How does Siteimprove identify domains associated with my organization?

The GDPR Module provides an inventory of domains, sub-domains, and IP addresses found to be associated with your organization, along with metadata such as who registered the domain, etc.

But how does Siteimprove determine which domains are associated with your organization?

We consider sites that have been added to GDPR, and sites that are already being checked by the Siteimprove Content suite, as Confirmed Domains, i.e., belonging to your organization.

We then use IP lookup and domain lookup to find related domains. Domains found to have either the same: IP address, Registrant Name, or Registrant Organization Name as an already confirmed domain, will be listed in the Unconfirmed Domain list.

Users have the option to confirm or reject domains listed. When domains are moved from unconfirmed to confirmed we recommend that you use the “Re-check domain” button to trigger the discovery of other domains associated with your organization. Rejected Domains is a list of domains that have previously been rejected from either the confirmed or unconfirmed domain list.

If you do not see a domain that belongs to your organization, you can add the domain using the ‘Add domain’ button at the top of the domain table.

In summary, domains are categorized as follows within the GDPR module:

  • Confirmed Domain: Domains that have been confirmed as belonging to your organization.
  • Unconfirmed Domain: Domains for which ownership has not been confirmed. These domains have been found to have either the same IP address, Registrant Name, or Registrant Organization Name as an already confirmed domain.
  • Rejected Domains: Domains which have been previously rejected from either the confirmed or unconfirmed domain list.
