Employee email addresses have also changed, effective July 27.
Our website address conversion is complete, with the official domain name changing from www.crossplainsbank.com to www.SBCP.bank on Tuesday, July 24.
Please note that employee email addresses will also change to reflect the new website address, using the format: firstname.lastname@example.org.
New website address means added security
As a reminder, State Bank of Cross Plains chose to upgrade our website domain name from the “.com” extension to “.bank” in order to take advantage of the improved security the new extension provides.
The protections come from the process for applying for and receiving the new extension. Only verified banks and other financial institutions qualify for the .bank extension. The application process includes an in-depth background check and verification stage that is not part of a normal website naming procedure.
Anyone can set up a website – or clone a website – that uses typical extensions, such as .com, .org, .biz, .us, .net, and so on. The .bank extension cannot be set up without significant validation and cannot be cloned thanks to that application process.
We assume you’ll have some questions about this process and what it means for you. To learn more about the website address change, review our Frequently Asked Questions.
