What is Blacklist Monitoring?

PowerDMARC’s DNS Blacklist Monitor helps domain owners track and monitor their domain names, emails, and IP addresses in real-time DNS Blacklists, also known as RBL (Real-time Blackhole List) or DNSBL (DNS Blacklist). These IP Blacklists maintain a list of malicious or spammy domains and IP addresses – naturally, you do not want to be on this list!

Getting Blacklisted is the Last Thing You Want!

Your domain’s reputation determines how recipient email servers perceive and treat messages sent from your IP addresses. Once you get blacklisted on multiple DNS blacklists – your reputation is at stake! Getting blacklisted can have the following consequences:

  • Reduced visibility and search engine rankings

  • Dropped engagement and conversion rates

  • Valuable email recipients not getting emails

  • Cybersecurity threats leading to data breaches

  • Financial losses and bad company reputation

Common Reasons Why Your Domain May Get Blacklisted

Some of the common reasons for domains to appear on DNS blacklists are as follows: 

Summary of Monitoring

Use the Summary tab on your “Reputation Monitoring” dashboard to review the results of your blacklist monitoring check and track the percentage of domains/emails that are: 

  • Blocklisted: listed on more than one blacklist database 
  • Watchlisted: listed on one blacklist database
  • Whitelisted: not listed on any of these databases

Configuring Asset Groups

Use the Configuration tab to register the domain names, IPv4 and IPv6 addresses you wish to monitor and set up custom intervals for the checks. You can check DNS blacklists as often as 30 minutes, or at longer intervals like 12 hours.

Blacklist Alerts History

The Alerts History tab allows you to set up custom notifications sent to your email address or webhooks every time any of your registered assets appear on any of the DNS blacklists.
