About Domain Intel service

The Domain Intel service allows you to retrieve intelligence about known domain names. Through a combination of providers, you gain access to the disposition of over 390 million domain addresses.

Benefits of using Domain Intel service

Pangea serves intelligence data from third-party providers, normalizing responses, to help you quickly identify malicious domains. All of this happens through a unified API and SDK - with no contracts or direct integrations to the provider required.

For example, if you set DomainTools as the provider, you’ll receive a standard score that can be easily interpreted in the API response. Armed with this information, you might choose to immediately block or investigate a domain in your environment.

Use Cases

The Domain Intel API can be embedded directly into your application to determine if a domain is known to be malicious. Common use cases include:

  • Detecting malicious domains in forum posts, blogs, chat sessions, social applications, or any other type of user generated content.
  • Blocking a user signing up for your app with an email that has a malicious domain in it.
  • Checking domain names extracted from files stored in the Pangea Secure Share.
  • Checking domain names extracted from suspicious files that have been either statically or dynamically analyzed (i.e. sandbox detonation or runtime behavior analysis).
  • Checking the address of incoming emails to detect and block Business Email Compromise, Phishing, and SPAM email campaigns. This may include one or more of the following, for example:
    • The From Address (e.g.
    • The Return-Path Domain (e.g.
    • The DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) Signing Domain
    • Any other links, headers, content, and brand assets included in the message
