This month, Grand Rapids State Bank transitioned its online presence to a new internet domain, “” The bank will use this new for all of their online

services as well as their website address.

The primary advantage is that this move creates a trusted, verified, more secure and easily identifiable location on the internet for customers to conduct their business with Grand Rapids State Bank, company representatives said in a news release. The new address provides robust security and meets strict verification requirements.

“Using a ‘.bank’ website reduces the risk of fraud and phishing attempts,” said Noah Wilcox, Grand Rapids State Bank President and CEO. “If customers receive a banking-related email that ends in ‘.com,’ they can be sure it wasn’t sent from us.”
