Is your website popular. Have you been targeted using similar looking domain names in a phishing model attack ? What precautions can we take ?

All we can do is hope that our visitors remember our domain name. In that case, always use a simple to remember domain name and TLD.

Also mainstream browser work against phishing.

Browsers simply highlight the domain name. If the user is not sure what the domain name or the TLD was, it can still be a problem. Browsers like Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome pro actively use smart filters to save to from phishing.

I don't think Smart Screen filter from Edge is that smart. Google Chrome is a whole different story.

It is always better to have an header or announcement dedicated for this. We are this and kindly don't fall for phishing or misleading domains.

I don't think so, if they don't put then users might think they are also part of it.
