What's New

Hello BankStar Customers!  Welcome to our new website. 

Please note the change of our website from .com to .bank.  Our new .bank domain offers a higher level of security than our .com address.  To obtain a .bank domain, financial institutions are required to go through rigorous background checks to ensure that the bank is legitimate.  This scrutiny is not necessary to gain a .com domain.  When transitioning to a .bank domain, higher security standards are mandatory to protect customer data.  These higher standards are reviewed on a regular basis so that you may be assured of the latest updates for internet security.  Assisting in safe transmission of confidential information, helping to prevent online hacker attacks, and email authentication to help deliver a more secure website for our customers at ebankstar.bank is what we are striving for!
