UpGuard BreachSight monitors your domains and IPs on a daily basis. We use a number of techniques to automatically discover your domains and IPs, but sometimes you might want to add to your list. This could include domains for unofficial company side projects, subsidiaries or anything else our engine couldn't identify based on its matching heuristics.

This guide provides a couple of solutions to this, depending on your requirements and outlines the pros and cons of each approach.

Adding a single domain

You can add a single domain or IP address by clicking the Add domain or IP button at the top of your BreachSight > Domains and IPs panel. For detailed instructions, please view our guide on How to add a domain to UpGuard BreachSight.

The benefits of adding a domain or IP this way is that you can add and remove custom entries at any time, and domains and IPs added in this way will only show up on your BreachSight interface. That is, auto discovered domains for your organization are used to populate your external facing domain list for Vendor Risk, but custom added domains and IPs will remain in your list only. For instructions on removing a custom domain or IP please view our guide on How to remove a custom domain from UpGuard BreachSight.

Adding a domain and all of its subdomains

Sometimes you might find that a particular group of domains are missing - for example a domain and all of its associated subdomains. If you add a domain to your custom list our engine will not automatically pull all of the subdomains into your custom list as well.

In this situation, you have a few options. You can either add each of the relevant subdomains manually (if there is a small number). You can send a list of domains to your Technical Account Manager or UpGuard Support asking for this list of custom domains to be added to your account. Or you can ask that we officially associate this group of domains with your organization in our engine.

The benefits of the first two options are that the custom domains are only associated with your profile in the context of your BreachSight account and will not show up in Vendor Risk when other users view your profile. The benefit of the official association option is that the engine will associate these domains and subdomains with your organization across all products. The engine will also automatically discover new subdomains if they are created in the future and associate them with your profile.

If you are unsure, please contact UpGuard Support and we can discuss how these options can meet your needs.
