Abstract: Several new domains are being registered everyday due to the rapid enhancement of web users. Out of those domains, substantial number of domains become harmful and may initiate malicious activities on the web. It is very difficult to segregate these types of domain to protect our system from different types of attack. The system becomes more vulnerable due to the malicious propagation of domains. It is too complex to identify the exact classification of malicious domain. Contemporary trend of adaptive and learning methodologies could assist to learn such pattern of ill defined domain activities. Hence, intelligent methodologies can be better suitable to support unsupervised classification of domain. Thus metaheuristics-based searching support algorithm called cuckoo search (CS) could be applied for this purpose. Finally, an insight of object oriented engineering to implement the proposed model has been initiated and elaborated future extension of the model has also been discussed.
