Section 18 of the Domain Act requires DK Hostmaster to maintain a so-called WHOIS database, which must be accurate, up-to-date, and public about the name, address, and telephone number of all registrants of a .dk domain name. However, the requirement for the information to be public does not apply to registrants who have name and address protection or another right to keep their information confidential by law.
If you have reasonable suspicion that a registrant's information in the database is not accurate, you can report this to DK Hostmaster. Your report must include the following content and form requirements.
You must send an email to DK Hostmaster at this address: firstname.lastname@example.org
In this mail you must clearly state:
- Your email address,
- the domain name that, in your opinion, is listed with incorrect information in the WHOIS database,
- a reason for your suspicion that the information is incorrect; and
- if available, documentation of your reasoned suspicion.
All reports will be received by DK Hostmaster, who will then assess whether the statement is so well-founded that a further investigation should be initiated. You will receive confirmation of your report.
If, after conducting the investigation, DK Hostmaster is unable to establish that the registrant's name, address, or telephone number information is accurate, the registrant's domain name will be suspended. This will be done within 30 days after DK Hostmaster received your report. After 30 days from the time of suspension of the domain name, the domain name will be deleted.
This notification scheme is established based on section 15 of the Administrative Order on the Internet domain .dk, read the Administrative Order here (Danish only).
