DK Hostmaster suspends a .dk domain name used for fraud with e-Boks and NemID

DK Hostmaster has suspended a .dk domain name due to the risk of phishing and confusion with e-Boks and NemID. DK Hostmaster implemented the suspension based on an obvious risk of compromising IT equipment; a legal ability described in the terms and conditions for the right of use to a .dk domain name.

The suspension was carried out on the basis of a complaint against the domain name in question. The domain name was used in connection with a website where personal information, credit card information and passwords were lured from visitors.

DK Hostmaster's option for suspension of a domain name

As a provider of Internet infrastructure, DK Hostmaster does not have the option of suspending .dk domain names based on a complaint alone. However, DK Hostmaster may suspend and delete a .dk domain name after receiving a complaint clarifying that the following three points in the terms of the terms. 9.2 are met:

  • The domain name is used in connection with obvious risk of financial crime, compromise of IT equipment, i.e. phishing and malware distribution, and / or content of a highly infringing nature, and
  • the use of the domain name creates a risk of confusion with another natural or legal person's domain name, name, logo, trademark, or other characteristics, and
  • the circumstances suggest not waiting for a decision from the Complaints Board for Domain Names or the courts.
