Today, we introduce an intensified control of the identity of customers living outside Denmark. This happens after DK Hostmaster in November implemented mandatory identification with NemID for Danish customers.
In 2017, the police have so far seized 992 .dk domains, whereas persons living outside Denmark have registered the majority. For example, the seizures occur on the basis of false web shops.
We introduce the intensified identity control to make sure, that the Danish .dk zone are as free of abuse as possible. We continuously evaluate the need for new initiatives that can improve the Danish part of the internet. With this initiative, we expect that the number of seized .dk domains will decrease in the future.
From case to case, DK Hostmaster assess what kind of documentation a registrant living abroad will be asked to submit.
