Release of data about previous registrations
If you require information on a domain name previously owned by you (for example, the period during which you had right of use), you can request the information by filling out our contact form.
Please note that if you are a private individual, we are not permitted to release information that is more than five years old.
Previous registrations of others
If you require access to the name, address and company registration number of the former registrant, agent or payer of a domain name, you may fill out our contact form.
After we receive your request, we assess whether you have a legal interest in release of the data. Based on our assessment, we decide whether we can release the information to you and, if so, which information we are able to release.
In the case of personal data, you should be aware that we will contact the registrant to know if he has any objections. It is not possible to release information that is more than five years old.
If we decide against releasing the requested historical data, and if you require the information for clarification purposes in connection with a current court case, you may apply for a discovery order against DK Hostmaster with a view to gaining access to the information. If you require the information to make a decision on who to sue, you may apply for a discovery order according to Section 299 and Section 343 (1) of the Danish Administration of Justice Act. These sections contain the authority, according to current legal practice, to obtain a court order for release of data from a third party, even if said data are not required in connection with a pending court case.
If you are not satisfied with DK Hostmaster’s decision, you may appeal.
A legal interest is when the information may change your legal status or be required to make a claim. It is a legal interest when the information influence the outcome of a pending or upcoming lawsuit, or for a lawsuit to be brought.
