Registrars - Rogues and Champions

Registrars - Rogues and Champions

Postby Red Dwarf » Tue Oct 15, 2013 10:40 pm

    Registrar compliance rates

    Some registrars have been quick to distance themselves from Internet pharmacy fraud. They suspend services to registrants of domain names that are clearly being used for pharmacy fraud. They are the champions.

    Then there are those other registrars. You know the type. They turn a blind eye and a deaf ear when they are notified of domains used for fraud. They put up all manner of lame excuses - like "there is not enough evidence", or "we are just the registrar, not the hosting site", or "we would need a court order", or "complain to the police" - just to avoid acting responsibly.

    Then there are the in-betweens, those registrars that are part of the way to acting responsibly, part of the way to protecting innocent victims from fraud, but have yet some way to go to join the ranks of the champions.

    Based on experiences over the past 12 months, we have compiled a table showing who are the rogues and who are the champions. We show the number of fraud domain names reported, the number the registrars have suspended, the percentage compliance, and the number of fraud domain names still live and defrauding innocent victims.

    The champions are shown in blue, the rogues are in red.

    Looking at the compliance rates of the most abused registrars, we see one Russian registrar accounts for most of the fraud domains, followed by PDR (owned by Endurance Domains) , then Key-Systems GmbH in Germany, and then followed by TUCOWS in Canada

    These graphs show how many are left to suspend at October 6, 2015


    INCLUDING RUSSIAN:

    Over 80% of the Eva pharmacy web sites are registered in Russia, and over 10% in Germany..


    EXCLUDING RUSSIAN:
    Image
    Key-Systems has the most fraud domains outside of Russia, followed by BIZCN of China and Public Domain Registry.

    Over the past year most international registrars have been diligent in cleaning out the frauds from their stable of registrations. Russia has been the safe harbor where the miscreants have been made to feel welcome. BIZCN in China has been slow to respond over the past 4 months. Key-Systems in Germany have recently refused to take action, and are becoming the second most abused registrar as a result.

    We can readily see that 80% of live fraud sites are sponsored by R01 in Russia and 10% by Key-Systems in Germany

    The other registrars demonstrate a remarkable amount of honesty and integrity in combating cyber-crime.
