LegitScript - 3 excuses used by registrars

Postby Red Dwarf » Tue Feb 21, 2017 5:33 pm


On a daily basis, LegitScript reaches out to registrars around the world. Most registrars voluntarily embrace their important role of promoting internet safety and protecting public health (as seen in this recent enforcement efforts blog post.) However, there’s a small minority of registrars that don’t. These are some of their most common excuses for not taking action in response to reports of abuse.

Excuse #1: “Sorry, but you need a court order for that.”
Excuse #2: “We only manage the domain name. The website content is not hosted on our servers.”
Excuse #3: “The registrant provided us a valid pharmacy license.”

Click through to this article, and see why none of these excuses hold up, and why they can get the registrar into legal trouble.
