A complaint about a domain name

If you have a complaint about a domain registered through Openprovider, please contact the domain holder or administrative contact first.

Please refer to our Knowledge Base for more information about how Openprovider deals with complaints.


Actual Behavior[]

Some action has been taken on complaints of sponsoring illegal domains in May 2018. But this is a typical response:

We have informed the resellers about your complaint and he will investigate this issue.

Please, be aware that we, as a domain-only provider and not providing any content, hosting or e-mail services, are not in a position to judge the content of a website. For that reason, our normal procedure is that we inform our reseller and the domain holder, but will not suspend the domain names without an official WIPO decision or court order.

Unfortunately we cannot guarantee that our reseller will respond to the complainant.
