Reporting abuse

If you have an objection to the content or use of a website, you should in the first instance complain to the person or organisation that has registered the website. If this route is unsuccessful you could complain to the person that is hosting the website.

You can use the Domain Lookup tool to find the registrant's name and address, and the registrar associated with the domain name. They may be able to help you identify the website host.

If you believe a domain name is being used to commit a crime, please email
