CleanDNS for Registrars

Failure to act and shut down DNS abusers could be costing you money. It could also draw the scorn of policy makers, industry watchdogs, civil lawsuits, and risk non-compliance with ICANN contracts.

The stakes are high: Make DNS abuse mitigation a priority

The hue and cry of public and private authorities against Internet abuse is gaining steam. CleanDNS monitors the Internet and DNS ecosystems to help registrars defend against malicious activities that threaten DNS infrastructures. These can include malware installation, C2 communications, botnets, network mapping, credential theft, pharming and spam. The CleanDNS Platform automates evidence-based DNS abuse reporting from trusted notifiers. We then provide experienced analysts to identify, report, and accelerate DNS abuse takedowns to mitigate your risk of penalties and liability exposure.

Whether you fully outsource your DNS abuse tracking and reporting to CleanDNS or just use our platform for data, CleanDNS will help facilitate a safer domain name system by standardizing and streamlining the abuse remediation process. We help our registrar clients detect, report, and root out DNS abuses, and we ensure that our clients can meet regulatory and ICANN compliance requirements.

By mitigating liability and agency pressures, registrars are not only able to create a better, safer Internet, but increase their margins and profitability by taking advantage of registry incentives and rebates.
