What to do when an unauthorized person has registered a domain name?

Updated 10 Oct, 2020

There are times when domain names have been registered by an unauthorized holder. There may be situations such as: 
  • Unauthorized persons have registered domain names in the identity of legitimate companies 
  • Unauthorized persons have registered domain names in legitimate companies organization numbers, but with other contact and address information 
  • Unauthorized persons have registered domain names in the identity of other private individuals
  • Unauthorized persons have registered domain names in the identity of other private individuals, but with other contact and address information.
If such a case is discovered, you can email abuse@internetstiftelsen.se and inform about the errand. The abuse function then makes an assessment for further handling of the errand.
