Domain Restrictions

DNS Belgium has entered into a cooperation with FPS Economy in order to suspend fraudulent websites within one day. This approach is designed to ensure consumer confidence in .be websites.

  • The new protocol has been active since December 1,2018 and authorizes DNS Belgium, at the request of the FPS Economy, to block notably .be domain names that:

    • are used for fraudulent webshops, or

    • host phishing websites (i.e. websites which imitate other websites in order to obtain credit card details, for instance).

  • The new procedure will only be used in the event of serious crimes. The registrant has two weeks to react. After six months, the blocked domain name expires.

  • DNS.BE does not support admin contacts, wherefore the admin contact will always be equal to the owner contact.
  • Policy notes:
    • The whois data provided for the registrant must be accurate and up-to date. It is not permitted to replace the registrant data with the data of the registrar or its reseller, unless expressly requested by the registrant. The registrant must be permitted to change registrars freely. It is not permitted to charge fees for permission or handling of a transfer-out, neither may the registrant be required to give more than a month's notice or give reasons for the transfer. Sales of expiring domain names involving owner changes without the explicit consent and the observation of the registry transfer procedures are not permitted by registry policy.
  • DNS.BE offers registration certificates
