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.
