Registry Red.es has started cooperation with the National Cybersecurity Institute of Spain (INCIBE) in order to clean its registration database of suspicious and incorrect domain names.
INCIBE will carry out specific analysis on all .es domain names to identify those which have substantive evidence of inaccurate or false registration data. INCIBE shares the found domains with the .es registry, who verifies the list and may start the following clean-up procedure:
- The registry sends an email to the registrant and administrative contact of the domain to notify them about the deficiencies found. The registry grants a period of three (3) calendar days to make the necessary corrections.
- If no corrections are made within the time allowed, Red.es starts a “special cancellation procedure”, which means that the domain will first be deactivated in the DNS, and finally be deleted from the system. During this period, which will take up to 30 days, changes can still be submitted to the registry.
The registry intends to send notifications at the start of each week, to ensure the three calendar days equal three business days in most cases.
Please inform your customers to act quickly upon receipt of any email from the registry.
