How and where can I file abuse complaints?

If you need to report a domain, website or email address involved in illegal/abusing activities, here are some tips you may follow to make this process easier.

Your actions will depend on the type of the issue you would like to report. Here is the brief information regarding the most common issues:

1) Spam. If you receive spam emails, you should report the issue to the email service provider used for sending emails. You may find their contact details using the originating IP Whois (the originating IP can be found in email headers).

If you are not sure how to read email headers, you may contact us by submitting a ticket to Abuse department, and we will gladly assist you with this.

2) Phishing is the act of attempting to acquire sensitive information (usernames, passwords, or credit card details) using fake websites that are almost identical to the legitimate ones. If you detect such a website, you may report it so that further actions are taken.

Reporting phishing will require submitting a ticket to  Abuse department. We would highly appreciate it if you attach a screenshot of the abusive website and specify the target of the phishing attack.

3) Copyright infringement. If you detect a website that infringes your exclusive rights to some content, you will need to submit a ticket to our  Abuse department.

Also, you might want to contact the domain holder directly regarding the issue. You can find their contact details using ICANN  Whois tool.

7) Trademark infringement. In case a domain registered with SiberName contains a trademarked word or word combination you have the rights to, please submit a ticket to Abuse department for further instructions. You might also get in touch with the domain holder directly using Whois details assigned to the domain.

8) Invalid Whois details. If you consider contact information of any particular domain (registered with SiberName) to be invalid, please submit a ticket to us choosing Abuse department.
