iQ Abuse Manager – Not Just for Registries

This is an article originally posted on the iQ blog on September 9, 2020.

Subsequent to our last post announcing RegistryOffice becoming iQ, our new company name and the umbrella for all our products and services, we’d like to inform you that iQ Abuse Manager (formerly RegistryOffice Abuse Monitor) is now used by leading registrars and nearly 150 gTLDs and ccTLDs, and is also available to hosting service providers and brands.

Check out our just released 5 minute introductory video:

iQ Abuse Manageris our abuse management service where we offer access to curated abuse feeds from the world’s leading sources together with an API and management system, which makes handling domain name abuse cases efficient as possible.  We also provide a fully managed service utilising this tool.

The applications for our service are quite broad. For example, If you are a brand owner with a portfolio of domain names, IQ Abuse Manager can alert you if any of those names have been reported in our abuse feeds.  

If you are a registry operator contracted with ICANN, the iQ Abuse Manager will assist you in keeping your namespace clean and in compliance with ICANN Spec 11.3.b. 

If you are a registrar, you can for example, integrate our API with your existing CRM/ticketing system to proactively detect and manage reported abuse cases. With this tool a registrar can work in concert with various parties in reducing abuse levels. 

Whether you are a registry, registrar or hosting service, iQ Abuse Manager will help you improve your abuse workflow, reduce associated costs, mitigate false positives and help to protect your own brand and reputation.  It also helps to build a safer Internet! 

We’re currently offering a free no-obligation trial. Contact us at to get started.
