Managing Domain Name Abuse

For episode #4 of the iQ video blog series, we took a deeper dive into the world of managing domain name abuse with iQ’s resident expert and czar of managing domain name abuse for a variety of iQ clients, Mr. Steinar Grøtterød, officially Director of Registry Operations & Compliance at iQ.

I had the opportunity to get Steinar’s opinions on such matters as:

  • How can a registry or registrar reduce the amount of duplicative and non-actionable abuse reports?
  • How do you get off a blacklist or bad list?
  • Should there be evidence standards from the reputation/blacklist providers?
  • What’s up with ccTLDs and abuse?
  • Why do European ccTLD operators, registrars, and resellers need to start paying attention to the NIS2 Directive?

I publish to three blogs. One (PinkysEye.com) is related to my lifelong interest in photography, video, travel, and telling stories. The second (PinkyBrand.com) addresses my experiences and opinions in the domain name industry, where I’ve spent the better part of the last 25 years at the registry and registrar levels. The third (iq.global/blog) shares knowledge and updates from iQ Global AS regarding cybersecurity, business intelligence, DNS abuse, DevOps and consulting for the domain name and hosting industries.
