Ping Registry Provider and its parent company (collectively, “PRP”) have established an abuse point of contact to help facilitate the review, evaluation and resolution of abuse complaints in a timely manner. If you believe your rights have been violated or infringed by registration or use of a .PING domain name, the abuse contact can be reached by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. For tracking purposes, we will utilize a ticketing system with which all complaints will be tracked internally. The reporter will be provided with the ticket reference identifier for potential follow-up.
Misuse or abusive use of .PING domain names will not be tolerated. Misuse of a domain name is the use of the domain name for any purpose other than in connection with PRP’s business or commercial purposes. Abusive use of a domain name is an illegal, disruptive, malicious, or fraudulent action and includes, without limitation, the following:
- The use of electronic messaging systems to send unsolicited bulk messages.
- Phishing, or any attempt to acquire sensitive information such as usernames, passwords, and credit card details by masquerading as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication.
- Redirecting of unknowing users to fraudulent sites or services.
- Willful distribution of malware or dissemination of software designed to infiltrate or damage a computer system without the owner’s informed consent. Examples include, without limitation, computer viruses, worms, key loggers, and Trojan horses.
- DNS hijacking or poisoning.
- Use of malicious fast-flux techniques to disguise the location of Web sites or other Internet services, or to avoid detection and mitigation efforts, or to host illegal activities.
- Botnet command and control, including services run on a domain name that are used to control a collection of compromised computers or “zombies,” or to denial-of-service attacks.
- Distribution of child pornography or any images of abuse.
- Illegal access of computers or networks.
