Published on: Wednesday 12 February 2014

It has been brought to our attention that an organisation calling itself ‘Domeinregistratie Nederland’.

It has been brought to our attention that an organisation calling itself ‘Domeinregistratie Nederland’ has been seeking to sell domain names with other extensions to the registrants of, for example, the .nl versions of the names in question. If you are approached by this organisation, please report the matter to fraudemeldpunt.nl.


We wish to emphasise that the organisation in question is not SIDN. SIDN is the registry for .nl. We do not sell .nl domain names to registrants directly, but always through our registrars. View view the list of our registrars.
