Unprecedented fall in .uk domain name suspensions

Cybercrimes are getting frequent and more evolved. Despite several security measures put in place, fraudsters find a way to bypass them. However, this news from the United Kingdom gives us hope. 

Nominet, the official registrar of  .uk domain names presented some very interesting statistics. The domain name suspensions of .uk names has taken a surprisingly low dip. About 2,487 .uk domain names were suspended in 2021. This figure becomes significant when compared to the figure of previous year which stood at 21,632. That’s a fall of more than 88%

The reason behind this fall is mainly attributed to a fall in numbers of intellectual property related suspensions. This became possible after the launch of  Operation Ashiko. An operation launched in association with Nominet and the Police Intellectual Property Crime Unit (PIPCU).
