.TOP Registry may cancel the registration or suspend registration of a domain name:
(a) if .TOP Registry believes that the domain name was registered for use in a "phishing" attack or other illegal activity of any kind.
(b) if inaccurate or false contact details are provided.
Further to these conditions, .TOP Registry operates the following policy regarding suspected "phishing" domain names:
If we have a reasonable suspicion that a domain name registered at .TOP Registry is being used in for phishing, sale of counterfeit goods, hosting of illegal content, or otherwise being used for any illegal activity, we will place the domain name on "Server Hold" and optionally under a Registry Lock. This may occur as a result of an abuse report, or because the domain name appeared on a list of abusive domain names.
We will then notify the current registrar for the domain name and ask them to investigate the registration of the domain.
If the registrar provides evidence that refutes the abuse report, or positive evidence that the registration was not in "bad faith", we will unlock the domain name and place it on the "Live" status.
If you have any comments or questions regarding these rules, we will be happy to receive them.
