Information for Domain Holders

If you are the holder of a domain, please refer to our Domain Query to request all related data registered in the DENIC database.

When and How Do I Get Information about the Holder of a Specific Domain

Under certain conditions, DENIC provides information about the holder of a specific domain upon individual request.

Name and Trademark Rights

If you are the owner of a right to a name or trademark that may be violated by this specific domain, you can request information about the holder of the domain with the form provided by DENIC for this purpose. You will find more detailed information in the form itself.

Public Authorities

If you are a public authority and intend to act in the exercise of your public powers (for instance in relation with law enforcement, risk prevention or by means of a garnishing order), you may request information about the holder of a domain in certain cases by means of the form provided by DENIC for this purpose. You will find more detailed information about the individual case groups and the conditions to be met in the form itself.

Garnishment under Civil Law

If you have obtained an enforceable title against the domain holder and intend to garnish the domain holder's claims defined in the domain contract or have already done so, you can assure yourself that the domain holder is actually the holder of this specific domain by using the form provided by DENIC for this purpose. You will find more detailed information in the form itself. Due to data protection reasons, there is no possibility, however, to query which domain is held by a specific debtor.

Insolvency Administrator for the Assets of the Domain Holder

If you are an insolvency administrator for the assets of an (alleged) domain holder, DENIC can provide you with information as to whether the respective debtor in insolvency is actually the holder of the domain. Please fill in the form provided by DENIC for this purpose. You will find more detailed information about the conditions to be met for being provided information in the form itself.

Infringements of Rights by Websites

If you think that the contents of a website that can be accessed under a .DE domain may be illegal (e.g. due to personality or copyright infringements), you will find the operator of the website in the website's imprint. If the imprint is faulty or missing you can send a message to the e-mail address reserved for Abuse which can be found via our domain service. DENIC can itself only provide information about the domain holder if you can prove that you are personally affected by the possibly illegal contents. Please explain in writing by e-mail to whois[at]denic[dot]de to what extent you are significantly affected and enclose appropriate evidence.

Please note that the domain holder is not necessarily identical with the operator of the website.

No Information about the Holder of a Specific Domain Provided

In all other cases, DENIC will normally not provide any information.
