DNS Belgium monitors a number of abuse lists/sites and sends notifications if a domain name is affected. The notifications are sent to the registrant, onsite and technical contact of the affected domain name. Notifications are sent for our 3 products: .be, .vlaanderen and .brussels.

An incident will trigger an e-mail with a link to our website On this website, you will find all incidents for your domain name. Every day an incident occurs, a new e-mail will be sent. The page concerning your website will also be updated for each new incident occurring for the next 21 days. If an incident is still present after five days, the e-mail will be resent.

It is the responsibility of the registrant to follow up on these notifications. If your website has been hacked, it is best to proceed as follows:

  • Contact the administrator of your website, who is best placed to help you track and remove the identified files. It is important to remove all infected files.

  • Change all the passwords of your hosting account, so that criminals cannot enter using the old data.

  • Make sure that the last updates of the CMS you use have been installed.
