Some 29,000 UK web domains suspended for criminal activity

The number of .uk web domains suspended for criminal activity fell to 28,937 from 32,813 in the 12 months to October 2019, according to the UK’s national domain name system (DNS) operator, Nominet, the first recorded fall in five years.

Nominet will usually move to suspend a web domain following notification either from the police or several other law enforcement agencies rule it’s is being used for criminal activity.
