Registrar compliance rates

Some registrars have been quick to distance themselves from Internet pharmacy fraud. They suspend services to registrants of domain names that are clearly being used for pharmacy fraud. They are the champions.

Then there are those other registrars. You know the type. They turn a blind eye and a deaf ear when they are notified of domains used for fraud. They put up all manner of lame excuses - like "there is not enough evidence", or "we are just the registrar, not the hosting site", or "we would need a court order", or "complain to the police" - just to avoid acting responsibly.

Then there are the in-betweens, those registrars that are part of the way to acting responsibly, part of the way to protecting innocent victims from fraud, but have yet some way to go to join the ranks of the champions.
 
Based on experiences over the past 12 months, we have compiled a table showing who are the rogues and who are the champions. We show the number of fraud domain names reported, the number the registrars have suspended, the percentage compliance, and the number of fraud domain names still live and defrauding innocent victims.

The champions are shown in blue, the rogues are in red.

Looking at the compliance rates of the most abused registrars, we see one Russian registrar R01 accounts for most of the fraud domains, followed by Key-Systems in Germany,  BIZCN in the People's Republic of China,  TUCOWS in Canada,

These graphs show the response time performance of the major registrars who are selected for abuse by Eva Pharmacy cyber-criminals.
They can be seen in full size at the Fraud Reports web site.

INCLUDING RUSSIAN:

75% of the Eva pharmacy web sites are registered in Russia.

EXCLUDING RUSSIAN:

Outside of Russia, Key-Systems from Germany, and BIZCN of China have the most fraud domains, followed by Tucows of Canada
Over the past year most international registrars have been diligent in cleaning out the frauds from their stable of registrations. Russia has been the safe harbor where the miscreants have been made to feel welcome. BIZCN in China has been very slow to respond over the past 4 months. Key-Systems in Germany and PDR respond within a week. The most outstanding performer is Trunkoz, who consistently suspend fraud domains within the hour.

This pie chart shows the extent to which each registrar is being abused by the Eva Pharmacy fraud. Russia is consistently the top of the scale, being responsible for anywhere between 75 and 95 percent.
