More Frequently asked questions
What does cybercrime mean?
Cybercrime is a collective term for all online dangers, such as phishing via email, identity fraud, DDoS attacks, hacking, and ransomware (hostage-taking of data).
What is domain name fraud?
Domain name fraud is a popular trick used by scammers. They approach you under the guise of a hosting company and claim that someone else wants to register your domain name with a different (country) extension. They warn you about the competition and make you an offer, often via email or an unknown number.

How do I recognize fraud through a domain name or email address?
It can be difficult to recognize fraud. Be sure to check that it is the real website or email address and not a similar copy. For example, pay attention to spelling and punctuation. If you don't trust it, block it and report it to fraudehelpdesk.nl
When is there a case of domain name hijacking?
Also known as 'grabbing', which literally means 'grabbing'. This occurs when a domain name is deliberately registered to obstruct a party that is already using this name offline or in another way online. The boundary with drop catching of existing names that come out of quarantine is thin, but the difference mainly lies in the intention one has with the domain name.
What is an SSL certificate?
Think of it as a digital passport for secure internet use. It is a small data file for websites that encrypts data to make it difficult for cybercriminals to obtain information from visitors.
