Network Abuse Clearinghouse

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Network Abuse Clearinghouse, better known as abuse.net, maintains a contact database for reporting network abuse. It makes entries from the database available (via Web, DNS, and WHOIS), and provides an intermediary service for registered users to forward complaints by e-mail.[1]

In 1997, abuse.net started as an experimental service for users to send complaints to domain.name@abuse.net for clearing.[2]
