Fake online shop on my former domain – what can I do?

Unfortunately, it has been common lately for expiring domains to be misused for fraudulent activities. These domains are registered after expiry of the on-hold period and a fake shop is opened.

SWITCH has published a detailed article on this subject.

If you are a former holder of an expired domain or if you happen to come across such a website, you can report it to the following address:

Registration form Fedpol

Feedpol will investigate the case. If it is authorized, a message is sent to the registry. SWITCH as registry of the .ch & .li domains will then take measures which may lead to the deletion of the domain within 30 days. During this time the fake page is still accessible.

You are also welcome to report such cases to helpdesk@switchplus.ch
