if someone has registred his domain on a fake name and adress, is this domain valid? Or can i write to internic that the current domain owner does not exists and i want this domain?

I believe you can contact internic about this but they aren't going to just hand it over to you. It will be placed on hold and then deleted.

Paul is right Internic will NOT just hand-over a domain to ANYONE. As to the name not being right, for Internic to even consider doing anything, it would have to be proven that NONE of the information on the registration was valid (address, email, and phone numbers). As long as the regsiter had a valid way to contact the owner at all, Internic doesn't care what is in the regisrtaion file if the registar is OK with it. Internic has more important things to worry about than you not knowing the address or real name of the owner of 318rh.com . Matter-of-fact, under certain stipulations, the rules even state that information can be hidden by the registar at the domain holder's reguest. For instance, my domains: address, and phone number are valid at register but whois shows them as "private", and my email is a forwarding email they assign to my domain ( email@example.com for example ) -- Perfectly within the rules, and I use an Internic Accredited register, who allows this. I own a government contracting company with contracts with gov. entities around the globe, so I don't want you looking me up harrassing me in emails or on phone, and I sure don't want hacker-mad-at-me showing up at my office or home :P

If you believe the whois record to be bogus and the owner a possible cybersquatter, you could try reporting it to the registrar of the domain name. They may contact you if there is anything in their policies about addressing this type of issue. But I think the previous posts are probably correct that it wouldn't be as simple as that to have the domain name deleted or handed over.

Yeah, the domain name registration companies don't really care as long as they get their money. Now trying to register an Israeli domain name is a bit harder. Not only do you have to fill it out on their website and apply for the domain, but you have to call them to verify your order. Even though you can still lie and give them a false name (since all domains have to be either registered to a company or an individual.) They do want proof of who you are though as a company. An individual you have more room to screw around and lie as to who you are. But when it comes down to it. Who really cares as long as they pay the fees every year. Just makes it harder for you to track them down and get a domain from them .

But if the registrar finds out that false information is being inputted in the domain whois database, they have the rights to terminate the domain.
