All sensitive domain names disputes are governed and administered in accordance with .my DOMAIN REGISTRY’s Sensitive Name Dispute Resolution Policy (SNDRP), Rules of the .my DOMAIN REGISTRY’s SNDRP and KLRCA Supplemental Rules.
A sensitive name dispute arises when a complainant feels or believes that a registered “.my” domain name contains such sensitive words and the sensitive names dispute resolution is a process that allows a complainant to challenge the registration of such domain names.
KLRCA provides a simple, fast and affordable resolution of .my domain name disputes. SNDRP governs the terms of resolving a dispute between the owner of a .my domain name and a Complainant over the Respondent’s registration and/or use of a domain name which contains a Sensitive Name.
