Federal Service for Supervision in the Sphere of Communications, Information Technology and Mass Communications' address to hostinging providers on quick coordination matters


As part of the legislative, regulatory, legal and departmental regulations governing the establishment, formation and maintenance of the Unified Registry, the Federal Service for Supervision in the Sphere of Communications, Information Technology and Mass Communications, after identifying prohibited information must notify the service provider hostinging the domain name disseminating this information.


Currently, the notification is sent to the email address specified on the services WHOIS, which is often not identical to the actual address of your hostinging provider. The hostinging provider, in turn, must notify the domain name owner and jointly take action to remove the forbidden information. If measures are not takenthe Federal Service for Supervision in the Sphere of Communications, Information Technology and Mass Communications includes the domain name, website reference and network address in the unified register and the telecom operator must restrict access to the forbidden information in line with its existing technical capabilities, including the network address (IP-address) .


Restricting access to prohibited content on the network address is an extreme measure taken by the operator in case it is technical impossibe to restrict access to the domain name or website reference.

Given limited access unforbidden resources on the the network address may be subject to restrictions.


To avoid misunderstandings related to an inaccurate e-mail for hostinging provider, or unreasonable, but forced access restriction to sites containing illegal information, due to their location on the same IP-address of the distributor of forbidden information theFederal Service for Supervision in the Sphere of Communications, Information Technology and Mass Communicationscalls upon hostinging providers to coordinate their actions with the authorized body as quickly as possible.


For doing so, each hostinging provider may tell Federal Service for Supervision in the Sphere of Communications, Information Technology and Mass Communicationstheir full correct name, contact details, e-mail address to receive notification on identified forbidden information.


THe Federal Service for Supervision in the Sphere of Communications, Information Technology and Mass Communications is also interested in a full list of domain names served by these providers and the range of IP-addresses that contain these domain names. This information providers may also submit information to the agency if they do not see that there is any violation of the agreements entered into with internal resource owners.


Information can be sent in electronic form, with a certified electronic signature, or on paper, signed by an authorized official.
