The website khilafah.is, with suspected links to ISIS (so-called “Islamic State”) was traced back to a web hosting company in Iceland over the weekend, but ISNIC director Jens Petur told Icelandic newspaper Visir that the URL was registered on September 14th to a man who lives in New Zealand.
“Right now the situation is that we have an URL with an .is suffix at ISNIC, according to the registration details the owner is living in New Zealand while the webhost is located in Hamburg, Germany.”
Mr Petur said it is the first time the country has had to shut down a website because of its content.
While the website has been shut down, INSIC says it has no power to delete the URL unless it receives a court order, or it is proven whoever registered the domain filed incorrect registration details.

Note: Obtaining a court order to shut down an offensive website can prove very expensive and time consuming. Trying to prove that the person who registered the domain field used incorrect registration details can also be very difficult, particularly when the person responsible for posting and controlling the offensive website content, is of such a pathetic cowardly character, that he deviously tries to remain anonymous by hiding behind a proxy domain name registrant. The malicious activities of a banned New Zealand company director who published recently on an overseas hosted website, numerous defamatory and malicious diatribes against a person whose views he opposes, used this same cowardly tactic used by terrorists and purveyors of internet paedophile material, and his actions have been reported to the NZ Police.
