If we have a reasonable suspicion that a domain name registered at Radix is being used in for phishing, malware, sale of counterfeit goods, hosting of illegal content, or otherwise being used for any illegal activity, or any activity which is in violation of our Acceptable Use and Anti-Abuse Policy, such domains are termed abusive and suspended with immediate effect and placed on "serverHold" and/or optionally under a Registry Lock. This may occur as a result of an abuse report, or because the domain name appeared on a list of abusive domain names. Why was I not intimidated when serverHold was applied on my domain?
