Domain names in Denmark are regulated by the Act on Internet Domains Specifically Allocated to Denmark (also called Danish Domain Law) and the general terms of business of DK-Hostmaster A/S.

Domain names in Denmark are regulated by the Act on Internet Domains Specifically Allocated to Denmark (also called Danish Domain Law) and the general terms of business of DK-Hostmaster A/S, which administers Danish domains.

Danish domain names are registered on a ‘first come, first served’ basis, without any examination of whether the domain name infringes third-party trademark rights or rights to names or other distinctive marks.

This causes problems for companies acting in the Danish market, especially when someone registers and thereby controls a domain name that is either identical to or resembles the name or trademark of a third party with the sole purpose of reselling or renting the domain name to the third party for an unreasonable price.
