Whenever you come across web pages with content you suspect is illegal, the problem is usually not related to the domain name itself. As a result, other parties are most often better placed to do something about it.

How to remove content online

The only effective means of making an unlawful service entirely inaccessible without negatively affecting third parties, is to remove the content or shut down the service. This can only be done where the service or content is located. In cases where it is difficult to access the content, prosecuting authorities and the legal system can take steps against the domain name.
