When it comes to domain reputation, you’ll be hard pushed to find more experienced researchers than those at Spamhaus. We wanted to harness their talents and share their expertise on the domain landscape, therefore we’ve crafted the Spamhaus Quarterly Domain Reputation Update. Let’s uncover what domain intelligence lies within…
Fundamentally, no matter what you’re doing on the internet, legitimate or otherwise, you must almost always use a domain name. Without a domain name, most malicious activity wouldn’t get started, let alone be successful. It’s as simple as that.
So it’s essential that we shine a light on this kind of nefarious activity to raise awareness and help make the internet a safe place. In equal measure, it’s also important to promote positive behavior and feature service providers who go above and beyond to ensure they don’t give safe refuge to bad actors.
We’ve been building threat intelligence for over 20 years. In that time, our researchers have built strong relationships with the internet community, who share connection data and support our vast sensor network. From government organizations to global industry-leading internet providers and specialized researchers and analysts.
For anyone with alarm bells ringing in relation to data sharing, fear not. This data never contains any personally identifiable information (PII) but rather information regarding the activity of internet-based resources.
This big data is analyzed by our researchers using machine learning, manual investigations, and heuristics to identify any badness. Malicious IPs, domains, or content are listed on the relevant dataset. Of course, for this report, it’s purely our domain data that fuels the insight.
You’ll find 21 pages filled with data and commentary across the domain name ecosphere, including, but not limited to:
You can find the report here.
With this being our first release, we don’t doubt that there’s more intelligence you’d like us to share in future iterations. We already have enhancements planned for Q3 (so watch this space!), but we’d love to know what you, the reader, would like to see adding.
So let us know your feedback via our social channels – Twitter or LinkedIn. In the meantime, get stuck into the report and spread the word, so as a community, we start to affect positive change and influence better online behavior.

I write this article for all of you out there who aren't deeply embedded in this industry because the people I work with are remarkable. The world should know what they are doing to quietly protect all those who say “Spamwho?” be that your grandma or the network nerd at work.
