  • Hello!

    I’m dealing with two WordPress blogs created to defame and slander a company/person. The authors go beyond the limit of ethics and post extremely obscene text and pics.

    Also, the blogs are abandoned. The authors created them only to discredit the reputation by posting defamatory content and making them shown on the top of Google Search.

    Could you please tell me which measures can be taken in this case?

    I would appreciate your advice

    Regards,
    Olga

    WordPress.org does not providing hosting for sites, it provides the software for other people to build their own sites on their own hosts. WordPress’ philosophy and bill of rights permit people to use WordPress software for any reason they want, without any enforcement over legality or illegality. We leave that up to the webhosts. In cases of theft, abuse, harassment, or other such behavior, your best recourse is to contact their web host directly. You can use WHOIS to determine where they’re hosted, as well as resources like https://www.whoishostingthis.com to find relevant information.
