How to report a terrorism/animal/child abuse website?

it has come to my attention that there is a website using peer tube called « bestgore.fun » and they frequently host videos of children being beaten and multiple clips encouraging people to commit suicide or recruitment to join ISIS. how would one go about reporting this website to get it shut down? also, the website is frequented by known pedophiles. it makes me seethe with rage knowing there’s a community on peer tube that actively accepts animal and child abuse, this website has to be removed please help me.

Can’t you just report it to the police ?

You can indeed try to report to the police.

Also, using the whois command:

whois bestgore.fun

We can tell that the domain is handled by Cloudflare.
Searching for «abuse» in the whois response:

whois bestgore.fun | grep -i abuse

Gives:

Registrar Abuse Contact Email: registrar-abuse@cloudflare.com
Registrar Abuse Contact Phone: +1.4153197517

You can try to contact cloudflare with this email.

Doing the same for the IP:

# get the IPv4:
dig bestgore.fun
# this gives 192.187.113.58
whois 192.187.113.58 | grep -i abuse
# gives:

For the record, in France, there is a governmental platform to report such websites: internet-signalement.gouv.fr - Portail officiel de signalements de contenus illicites
As this site is not based in Europe, I don’t think it is the simplest/fastest way to block this site. Just giving the tips is someone else has a similar question.

go here:
https://instances.joinpeertube.org/instances
click on « Report an instance » (in the top-right corner).

instance.joinpeertube is just a search engine for PeerTube instances. It doesn’t block the access to the instance, but just don’t index it on https://sepiasearch.org/
Also, this instance is already blocked: PeerTube instances
