Hostmaster Information

The hostmaster@us.ntt.net address is not the appropriate contact for abuse/SPAM/UCE reports, network problems, or for zones that do not list hostmaster@us.ntt.net in the SOA. To figure out where your inquiry or request should be directed, look at the SOA of the zone in question.

For example, the address for the hostmaster of 192.168.0.0 is bmanning@isi.edu and for isi.edu it is koda@venera.isi.edu as taken from the sixth field of the SOA (with the first '.' changed to an '@') in the output below.
