We monitor the domain name system and strive to win the names that you require under Sunrise and new registry launches. We can often provide you with advance information because we also consult for registries, advising them on IP protection measures. We had a 100% accuracy rating for the .EU, .MOBI, .ASIA and .TEL Sunrises and were the third largest registrar of .XXX blocks, with a 99% success rate for our clients across almost 6,000 applications.
In the new gTLDs, we work with our clients to develop and implement cost-effective strategies combining monitoring and registration. We will advise you on the advantages and financial implications of participating in Qualified Launch programmes or Premium Name Auctions.
With hundreds of new gTLDs launching, companies must be proactive about both protecting and promoting their brands in this fast changing world.
As a registered agent of the Trademark Clearinghouse, we can help identify which trademarks to file and submit them for validation to the database on your behalf. We can also also advise you of the rights protection measures which some of the portfolio applicants are offering, such as Donuts’ Domains Protected Marks List (DPML).
Valideus, our sister company, provides dedicated consultancy services to brand owners currently engaged in ICANN’s New gTLD Program, or seeking to launch their own gTLD in the future.
The Trademark Clearinghouse (TMCH) is a centralised database of verified trademark information. Placing a trademark once into the TMCH saves you the cost and effort of submitting the same data for validation time after time by registry after registry. A valid TMCH entry provides the foundation for Sunriseparticipation and early notice of third-party registrations that may be of concern.
We offer a comprehensive service as an accredited agent for the TMCH.
