Priority registration

Each time a new extension reaches the market, you can apply for domain registration of your corresponding brand before it is available for anyone. Registering at the right time is essential to protect your image.


Enrollment for TMCH is useful to dissuade others from registering fraudulent domains. When a domain corresponding to your Brand name is going to be purchased, the person who is recording is informed that the rights of that domain are legally protected.


The TMCH service will alert you whenever someone does a domain registration containing your brand: you always control your name, you know what is made of it and you can decide to take any recovery actions if the domain will damage your image.
