The TMCH is a dedicated service to registered trademarks, which will give access to early registration of domains corresponding to your brand and will give you also alerts if a potentially damaging domain related to your brand is registered.
The service that proactively blocks registrations of domains containing your Brand. Do not let your reputation in the hands of others: defend your business strategically before it's too late.
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.
Every time a new extensionreaches the market, registration of domains containing your brand name will be locked automatically. For five years, only you can use your name in the domains with new TLD, preventing others from making fraudulent registrations.
Complementary to the enrollment for the TMCH, the DPML defends your interests among the hundreds of new extensions on the market. The world of new domains is constantly expanding and preventive coverage is what you need to defend the image of your company on the Web.
With the enrollment for DPML you avoid the cost of registration of all domains that you should manage to protect your Brand. Time is money: thanks to DPML you do not waste time with the registration procedures and you don't forget domains deadlines.
