The Sunrise Service supports a limited pre-registration period during which trademark owners can register the domain name that matches their trademark. A Sunrise Period is mandatory for all new gTLDs and having a validated trademark entry in the Trademark Clearinghouse is the minimum requirement to participate in a new gTLD Sunrise Period.
The Trademark Claims service supports a second limited period following the Sunrise Period. It is a notification service – mandated by ICANN for all new gTLDs - to warn both domain name registrants as well as trademark holders of possible infringements. A prospective domain name registrant gets a warning notice when attempting to register a domain name that matches a trademark term in the TMCH. If, after receiving and accepting the notice, the domain name registrant does continue to register the domain name, the trademark holder with a corresponding mark will receive notification of the domain name registration, allowing them to take any appropriate action they feel necessary.
The fees always include:
Registration of the trademark record
Verification of the trademark record
Trademark claims services.
Our service of Trademark alert extends the coverage with respect to the Trademark Clearinghouse:
- Alerts when someone register a domain name that is equal or containing your brand.
- For .com, .net, .es, .com.es and new gTLDs domains.
