Domain squatting: what you can do to protect yourself (new gTLDs)

Extract: "The TMCH is a centralised system, meaning you can claim your ownership of your own brand trademark with them, for a one-time fee, and have that ownership logged, rather than having to do the same thing with multiple individual registries during their domain registration sunrise periods. There is an annual renewal fee to maintain your brand name in the database. If a third-party registers a domain that matches the trademark you’ve deposited with the TMCH, you will be notified".


  • Famous Clubs can register a ".club" domain name with UniRegistry;
  • Brands can submit their trademark data into the Trademark Clearinghouse ("TMCH") to participate in a Sunrise Period. The TMCH calendar is available here;
  • Promoting new domain names to end-users requires time, contact Jovenet Consulting for help.
