Some more .SUCKS promotion, thank you Alex

Extract: "The problem is that ICANN's new domain program has an elaborate set of rules to protect trademark holders from cybersquatting. For most domains, the theory that people might expect names like disney.miami or viagra.hockey to have some relationship to the company that owns the brand name is not totally absurd".

Note: did you know there is a TLD which means "trademark"? The ".商标" IDN stands for “.trademark” in Simplified Chinese.

Reminder:
  • Sports 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;
  • Need to promote your new gTLD? Contact Jovenet Consulting for help.
