This new Top-Level Domain is .PROBLEMATIC

(I apoligize in advance if there is a redirection or a pop-up)

Extract: "Beginning June 1, any party may purchase a .SUCKS domain name on a first-come, first-served basis. Companies, understanding the risk, may want to queue their names with a domain name registrar so that they can grab relevant domain names for their other marks as soon as the domains launch to the general public. Finally, beginning June 1, any party may purchase a .SUCKS domain name to block the domain for $199".

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

  • Art 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;
