.BANK offers security, inspires trust

Extract: "Although .BANK is currently just in the process of being rolled out, plans have been in the works for some time. In 2008, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), the non-profit organization responsible for IP address allocation, as well as managing domain name system management, approved a program that opened the Internet to thousands of new generic top-level domains (gTLDs), in addition to the ubiquitous .com and .org extensions".

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

Reminder:
  • Banks can register a ".bank" domain name with ComLaude;
  • 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 or sell your new gTLD? Contact Jovenet Consulting.
