In close cooperation with our clients we manage large domain name portfolios, launch new gTLDs, monitor and take down infringing content on the Internet, and give advice on new trends and threats.
Domain Name Management
Competition Is In the Detail
As a core service, we deliver domain name registrations and management worldwide, including all ccTLDs, IDNs and new gTLDs.
In addition to the more or less commoditized domain name services, we differ by creating and implementing domain name policies balancing resources and budgets with our clients’ needs for online brand promotion and protection.
Most of our clients have decided to outsource the daily administrative tasks to us – including coordination of domain name registration and DNS updates with subsidiaries and agencies.
As an agile and flexible company we are able to adapt our services to the specific needs and organizational structures and workflows of each of our clients. Some clients have a need for enhanced security levels, others for response guarantees, and yet others prefer basic services at lower cost.
Our concept is backed by our explicit service level agreement with delivery guarantees and with explicit penalties in case the SLA should not be met.
Having transferred numerous large domain name portfolios, we have developed a uniquely secure and smooth migration plan and scheme, which remove the headache of changing domain name providers and almost eliminate switching cost.
Results Delivered – Not Just Problems Presented
We offer all known types of brand monitoring covering domain names, social media profiles, auction sites, websites, phishing, malware, trademark registrations, apps, and adwords. Our services are all inclusive – once you get to know us, as our other clients know us, you will only see and hear about results and not about problems. We report to you what has been taken down, or which case is to be handed over to your law firm or law enforcement. Initially, we will of course – in a mutual learning process – involve you in all cases, before submitting take down notifications or c/d letters
If you are facing challenges in China or other specific countries, we would be happy to explore with you, if we can assist you protecting your brand. As a standard commoditized service, we deliver monitoring for domain registrations in all the new gTLDs including those in Chinese script. You can order monitoring services with or without our filtering, analysis, and take down services.
Are You Ready For More Than 1,000 New Top Level Domains?
From October 2013, twenty new Generic Top Level Domains (gTLDs) are launching every week. 32 of those are in Chinese script and available on a first come first served basis.
Should you register your mark under .com in Chinese? How about .london? Or .Africa? Or is .online or .sport more relevant?
Plan ahead and reduce cost!
We offer registrations of domain names in all new gTLDs.
We assist TM owners with formulating and implementing strategies for seizing promotional opportunities and for protecting your IPR online.
As an agent of the new Trademark Clearing House (TMCH) we can file your marks directly with the TMCH, which will enable you to pre-register in any of the new gTLDs. We deliver monitoring and take down services for all new gTLDs.
We offer workshops and webinars in cooperation with law firms, with the TMCH, and with registries in order to create awareness about the massive change of the domain name landscape we are now facing. The launch of new gTLDs forces brand owners to rethink their domain name strategy. Which gTLDs to register in, which ones to ignore or to block? We can assist you in defining and implementing a balanced approach to the new gTLDs and in general.
We have a database of all new gTLDs (pricing, categories, requirements) contact us below, if you are interested.
