Domain Name Monitoring
How To Protect Your Brand From Domain Name Abuse?
Working with domain name monitoring is important. Thousand domain names are registered every day. A fair amount of these registrations are done with the intent to take unfair advantage of someone else’s trademark through impersonation, phishing, or with the intent to profit by selling it to the affected brand owner.
Cybersquatting is perhaps the most common type of abuse and is a pressing reality for generic top-level domains (gTLDs), new gTLDs, and is also a common practice in many ccTLDs, perhaps most notably in China.
Ideally, brand owners should monitor new domain name registrations and take proportionate action against unwanted registrations. Only in this way can brand owners adequately protect their IP, secure revenue and protect customers, employees and partners from potential fraud.
