Safenames is now offering Domain Protection Marks List (DPML) services. A DPML is a cost effective way to block your trademark(s) from being registered at the second level across many New gTLD extensions. There are two registries providing DPMLs—Donuts and Rightside—and Safenames is offering both.
Why Register A DPML?
DPMLs provide the essential service of protecting trademark holders against cybersquatting at a fraction of the cost of defensively, and individually,
registering domain names across multiple TLDs.
When Should I Register A DPML?
The earlier a DPML block is registered, the more useful it will be. A DPML block does not retroactively rescind third party registration in any New
gTLD that launched prior to a DPML registration (i.e., DPML subscribers will be able to block any names that have not already been registered in those
TLDs). Safenames, along with both registries, recommend securing/registering your place on the DPML as soon as possible, as many New gTLDs have already
launched. Your goal is to ensure the most complete coverage across all New gTLDs.
Donuts applied for 307 New gTLDs and estimates it will operate over 200. See a full list of potential Donuts New gTLDs http://www.donuts.co/site/uploads/2013/05/donuts_tld_application_list.pdf.
Each Donuts DPML subscription applies across all Donuts operated New gTLDs and may not be applied to a subset of Donuts New gTLDs.
Rightside will bring more than 30 New gTLDs to market over the next one to two years.
