The DPML was initially introduced by the TLD operator Donuts, covering over 200 TLDs.
The DPML blocks a domain name matching a verified trade mark or term across all Donuts' TLDs. We blogged about this service towards the end of last year, read the blog post here.
The service has now also been introduced by Rightside, the operator of the following TLDs:
An annual fee of £230 or $391 will block your mark in the above TLDs.
The cost of blocking your mark is cheaper than registering your domain name during the Sunrise and Landrush phases of each TLD.
You must have a validated trade mark with the TMCH in order to submit a DPML block.
Contact us to validate your trade mark and submit your block.
