Got the .com, Get the .co.com
.co.com has been launched to provide an alternative for those who lost out on securing a .com domain name.
While this new extension provides opportunities, it also creates risks for trade mark owners. It creates a new avenue for squatters to register domain names that match your .com.
It is advisable for trade mark owners to take a proactive stance and protect their trade mark by participating in the Sunrise period.
Registrations for all 3 phases below are accepted on a first come, first served basis.
SMD file issued by the Trademark Clearinghouse (TMCH) is required.
If you have not verified your trademark with the TMCH we can submit it on your behalf. Read more about the TMCH and pricing here.
