Product will cover more domains but cost more money.
Domain name company Rightside is expanding the scope and features of its Domain Protected Marks List (DPML), a service that lets trademark holders block domain names across its portfolio of 40 TLDs. The new service will be available for existing and new customers beginning April 17.
Scott Ryder, VP at Rightside, said the changes are being made after consultation with corporate registrars.
The two biggest changes are that the upgraded service will block premium domains and customers can block 10 variants along with one term. These variants can be typos or IDNs of the term.
For example, Amazon.com could block Amazon, Amozon, Amaz0n, and “Amazon” in IDNs.
Rightside has 40 top level domain names, so one DPML block can cover up to 440 second level domain names. Rightside’s portfolio includes broad terms such as .news, .live, .video and .reviews. Click here to continue reading…
