Protect your brand from Cybersquatting

Domain names have gained ground significantly over the last years. Today, they are an integral part of a company and its public appearance. Thus, it is of great importance for companies to protect their brands and trademarks as domain names.

Cybersquatting is the registration of a domain name, which is not allowed to registrant because it violates, for example, trademark rights.

With these domains, your customers may be redirected to other sites, where they increase their revenue – at your expense. A subsequent legal dispute about a "typo-domain" may be costly and time consuming.

Protect your brand name from unauthorized use!
