Protect your brand from Cybersquatting

Domain name registrations have increased significantly over the last years. Today, multiple domain names are usually an integral part of a company’s visibility and profile on the internet. Nowadays, it is of supreme importance for companies to protect their brands, product names and trademarks as domain names or risk losing them to competitors, cybersquatters and online criminals.

Cybersquatting is the registration of a domain name misusing a third-party’s brand or trademark with the express intention extorting payment from the legitimate brand owner in order to acquire the name.

Unless you control these domain names, your customers may be redirected to other e-commerce sites, where competing or counterfeit products are sold – diverting revenue away from the legitimate brand owner.

Without access to the right advice and experience, the time and expense required to recover an infringing domain name is prohibitive.

BrandShelter can help protect your brand names from unauthorized use online!
