Domain blocking prevents unauthorised third parties from registering domains that infringe upon your trade mark.
Incorporating domain blocking into your digital strategy safeguards your trade mark from online abuse.
For example, a block on the trade mark “lexsynergy” would prevent unauthorised third parties from registering domains such as lexsynergy.domains and lexsynergy.email.
Blocked domains are non-functional, meaning they cannot be used for a website or email address, and no ownership will appear in a WHOIS search.
Domain blocking is available for a wide range of extensions, from common generics (.business, .company, .email) to high-risk adult entertainment (.adult, .porn, .xxx).
A comprehensive defensive registration strategy is key to preventing abuse online; however, the costs can add up quickly when registering individual domains. The cost of a single domain block is significantly less compared to registering individual domains.
A one-time block protects a trade mark for up to 10 years and results in a single asset to manage rather than hundreds of individual domain registrations.
Many blocking programs will also block variants of your trade mark and IDN’s to expand your protection.
