What Is Domain Blocking?
Domain blocking services enable trade mark owners to block their trade mark from registration as a domain in hundreds of domain extensions such as .business, .email and .company. A domain block is a cost-effective and practical solution to protect your brand online and reduce your exposure to domain squatting.
How Does It Work?
A domain blocking service will block third parties from registering a domain that is identical
to your trade mark within the domain extensions managed by that particular registry.
Example: Microsoft can purchase a block for their trade mark ‘Xbox’ which would block third
parties from registering domains such as xbox.games and xbox.technology.
Blocked domains are nonfunctional so it cannot be used for a website or email address and
no ownership information will appear on the WHOIS.
