Avoiding Domain Name Disputes
Domain names are valuable to a business, but there is a lot of pressure that comes along with securing and protecting a domain name. Each domain name is unique, so businesses may feel pressure to register a domain name first to avoid disputes. Domain name disputes often arise because the Internet has such a broad reach with few boundaries. Over 1,500 registrars to register domain names are available, and each has its own rules and policies for registering.
Way to Protect a Domain Name
In order to avoid a domain name dispute that could drag out and become costly, there are a few ways your business can aim to protect your domain name. These ways include:
- Register common misspellings
- Register the domain name as a trademark
- Purchase new gTLDs and ccTLDs
- Consolidate domains into one company so they can be re-registered together
- Continual monitoring
If a dispute arises, there are options for handling it. A Dallas domain dispute lawyer can help you determine which domain dispute resolution works best for your budget and for your brand.
