EnCirca is now accepting orders from trademark owners for the Donuts’ Domains Protected Marks List (DPML).
DPML is a blocking service that covers all of the Donuts’ operated top-level-domains. Trademark owners can protect any string that contains their brand, such as “nikeshoes”
Donuts has applied for 307 TLD’s with half of these uncontested. Also, as of today, Donuts has signed nearly half of the Registry contracts with ICANN. DPML is a great value for trademark owners, with the annual cost per TLD ranging from $2 to $3 per domain name protected.
A pre-requisite for DPML is a Signed-Mark-Data (SMD) file issued by the Trademark Clearinghouse. For more information, visit EnCirca’s DPML Page
