The TMCH Service offers

Easier processes for all new gTLD Sunrise phases

In all Sunrise phases, trademark holders can protect their trademarks under the new gTLDs and get preference to register their trademark domains - as long as they meet the requirements of the respective registries. In order to do this, trademark rights must be validated by submitting all relevant trademark data to the TMCH. After the data is checked and verified by Deloitte (Validation Agent commissioned by ICANN), the TMCH Agent creates a so-called SMD file. This file contains all data concerning the trademark and serves as evidence of the required trademark rights. All registries have access to these files and can therefore process the Sunrise applications more efficiently.

Once the trademark data has been stored and validated in the TMCH, the trademark holders can participate in all Sunrise phases of new gTLDs without needing to provide further evidence of trademark rights to apply for domains with their trademarks. This greatly reduces the related administrative effort.

Important note: This does not guarantee the actual allocation of trademark domains. In addition, please note that the respective registry policies apply for domain registrations in all cases.

Keep up-to-date with the Trademark Claims Service

The Trademark Claims Service provides information about potential trademark infringements when domains are registered that correspond with a trademark in the TMCH within the first 90 days of a General Availability. Trademark holders are therefore able to act quickly and can take appropriate action to protect their brands.

The Abused DNL Service (also +50) is an additional Trademark Claims service that helps trademark holders protect labels that have previously been abused and for which they have already prevailed in court or Uniform Domain Name Dispute. Subject to a fee, up to 50 officially confirmed labels at the Trademark Clearinghouse and make use of the Trademark Claims Service for these.

The TMCH Service does NOT offer

Successful domain allocation not guaranteed

The trademark data is checked and validated by TMCH through Deloitte. However, this does not entail the legal right to successful domain allocation.

No protection against brandjacking

Submitting trademark data in the TMCH does not prevent third parties from unlawfully registering new gTLD domains with your trademark. Trademark holders only receive information about such registrations. In order to prevent this, the trademark holder can undertake the appropriate action and register the corresponding trademark domains.

Trademark domains are not blocked

TMCH serves as a database of validated trademark data. The service does not block trademark domains under the new gTLDs. If trademark holders would like to block their trademark domains under selected new gTLDs, "defensive" registrations should be made.
