You’ve built your business, but it’s not time to rest on your laurels. Your brand – and your reputation – is your most valuable business asset. It’s time to protect it from phishing, domain hijacking, and copyright infringement. Protect it with DPML offered by Blacknight.
The Domains Protected Marks List is a service on offer from Donuts Inc, the registry behind 241 generic top-level domain names (gTLDs). By signing up, you prevent your trademarked brand name from being registered across the entire portfolio of Donuts Inc domain names.
Buying DPML service protects your valuable brand from cybersquatters, hackers, phishers and anyone seeking to do harm to your business. It’s also a more affordable way to secure these domains than registering them all individually.
