DPML / DPML Plus

New TLDs

Some registries that manage a large number of these extensions have implemented alternate solutions. Donuts’ DPML (Domain Protected Marks List) is one of them and it covers over 240 TLDs.

WHAT IS THE DONUTS DPML?

Protéger sa marque sur Internet avec Donuts DPML

Protect your brand on the Internet with Donuts’ DPML. DPML is the acronym for Domains Protected Marks List. DPML applies only to extensions sold by Donuts.

This service is only available if you have registered your trademark with the TMCH database. It allows you to block your domain name’s registration with the new extensions constantly entering the market.

This service proactively blocks the registration of all domain names that partially or completely include your brand name. This gives you a truly preventive brand protection strategy, defending your online reputation and protecting your business from possible attacks before they happen.

With DPML, your trademark is entered in the list of non-registrable domain names.

Why sign up for the Donuts DPML?

Since the new extensions were launched in 2012, Donuts has applied for over 300 new gTLDs with the hope of obtaining at least 200: it reached its objective in 2019 as it manages 247 of them.

The DPML services (for Domains Protected Marks List, sometimes called Donuts Protected Marks List) were introduced to allow owners to protect their trademarks (exact name or variants) by blocking the associated domain names in all the TLDs managed by Donuts.

They protect trademark owners against cybersquatting at a lower cost than defensive registrations.

HOW DPML WORKS

A trademark must be registered with the TMCH (Trademark Clearinghouse) to be eligible for these solutions. Once listed in a DPML, all domain names with this trademark will be blocked under all extensions managed by Donuts. The initial coverage is 5 years for DPML and 10 years for DPML Plus, renewable for 1 to 10 years in Donuts’ case. But what is the difference between DPML and DPML Plus?
