TREx

New TLDs

The Trademark Registry Exchange—or TREx—is a service developed by the Trademark Clearinghouse offering trademark owners an additional layer of protection for domain names.

WHAT IS TREx?

Protection de marque en ligne avec la TMCH TRex

The Trademark Clearinghouse—or TMCH—has signed an agreement with individual registry operators who wish to offer an additional layer of protection to trademark owners under their TLDs.

Through the TMCH interface, TREx protection for trademark owners is executed as a single product across a set of different TREx TLDs.

The TRex service is available to owners of a trademark registered with the TMCH. Coverage will increase in phases as the TMCH will continue to enhance the reach of TREx yearly by adding additional TLDs. These will not be limited to new gTLDs but will also include ccTLDs and legacy TLDs.

HOW TREx WORKS

The TREx service is only available for registrations of sunrise-eligible TMCH trademarks registered through a TMCH agent. However, coverage will increase in phases as the TMCH will continue to enhance the reach of TREx yearly by adding additional TLDs. These will not be limited to new gTLDs but will also include ccTLDs and legacy TLDs.

TREx limits the exposure of a brand name that is generally available under certain TLDs. It does not cover names that are already registered when the service is activated. Similarly, it excludes premium names or names reserved for registration by the registry. However, the TMCH will inform you of the applicable coverage before you subscribe to the service.

Characteristics• TREx is a TMCH service that is identical in operation to the DPML Plus system.
• The service must be purchased through a TMCH accredited agent.
• A registered TMCH trademark is required in order to apply for a TREx.
• Extensions may be added at a later date depending on the partnerships concluded with the registries. In this case, a TREx owner can decide to add the TLDs proposed by the TMCH by paying a surcharge, or to continue with the formula until renewal. The new extensions will be automatically included upon renewal and the subscription price will therefore be increased.
