Uni EPS / Uni EPS +

New TLDs

In the first half of 2019, Uniregistry launched its own online brand protection service with its Uniregistry Extended Protection Service, also known as Uni EPS.

WHAT IS UNI EPS?

Protéger sa marque sur Internet avec l'UniEPs d'Uniregistry

Uni EPS allows trademark owners to block terms they have registered with the Trademark Clearinghouse (TMCH) across the entire Uniregistry top-level domain portfolio. The initial offer included all 23 Uniregistry TLDs with a plan to add additional TLDs in the future. However, the registry sold all its portfolio TLDs and thus, 13 new TLD owners decided not to support UNI EPS system.

Only the 10 following TLDs remain protected from June Ist , 2021 : .click, .country, .gift, .help, .hiphop, .hiv, .juegos, .link, .sexy, .tattoo.

The following ones are not supported anymore : .audio, .blackfriday, .christmas, .diet, .flowers, .game, .guitars, .hosting, .lol, .mom, .photo, .pics, .property.

Why sign up for Uni EPS?

Just like online brand protection services such as TREx, DPML or AdultBlock, a Uni EPS block will protect a validated brand across 10 extensions managed by Uniregistry. In other words, this means that no one other than the owner of a trademark can register that specific term in these extensions.

Blocking a term is a much cheaper defensive approach than the actual registration of all domains, especially since the block covers premium domain names. Of course, the trademark owner can unblock a specific domain and start using it at any time.

HOW UNI EPS WORKS

A trademark must be registered with the TMCH (Trademark Clearinghouse) to be eligible for these solutions. Once registered with Uni EPS, all domain names with this trademark will be blocked under all extensions managed by Uniregistry. The initial coverage is 1, 3, 5 or 10 years (also for service renewal), whether for Uni EPS or Uni EPS +. But what is the difference between the two Uni EPS services?
