Can I transfer my existing domain to Nominus?

Absolutely! At Nominus, we provide a streamlined and hassle-free service for domain transfers, accommodating all Top-Level Domains (TLDs). Our process is meticulously designed to be simple and efficient, ensuring minimal disruptions or delays while transferring your existing domain to our platform. To initiate the transfer process, simply visit our domain transfers page and follow the outlined steps for a smooth transition.

What is the difference between gTLDs and ccTLDs?

Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs) are general, widely-used domain extensions like .com, .net, or .org that are not tied to any specific country or territory. On the other hand, Country Code Top-Level Domains (ccTLDs) are uniquely assigned to individual countries or territories, such as .uk for the United Kingdom or .ca for Canada. These ccTLDs help signify the geographic location or target audience of a website.

Can I redirect web traffic from one domain to another?

Certainly! We offer web traffic redirection from one domain to another at no additional cost. You have access to two types of domain redirection options:

  • Move Permanently (Redirect 301): This option redirects visitors to a different site while displaying the destination address. It's beneficial for maintaining your site's search engine rankings during the transition.

  • Frame Forwarding: With this option, visitors are redirected without being shown the destination address, keeping the redirection process transparent to the user.

Can I create email forwarding for my new domain?

Absolutely! We offer complimentary email forwarding for your new domain. This feature allows you to seamlessly redirect incoming emails to an existing email account of your preference, ensuring you don’t miss critical communications. For each domain, you have the capability to establish up to 5 email forwardings, all at no extra expense.

Do you provide DNS servers?

Yes, we do. A functional domain requires association with at least two DNS servers. If you lack these, we offer them at no extra cost. Our Anycast DNS servers allow you to set up email forwarding, establish web redirection, and manage DNS records efficiently, simplifying your domain's online setup and maintenance.

How long does it take for a domain to be registered?

The registration time for a domain varies depending on its extension. While most domain extensions are registered within minutes, others might require more time due to processing delays at the official registry. For domain extensions that necessitate over 24 hours for registration, pertinent information can be found under the "Registration Requirements" link associated with the specific domain extension.

When can I start using my domain name?

You can begin using your domain name immediately once it is listed as 'Registered' in your account. If the status is 'In Process', please wait until you receive a notification email confirming the registration before initiating any modifications or usage.

Do you offer automatic domain renewal?

Certainly! We provide automatic domain renewal as a default feature for all registered domain names. This ensures your domain is renewed prior to its expiration date without any manual intervention required on your part. Should you wish to opt-out of this feature, simply navigate to “My Domains > Active Domains > [Your Domain] > Settings” and disable the auto-renewal option. Additionally, we’ll send you a reminder notification before the auto-renewal process is initiated, providing you with the opportunity to make changes to the renewal settings if desired.

Trademark Services
What is a trademark?

A trademark distinguishes a company’s offerings from competitors, encompassing not just names but also logos, designs, colors, and sounds. Upon registration, the owner gains exclusive rights to use the trademark for specific products/services within a designated territory for a set term. Symbols include ® for registered trademarks, TM for trademarks pending registration, and SM for service marks in registration process.

Why should I register a trademark for my brand?

Registering a trademark for your brand is a strategic and prudent move as it provides legal protection against unauthorized use of your brand name, logo, or other identifying marks. Trademark registration grants you exclusive rights to use the trademark in connection with the goods or services listed in the registration, preventing others from using similar marks that might confuse consumers.

Is trademark registration mandatory?

While not obligatory, trademark registration is advisable for legal protection. Some countries acknowledge unregistered trademarks but provide limited legal safeguards. Without registration, defending your trademark can be challenging, and others might conduct business under your name, blurring brand distinction. It’s wise to register trademarks where you operate, even if not actively using them. Countries have varying requirements regarding trademark use and registration priority. Registration offers legal security, protecting your unique ideas and business from being exploited in global markets. Ensure to register each necessary trademark following respective guidelines.

How do I search for existing trademarks?

By conducting a thorough search, you can ensure that your desired trademark is unique and registerable.

In what countries should I register my trademark?

  1. Operate or Plan Expansion: Protect your brand where you currently do business or intend to in the future.
  2. Have Significant Online Sales: Consider registration in nations housing major portions of your online customer base.
  3. Manufacture Products: This helps guard against counterfeiting in production locales.

Choose strategically important countries offering strong legal protections for trademarks. For a tailored registration strategy, consider market analysis and legal advice, and explore Nominus.com’s services for international trademark registration assistance.

Can I register my domain as a trademark?

Yes, and it's advisable to protect your brand. Domain names, often synonymous with business names like Amazon.com for Amazon.com Inc., can be trademarked. Registering your domain as a trademark safeguards it and prevents others from securing similar domain names. This process is akin to business name registration but at the domain level, with organizations like ICANN overseeing it. Ensure to register your trademark in the countries where your domain is registered, like your-domain-name.fr in France or your-domain-name.cn in China, to secure market-specific protection.

Do any trademark registrations cover multiple countries?

Each country typically sets its own trademark registration rules and protections. However, there are agreements allowing a single application to register a trademark across multiple jurisdictions. Examples include the European Union Trade Mark (EUTM) used within the EU, and the Benelux Office for Intellectual Property covering Belgium, Luxembourg, and the Netherlands. The Madrid System simplifies global registration through one application, while organizations like the African Intellectual Property Organization offer regional protections. These arrangements facilitate broader trademark protection for owners conducting business in multiple countries or regions.

Who is responsible for granting trademark registration?

The responsibility for approving and granting trademark registration typically lies with the national intellectual property office or trademark office in each country. These governmental or quasi-governmental agencies review applications, ensure compliance with legal requirements, and ultimately grant trademark status. Examples include the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) in the U.S., the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) in the EU, and similar entities in other countries and regions. For international trademarks, systems like the Madrid Protocol allow for centralized filing and management, but the approval still depends on each jurisdiction's respective office.

How long does it take to register a trademark?

The duration of the trademark registration process can vary significantly depending on the jurisdiction in which you are seeking protection. Generally, it takes several months from the filing of the application to the issuance of the registration certificate. During this period, the application undergoes examination, publication, and potential opposition proceedings, all of which can influence the timeline.
