What is the Domain Name Disputes System?

Part 1: How to Protect my Brand from Cybersquatting?

In order to resolve cases of cybersquatting, ICANN has created a forced system of arbitration for certain domain names. Any dispute that may arise will be guided and governed by the Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy, or UDRP. The UDRP contains the substantive and formal rules of the process.

The process consists in the appointment of a panel of experts that will assess the situation and arguments presented by the parties (complainant or respondent). The domain name dispute process will determine who has legitimate interests over the domain, and if the disputed domain should forcibly be transferred to the complainant or canceled.

At Nominus.com we present our clients’ complaints through the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). The process is fairly quick, usually expanding from one to two months period of time for a complaint to be lodged and finished.

If your rights are being affected by the registration or use of a domain name, we may be able to help you. For reference, the price for Domain Name Dispute Services is US $3900, assuming a maximum of 5 domain names filed in a single dispute, and designating a single member panel of experts.

Why do I need local presence to register some domain extension?

In some countries, such as Brazil and Norway, local presence is a requirement in order to register a domain using the country's ccTLD (country code top level domain). For example, in Norway, you cannot register www.businessname.no if you are not a resident or if your business is not located in Norway. The same rule applies for countries like Brazil. 

I do not meet the local presence requirement? Is there anything I can do?

Yes. Here at Nominus.com, we offer “Local Presence” or Trustee Service. We will make the domain extension name available for you using our local presence. Domain name registration will be processed by our team but you will be the rightful owner and we will issue a certificate of ownership upon request. Please expect additional fees for this service which will be detailed in the search and order form.
