Prior to own a domain name extension and become a Registry, a new TLD applicant to a generic, a community, a geographic, or even, a Trademark has questions:
There are many questions that must be answered prior to considering submitting an application. Round one of the ICANN new gTLD program has shown that applying for a domain name extension was not exactly the same as registering a domain name!
A lot of Trademarks have basic exact same questions about the ICANN new gTLD program and what are the advantages to submit their .BRAND new gTLD application.
We answer these questions in a short study focusing on the client's trademark.
It is important to be able to guide someone who has questions about domain names or who needs specific services such as buying at the right price with the right level of service Changing Registrar can be tricky too, in particular when the domain name portfolio is important. Writing a naming policy is important too with the arrival of new gTLDs.
Corporate (and sometimes Retail) Registrars offer domain name consultancy services and they serve their clients very well actually but there can be a difference when your Consultant doesn't earn money selling domain names. We don't sell domain names.
