Domain names

Domain names are distinguishing features for your website and are basically composed of the actual domain name (e.g. your brand or trade name) and a so-called top level domain name (TLD), i.e. the extensions like. be. com,. eu, etc.

Since domain names are important for the visibility of your business on the Internet, the value of a domain name is very important.
Entrepreneurs often choose their trade name, brand name(s) or some obvious names (e.g. generic terms) as a domain name to enable internet to find their website the easiest possible way.
Choosing the right domain name and the TLD is important and should already be taken into consideration when starting a new company or creating a new brand.

Brantsandpatents can help you analyse the best way where and how to apply for domain names. We can also investigate the availability of your domain names and take care and manage your domain name registrations. 

Because of the link with trademarks and trade names and the importance of domain names, conflicts often occur. It happens quite often that parties deliberately register trade names or trademarks of another company in order to offer these for sale to that company at exorbitant prices or to damage the competitor's business.  

To claim these domain names, you can rely on Brantsandpatents for the negotiations - anonymous if you wish - or for starting arbitration proceedings.
