Protect your domain!

Domain investors and end-users alike operate their digital assets, often wondering: Is my domain name safe?

To protect your domain, this question can only be answered by the following checklist:

  • Use of a dependable, established domain registrar
  • Use of security locks provided by the registrar
  • Current, active contact information on record
  • Financial information (e.g. credit card) on autopay
  • Use of third party alert systems for change notifications
  • Manual check procedures

With all that in mind, it’s not surprising that the mark PROTECT YOUR DOMAIN has been applied for registration at the USPTO. The intent to use application was filed by JRP Global Enterprises LLC.

What *is* surprising, however, is the range of products and services the mark PROTECT YOUR DOMAIN was applied for (partial list:)

3-in-1 organic non-medicated soap bars for use as soap, shampoo and conditioner; Abrasive cleaning preparations; Abrasive paste; Adhesive removers; After shave lotions; After sun creams; After sun moisturisers; After-shave; After-shave balms; After-shave creams; After-shave emulsions; After-shave gel; After-shave liquid; After-shave lotions; After-sun gels; After-sun lotions; After-sun oils; Aftershave; Aftershave cologne; Aftershave moisturising cream; Aftershave preparations; All purpose cleaning preparations; Aloe vera preparations for cosmetic purposes; Anti-aging cleanser; Anti-aging cream; Anti-aging cream containing a retinoic ingredient not for medical purposes; Anti-aging creams; Anti-aging moisturizer; Anti-aging moisturizers used as cosmetics; Anti-aging toner; Anti-wrinkle cream; Anti-wrinkle creams; Argan oil for cosmetic purposes; Aromatic body care products, namely, body lotion, shower gel, cuticle cream, shampoo, conditioner, non-medicated lip balm, soap, body polish, body and foot scrub and non-medicated foot cream; Aromatic essential oils; Aromatic oils; Aromatic oils for the bath; Automobile and car wax preparations; Automobile carpet and upholstery cleaning preparations; Automobile cleaners; Automobile polish; Automobile polishes; Automobile tire cleaning and polishing preparations; Automobile wax; Automobile, tire, glass and wheel cleaning preparations; Automotive cleaning preparations; Bar soap; Bath and shower gels and salts not for medical purposes; Bath cream; Bath creams; Bath oil; BB creams; Beauty balm creams;

The mark’s application for registration as a trademark clearly indicates that the phrase “protect your domain” can be used in a different context, that of one’s area of presence or control.

Once you look clean and smell good, don’t forget to check on your domain name and protect it. 🙂
