Try.com is without doubt an ultra-premium domain name, and it seems that the new owners are looking to offer a wide range of services.

Why was TRY.COM applied for as a trademark at the USPTO?

It’s an ongoing trend among owners of generic domain names, following the decision by SCOTUS on the Booking.com trademark application.

Since then, dozens of generic domain names have been applied to be registered as trademarks, inclusive of the TLD. We keep track of these applications, and so far none has been decided upon.

Will these applications become the new norm? Watch this video from NamesCon Online 2020.
