Managed Trademark Clearinghouse Submissions

With over 1000 new domain extensions about to significantly change the current domain name system, the Trademark Clearinghouse (TMCH) allow trademark owners a simple yet efficient way to monitor and protect their brands. It is also the only way by which trademark owners can participate in designated Sunrise periods.

Web Solutions is an accredited agent with the Trademark Clearinghouse.

If you opt to utilise our Managed Submissions Service, we will streamline the process of collecting, submitting and managing your trademark data to the TMCH, including declaration of use and proof of use. We will further secure that all associated SMD files (for Sunrise) and labels are included and managed. We will make sure your trademarks are validated by the TMCH, and will finally keep you fully informed about all upcoming events thereafter.

Filing a trademark with the TMCH provides you with the following services and options:

Sunrise service

  • By decree, the launch of each new gTLD will begin with a Sunrise period for trademark holders.
  • Only trademarks registered and fully validated with the TMCH will be able to participate in Sunrise.

Trademark claims service

  • Both during Sunrise and the General Availability phase, third party registrants about to register a domain name which may infringe on your trademark rights will be warned of the existence of your trademark before completing their registration. This will have a preventive effect and will act as an advantage in a potential future dispute.

Why choose Web Solutions for your TMCH submissions?

Our Submission Service is fully managed. In most cases, you will not need to provide any data or documentation (other than signing a declaration form). You will be assigned a dedicated account manager, who will manage every step of the validation process on your behalf.
