What is DPML and how do I apply for one?


The Domain Protected Mark List (DPML) allows trademark holders the ability to block their trademarked names from registration across all of the TLDs supported by a given registry. Currently, DPML is supported by Donuts and Rightside registries.

The trademark holder can submit an exact match (e.g. Example.Ninja) or a term that contains their exact match trademarks (e.g. Microsoft, Google). The entry is then blocked from all registrations on new TLDs for that Registry for a given period of time.

How to Register for a DPML:

In order to register a DPML for a Mark, the Trademark holder must obtain a Signed Marked Data (SMD) file from the Trade Mark Clearing House (TMCH). Any fees associated with TMCH are not covered by the DPML subscription.

Once you have the SMD, you can purchase the DPML for Donuts or Rightside TLDs through eNom.
