“We worked with EDC when we required our social domains. We received very valuable advise in securing domains on all social platforms, so that we to day have secured valuable key domains. EDC did everything from advising us in social domain strategy to require and secure the domains in a very proactive and professionel way. I can recommend everybody to seek advice and to use EDC in handling their social domains and their social domain strategy.”Kristian Bækgaard Online Campaign Manager, Danske Spil A/S
FAQ Quick Answers
What do I have to do to use my domain to send and receive emails?
Please make sure that your domain is using our DNS. We recommend that you create a gmail Account at Google Apps. It is free of cost. Google will send you the DNS settings, and you can add the necessary A-records, MX records and CNAME in DNS administration.
Secure the exclusive rights to your brand in a geographic territory for as little as Eur 185 per year - and be the first in line every time a new top level domain is launched.
Remember when .eu, .co and .asia were made available? With a trademark you could have been the first to apply for the domain names matching your brand.
In Q1 2013 hundreds of new top level domains such as .berlin, .ski, .eco, .paris, .surf, .hotel and many more will see the light of day. You will be the first in line IF you apply before these new top level domains are made public (expected May 2012).
Securing your exlusive rights have of course other benefits as well: Unregistered brands only cause confusion, when it comes to rights. An official trademark will be a strong tool against cybersquatters or competitors using your brand as keyword in their Google Adwords campaign. Furthermore you are allowed to use the registered trademark symbol - ® - in your promo material to show that you are a serious brand.
The cost of the trademark depends on the geographic territory. As an example an EU trademark (OHIM) costs only Eur 1.850,- for a 10 year brand protection. That is Eur 185 per year for all 25 EU countries incl. Germany, France, Spain and the UK.
