Trademark clearinghouse (TMCH)

One new development in the sunrise process for new TLDs is the introduction of the TMCH. In order to purchase a domain during the sunrise phase at any registry, a corresponding trademark must be registered in the TMCH first.

Once a trademark is successfully registered, the resulting Signed Mark Data (SMD) file can be used to provide proof of trademark rights for all sunrise orders.

Trademark registrations are available for $220 per year and are available in 1, 3 and 5 year terms. This includes 20 labels, and the Trademark Claims service as well (this notifies trademark holders when a name using their trademark is registered). Additional packages of 20 labels are available for $50 per year, and are also available in 1, 3 and 5 year terms.

New TLDs represent the single biggest change to domain names in over a decade. We’re extremely excited to introduce these to OpenSRS, and look forward to an exciting 2014 filled with many new extensions and ideas.
