The domain name system is a colourful tapestry of 1,600 registries. Some are profit-making run by corporations, open to all. Others are operated by communities with strict eligibility requirements. Many of the country code registries offer registration in both the Roman alphabet and the local language script. You may be able to register for one year or 10 years, for free or a premium, electronically in an instant or only after your trademark has been reviewed.
When you need up-to-date accurate domain data, our Gazetteer of Domain Registries is a great place to start. It’s comprehensive and easy to use.
We cover registration and renewal formalities with links to the registry’s homepage and where you can find rules of eligibility, Whois and DRS details. There’s a Guide to Web 3.0 and blockchain domains, a summary of Blocking Programs, a map from WIPO showing countries that use the UDRP and our view on the path to Round Two of ICANN’s new gTLD program.
If you are a brand owner or an IP professional, a government official or law enforcement representative, the Com Laude Gazetteer of Domain Registries is invaluable.
