Beware Domain Name Poachers

We’ve noticed a recent rise in unsolicited third party emails informing clients they have a key Domain name for sale and asking them to respond to negotiate a price. Astonishingly these domains aren’t even registered and should the client respond to this email, the third party will then quickly secure Domains and then re-sell them at an inflated price.

This practice is perfectly legal, but the emails are misleading and take advantage of the fact that some bigger brands find it difficult to maintain a complete view of their Domain portfolio.

A proactive approach to securing the international extensions that are in-line with your online strategy is the core message of our Domain Name Management service. Our dedicated Account Managers are fully aware it can be confusing knowing what extensions should be prioritised. We already manage the domain names of many of our clients that recognise their online brand and customer experience is a priority.

Should you find a domain is registered to a third party and it’s important to your portfolio or in breach of your Intellectual Property rights, we have a recovery team on hand that will advise you as to which options are available to you. Our acquisitions team can handle discrete negotiations with third party registrants and manage the entire process on your behalf.

So keep an eye out for emails that attempt to poach Domains which you could register and help secure your international portfolio.

We can secure all international extensions available and help recover lost domains. For further details please call 0845 363 6173 or arrange a call back.
