Blog and news
Markify is now adding domain names from all the new gTLDs, as they are being released, to our global Domain Name Watch service. And the price remains the lowest in the industry: $29/year per watched brand.
If you are in the process of evaluating different domain name watch services (sometimes called Brand Monitor, Brand Alert or Domain Monitor), you should know that there two things that set Markify apart:
1. Similar results
We will not only give you identical matches of the brand, but also phonetically identical and phonetically similar results. To our knowledge, no one else does this.
So if you are Pepsi Co and want to be alerted when confusingly similar domain names are being registered, you will get reports with results like this from us:
- PEPSI. de
2. Best price
We believe all brands should be able to afford a domain name watch. And the cost for monitoring your brands at Markify is only $29/year per watched brand.
For this price we will watch your brand in the old (.com, .net, .org etc) and new gTLDs and in more than 200 ccTLDs (.de, .fr, .se, .jp etc).
This low price also means that you can easily monitor hundreds of brands. A lot of trademark attorneys put in their whole portfolio of trademarks into the Markify domain name watch system. Then they offer their clients to monitor the reports for a fee (maybe $200/year). And when there is an infringing domain name, they alert the client and may get new work. A win-win situation.
If you have found a better or cheaper domain name monitor service, please send me an email at benoit at markify.com. Thanks!
In this blog I will mostly write about two subjects:
1. Trademarks, domain names, naming and branding - Four separate areas that often are not that separate.
2. Markify news - Features, markets, pricing, challenges etc.
