About EnCirca

Welcome to EnCirca, specialists focused on the creation, management and protection of online brands. We believe that domain names are marketing vehicles for trademarks and brand names.

EnCirca is the leading ICANN Registrar for security-conscious domain extensions, including .BANK and .INSURANCE. EnCirca is one of the few ICANN Registrars to complete a SOC 2 Type II Audit, an Independent Service Auditor's Report on Controls Placed in Operation Relevant to the Trust Principles of Security, Availability and Confidentiality. In addition, EnCirca's website receives an A+ in third-party vulnerability scans.

EnCirca has carved a niche in special interest top-level domains, such as .pro, .jobs and .travel. We also have developed unique value-added applications to help brand owners protect and promote their brands online.

  • Trademark Clearinghouse Agent: The Trademark Clearinghouse (TMCH) was created by ICANN as a repository for new Rights Protection Mechanisms covering new Top-Level-Domains (TLD's). All new TLD's will be required to use the TMCH for Trademark Claims and Sunrise Periods. We provide you a complete turn-key service to successfully submit your trademarks to the TMCH and manage them for future Sunrise Periods.

  • Email Authentication Determine whether or not a given message is legitimately from the sender, and what to do if it isn't. Easily identify spam and phishing messages, and keep them out of customers' inboxes.

EnCirca was founded in 2001 by Thomas Barrett near Boston, Massachusetts. Mr. Barrett was previously Vice-President of Thomson & Thomson, a trademark research firm, where he was responsible for the development of the SAEGIS trademark research platform.
