  Starting in January, 2004, ICANN authorized ownership of second level domains

 .Name Defensive Registrations for Brand Owners

Now, ANYONE can file a defensive registration for .name. You no longer need to own a registered trademark to protect a string. Owners of Defensive Registrations get to enjoy use of the domain while controlling access by third parties.

The Defensive Registration is accepted ONLY if there is no existing second-level or third-level registrations for the protected string.

Premium: This is one that provides protection against second level domains as well as third level .name registrations.

> Order a Premium Defensive Registration.

Standard: Blocks both levels of a .name domain where a company name has two parts (for example coca.cola.name) or a product name (like ibm.thinkpad.name). Does NOT protect against the new second level registrations.
