London, UK (PRWEB) June 11, 2004
For Immediate Release: The .TM domain name space (http://www.Domain.TM) is a great opportunity to take advantage of the growth in Internet addresses usage, both for companies with trademarks, individuals willing to use domain names in their own language or certified professionals all over the world.
"The increase in Registration of Internet addresses worldwide proves that people are looking more and more to promote their products and ideas on the Internet. But between nearly crowded extensions and restrictive spaces, customers have a hard time to make up their minds. That's where a meaningful extension available to anyone like .TM is really useful" comments Jean-Christophe Vignes, Registry Liaison Manager at the .TM Domain Registry ".TM is a recognized acronym all over the world, yet the extension can be used for many purposes, without any special plug-in or policy, indeed, it works just like a .com but with quite a few advantages".
Contrary to other Registries, .TM believes that anyone should be able to register the domain they want, without any consideration of residence, profession or nationality. That is why the .TM space is operated on a first come first served basis and welcomes everyone: if the domain name is not already registered, anyone can get it. This is also a great way to protect trademarks or trade names used on the Internet, all it takes is filling a form on http://www.Secure.TM !
.TM Domains rely on proven Internet standards and work without any additional plug-in or modification to the Domain Name System. Understandable immediately and still relatively young on the market, a .TM name can be composed of an easy-to-remember short string, or of a total creation, even in a specific foreign script. Users in China, Denmark and Russia are already using .TM names to express themselves in their own language on the Internet, but because .TM support of International Domain Names (IDNs) is standard-based, all combinations of scripts worldwide become potential Domain Names: Arabic, Japanese, Korean and Czech to name a few are already represented in the .TM space. Anyone can register and find more information on http://www.nic.TM/IDN.html
"From the start, we have developed .TM to become an efficient e-commerce tool" adds Vignes "far more than a COMmon web address, the extension is conceived to fight SPAM and boost brand recognition and protection on the Internet". Indeed, the Registry is the first to have launched a global operation against unsolicited bulk e-mail: thanks to the SPF community project, any .TM registrant can be effectively protected against thousands of SPAM mails a day. Moreover, with its unprecedented 10-years registration period, .TM Registrants make sure their online asset is safe and will be recognized for a far longer time than in any other name space. The relationships the Registry has built with several Web Designers and Trademark agents are also a perfect way for companies and individuals alike to "build an online brand" that lasts.
Whether it is to create its web identity for individuals or pros, or simply to protect one's trademark, .TM is the perfect choice to get exposure on the WebÂ http://www.Get.TM !
.TM names are already used by more than a third of the world's 100 most well known brands. The .TM name space is significantly more valuable than the more COMmon ones thanks to 10-years Registration policy co-developed with the World Intellectual Property Organization (UN treaty based organization for the promotion and protection of Intellectual Property) to fight cyber squatting. Fortune 500 companies such as Rolex, Chanel, Google and Microsoft use .TM domain Registry, a proud member of the International Trademark Association (INTA), to build consumer confidence and further brand recognition. http://www.Domain.TM
