Right Of The Dot™, LLC introduces Contention Resolution Service for new gTLD applicants who have applied for the same or confusingly similar domain name extension as other applicants. Right Of The Dot™, LLC is an Internet consulting firm specializing in advising existing and new TLD registries how to maximize revenue, increase registrations and market share including board advisement, marketing, premium domain and market positioning, sales, and services. The domain name experts at RightOfTheDot.com will help you navigate and understand the changing landscape of the web by negotiating on behalf of new gTLD applicants with disputed strings.
The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) announced they will be creating new generic top level domains (gTLDs). Over the next several years it is estimated that hundreds or even thousands of new extensions will be applied for and approved. The first string of applications were submitted earlier this year and, “now that ICANN just made the ‘Big Reveal’, publishing the first round of the applicants for a new gTLD and the specific extensions that were applied for by each, there are over 1,900 applications and 751 are in direct conflict, meaning more than one applicant for those specific extensions,” states Michael Berkens, Esq., Co-Founder, Right Of The Dot™, LLC .
What does a company do if they find out that another company or organization has applied for the same gTLD as they have? Under the ICANN Guidebook, parties are encouraged to work together to solve any contention privately otherwise the string will go to an auction. Some have predicted that auction prices for contest new gTLD extensions could easily exceed $10 Million dollars. The seasoned domain name professionals at Right Of The Dot™, LLC have 29 years combined experience in the domain name business are uniquely positioned to advise and negotiate for companies to achieve the best outcome for contended new domain names to avoid costly auctions.

If your new gTLD is one of the hundreds in contention, let RightOFTheDot.com help you by bringing the applicants together to resolve the strings rather than going to auction.
