Domain Name Eligibility Summary

Domain names must correspond to a trademark, trade name or service mark of the entity in bona fide use for the offering of goods or services, or provision of information, in the jurisdiction where the entity is licensed, approved or certified to conduct business. A registered trademark is not required to register a domain name.
