Brand protection - GlobalBlock blocking systems

Globalblock protects today, in one single operation, a total of 424 extensions.

Protect its online presence has become a major strategic issue for trademark holders. Seeing the number of extensions, and the perspective of a short term increase of this number, many trademarks struggle to protect effectively their online identity : cybersquatting, phishing... This can damage their reputation and can be potentially very expensive.

In order to offer the largest blocking system, GlobalBlock has joined forces with various generic ( .pro, .info, .email, .llc, etc.) and national registries ( .co, .io, .id, .rw, .co.za, etc.), as well as all of the extensions included in the DPML (Domains Protected Marks List) of Identity Digital.

The Web3 has not been left behind with the following extensions included, at no additional charge, in the GlobalBlock Protection : .888, .altimist, .anime, .binanceus, .bitcoin, .blockchain, .crypto, .dao, .go, .hi, .klever, .kresus, .manga, .nft, .polygon, .unstoppable, .wallet, .x, .zil, .pudgy.
