DOG Domain

Dogs are not required to register a DOG domain. However, keep in mind that New gTLDs are subject to the Uniform Domain Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP). In this regard, we recommend avoiding when registering domain names that are similar to well-known Trademarks or consonant with popular sites. Registering a domain similar to an existing Trademark may result in the loss of the domain. A good solution is to come up with a unique domain name that is not similar to others.
