DPML, which stands for “Domains Protected Mark List”, is a service offered by Donuts, the largest registry applicant of new generic top level domain name extension (New gTLDs), that allows Trademark holders who have registered their trademark(s) in the Trademark Clearinghouse (TMCH), to block their trademark(s) from being registered at the second level across all Donuts TLDs for an initial period of five years. The DPML also allows brand owners to protect keywords that contain their mark. Donuts applied for 309 extensions and it is expected that they will end up operating approximately 200 domain name extensions.
