Africa Registry is an official agent of the clearinghouse - We help submit your trademark to be validated, both prior to and during the launch of new gTLDs.
Once validated you are granted access to participate in every Sunrise period of the new TLDs. This period gives first priority in registration to trademarks.
Registrants are warned when attempting to register your validated trademark name. The Clearinghouse will notify you if infringing registrations are ever completed.
Without access to sunrise periods, you will have to try your luck competing against everyone else for your brand name when each of the thousands of domain extensions reach general availability.
