    Thanks for the link
    Was just asking because WIPO has over 60,000 trademarks for i9 and many relate to computer companies, I own several generic domains that include Apple trademarks and GoDaddy wont list them
    If you set up a site selling i9 laptops doesnt that infringe copyright?

    Might sound strange but most of the .in domains registered in 2005 (the year of .in launch), were registered by German people. Some of them still hold them, the best single word keywords.

    What if the name is registered (and developed) in .de, .at, ch? Does that make .com more attractive to Germans?

    What’s the next best alternative then?

    Say, keywordKeyword.de developed, keyword-keyword.de too.

    What would German look at? Checking .com availability or adding prefixes/suffixes to .de?

    Frank, I meant another company. I understand a German company that sits on .de doesn’t care about .com unless they have global customers.


    Now, assuming a German company is looking for a domain and the keyword combo they want is registered in .de (including dashed version), what you think should be on the mind of this company?

    Going for .com (if available on the aftermarket) or settle on an alternative name in .de (by adding prefix or suffix)?

    We know a US-based company would first look for .com and if unavailable — .net/.org would be on the radar (not .us), and I wonder how German businesses think.

    I bought a few German names in .com, so this is not only curiosity :xf.wink:

    I guess thats greatly depending on the company and the kind of name they like to use
