Search for domain name
The domain name search is the first and most important step of the domain name allocation process.

Initially search is to be made through previous records by your transmission of your brand which you have considered as domain name. This search will determine whether the domain name that is requested to be allocated has already been registered in the name of another person. With thanks to that, possible risks can be analyzed before the application phase and alternative solutions can be presented by plotting a road map.

If there is no negativity in the search, the application is made by applying and the name of the domain name is provided on your behalf for 1-10 years. If a trademark application is required for the domain name, a trademark application should be made primarily.
