While at SXSW, I ran into Howard Greenstein, COO of Domainskate. We got a chance to sit down and talk about protecting your domain’s identity on the web and how Domainskate.com can help in that.
Big name companies have seen this – people try to cash off your idea. For instance, Apple Watch is coming, so there are hundreds trying to get similar domain names so they can try to get some of the massive traffic Apple will see. Therefore, Apple lawyers will be busy on the taking down of those sites.
Domainskate is for the smaller businesses who still have to worry about those posers. You simply enter your domain and the service will start monitoring it. If it sees any suspicious activity, you will get notified.
One of the issues most domain owners see is the email from another country stating they either want to help you by selling the .jp version of your property or that you have infringed on their domain (which is not registered) and you should hand over the name to them. These are scams. Domainskate will help you understand what is going on and how to respond to these accusations.
