About DomainSkate

Protecting your business’ online identity can be difficult and complicated.

Bad actors, cybercriminals, and cybersquatters are taking advantage of common online confusion to damage brand reputation, steal information, redirect traffic, and make money. They can target your domain name or social media ID, or even your brand name and trademarks–the elements of your “brand identity.”

DomainSkate is a brand identity protection firm, created by an intellectual property lawyer with extensive experience in protecting brands online, as well as a team of experienced technologists. Our system lets you monitor how your brand name and domain are being used online, manage any potential problems, and quickly fix any issues. We review over 270 million domain names every day for our clients, provide critical information about each domain, and archive it–giving you the evidence you need to take down cybersquatters. We also track trademarks and social media IDs in a unique and effective way.

Don’t leave your most important brand assets exposed. Let DomainSkate protect your brand’s identity–the core of your business–online.
