Hi,

I have a few ideas for the new mining project and I want to register the domain name for the website.

The problem is that during the last few years there were a lot of scam ICO projects and they used a lot of good domain names.

I want to register .io domain and it is available for registration. But it seems that the other project with same name and different domain zone .net was a scam/HYIP and it is closed for more than one year. According to Google history which I've checked it was not a huge scam, but it leave some tracktion in search results.

Also there was a mining pool with the same name, but different domain zone and it is closed too. But domain name is still taken.

How do you think should I take this name and register .io domain for my project?
Does it matter a domain zone for project?

Thanks

It could be questionable area legally for trademark purposes if they do continue operating under that brand. They could be relaunching a new website you never know. You can see when the domain expires and possible register it/dropcatch it. Or try contacting the whois email and make an offer.

I don't usually recommend building online business on a non .com but IO is popular for startups. In the end almost all successful IO companies usually buy the .com. And it would be a shame to never end up with the .com

We have some mining domains for sale you may be interested in. CoinHasher.com is one in particular, PM me for full list.

Thank you for the detailed reply.

I've tryied to search trademark on USPTO, CTMO, EUIPO websites. There are no any registered trademarks in USA, EU, but it looks like there is one registration request in China with status "Waiting for Acceptance notification sending".

Does it mean that if someone has a registered trademark then I should not register a domain name in any zone (net/org/io/etc)?

I don't usually recommend building online business on a non .com but IO is popular for startups. In the end almost all successful IO companies usually buy the .com. And it would be a shame to never end up with the .com

I know this, but almost all good .com names are already taken by domain squatters and costs a lot of money.

We have some mining domains for sale you may be interested in. CoinHasher.com is one in particular, PM me for full list.

Thanks for your offer, but now I'm trying build a startup from scratch and on personal savings. I'm not able to pay thousands of dollars only for domain name now, whereas I can buy .io domain for 30-40$.

If the name already was burned by a scammer then is a really bad idea to take that name. Because lot of people will avoid the project just because that name under another project means scam.

Get a clean name without a negative behavior, that's the wise way to do it. Start your reputation from zero and build something clean and positive.

Better use another name, because you could end tainted even when it's not your fault... Else you will have to spend energy, time and money for something that isn't your fault in the first place. Is that name worth such trouble?

Technically its not a problem. But you'll have to convince people again, and again and again that you are not related to the former scam.

just think of brands like google
.. what is a 'google'
the brand name has no plain meaning to the word or any distinctive origins

apple.. a tech company named after a fruit.. no explanation

just try a new brand thats more catchy and not so related to its end-purpose

i have heard some weird and wacky idea's in the past.
so if it was a mining related thing. someone jokingly said 'clinker' because of the clinking sound a pickaxe makes when hitting ore

just think how 'clinker.io' might be less boring but more catchy than 'mining.io'

try to be more innovative and elaborate to your idea's of a brand, because sometimes a double meaning, hidden secret, subtle joke brand name sticks in the mind of someone far more than just a standard obvious name

ive heard elon musk is calling his hole drilling company 'boring'

And since they (ICANN?) changed the rules, companies can now use their own names as suffix. They now allow domains that end in .apple or .boring whatever. It might be pointless to go after an specific suffix anymore. I bet, that they are very expensive.

What do you mean no explanation? Of course its explained:

According to Wozniak, Jobs proposed the name “Apple Computer” when he had just come back from Robert Friedland’s All-One Farm in Oregon. Jobs told Walter Isaacson that he was "on one of my fruitarian diets," when he conceived of the name, and thought "it sounded fun, spirited and not intimidating ... plus, it would get us ahead of Atari in the phone book."

To think "the Steves" formed that company, with money from selling "not exactly legal" devices that exploited the bad designed American telephone system... All hail Captain Crunch and the 2600Hz whistle! And yes, Apple was better when it was ran by those phreaks :3

It seems to me that it is not so important which domain you choose. As practice shows, you can use almost any of those that you want to use.

you misunderstand.
like my google example... "apple" the word itself does not explain the product/industry

even you had to look it up, rather than the name being self descriptive

imagine if blockchain (self descriptive: chain of blocks) was called "pink rose". people would not even be able to start to understand what the technology is about based on the name

I think it is important to have a domain for a new project but more importantly the domain being researched and analyzed Because before starting our own business we have to find a lot of rides and ideas It's best to work in groups to avoid scams.
