The Basics

The UDRP (Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy) is the original domain name dispute policy. It was adopted by ICANN (the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) on August 26, 1999. The UDRP applies to domain names ending in the following extensions:

.biz, .cat, .cc, .com, .info, .me, .mobi, .net, .org, .ro, .tel, .travel, .tv, .web, .ws

The UDRP may apply to Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs).

Rules and Fees
Together, the UDRP Rules and the  FORUM's UDRP Supplemental Rules govern disputes falling under the scope of the UDRP.  For cases filed before 07/01/10, please refer to previous versions of our UDRP Supplemental Rules.

The fee schedule for our UDRP domain name dispute services can be found in our UDRP Supplemental Rules, Rule 17 (Fees).
