Beware of Dot Pl Domain Expirations – Uwa┼╝aj na wyga┼Ťni─Öcie domeny kropka Pl

A domain typically enters Redemption about 45 days after its expiration date if it is not renewed or purchased by a 3rd party. However, certain top-level domains may enter redemption status the day after the domain’s expiration date.

Today I go to renew a domain name with the domain extension .pl it expires on the 6th of February and the renewal fee was bumped up by an “internal redemption fee” even though it has not expired. So as you can imagine I phoned Godaddy and they explained that POLAND has a rule that if you do not renew your domains before 14 days of the expiration date they will charge ┬ú45.63 + VAT on top of the price of the domain name because according to them the domain goes into redemption.

Excuse me but am I missing something, redemption should start from the day the domain expires not 14 days before.

“Poland Registry is a bunch of thieves”.

I am now going to let the domain drop completely and notify my other registrar to drop-catch it. No way am I going to pay these scammers a penny more than what the domain is worth.

For the liberty of the Polish scammers, I have translated this post for their benefit.

Polish Translation

Domena zazwyczaj przechodzi do Odkupienia oko┼éo 45 dni po dacie wyga┼Ťni─Öcia, je┼Ťli nie zostanie odnowiona lub zakupiona przez stron─Ö trzeci─ů . Jednak niekt├│re domeny najwy┼╝szego poziomu mog─ů uzyska─ç status wykupu nast─Öpnego dnia po dacie wyga┼Ťni─Öcia domeny.

Dzisiaj id─Ö odnowi─ç nazw─Ö domeny z rozszerzeniem domeny .pl, kt├│ra wygasa 6 lutego, a op┼éata za odnowienie zosta┼éa powi─Ökszona o ÔÇ×op┼éat─Ö za wykup wewn─ÖtrznyÔÇŁ, mimo ┼╝e nie wygas┼éa. Wi─Öc jak mo┼╝esz sobie wyobrazi─ç, zadzwoni┼éam do Godaddy i wyja┼Ťnili mi, ┼╝e POLSKA ma zasad─Ö, ┼╝e je┼Ťli nie odnowisz domeny przed up┼éywem 14 dni od daty wyga┼Ťni─Öcia, do ceny nazwy domeny dolicz─ů ┬ú45.63 + VAT, poniewa┼╝ zgodnie z im domena przechodzi do odkupienia.

Przepraszam, ale czy co┼Ť przegapi┼éam, odkupienie powinno rozpocz─ů─ç si─Ö od dnia wyga┼Ťni─Öcia domeny, a nie 14 dni wcze┼Ťniej.

UPDATE 02/02/23 – AKTUALIZACJA 02.02.23

I emailed ICANN yesterday and you can view the response below both in English & Polish. I also emailed the Polish Registry (NASKA) similar to the UK version of NOMINET and you can read the response which I have translated. It seems to me that Godaddy is saying this redemption fee has nothing to do with them, ICANN is saying the same and the Polish registry also is saying it has nothing to do with them.

The mind boggles.

Nask Translation into English – Nask T┼éumaczenie na j─Özyk angielski:

Dear Sir/Madam,

I kindly inform you that the entity named “GoDaddy” is not a partner of NASK in the field of .pl domain registration, which can be verified on the list of registrars available at https://dns.pl/lista_rejestratorow and we do not comment on the services it provides.

All questions regarding the concluded contract, domain renewal, and payments should be addressed directly to the domain registrar, whose details can be checked in the whois database at www.dns.pl.

I invite you to familiarize yourself with the .pl domain life cycle, which is available at https://dns.pl/cykl_zycia_domeny_pl – (Which returns a 404-page error).

IONOS - Official Partner

Avoid buying country code (.PL) domain extensions unless you plan to renew them well in advance, although it cannot be 61 days earlier than expiration or 14 days later of auto-renewal. If auto-renewal fails the domain gets canceled.

Stick with dot com, which I have done, and will sue anyone if my domain Polish version drops and cannot be drop caught by me with a different registrar.

Translated into Polish

Je┼Ťli automatyczne odnawianie si─Ö nie powiedzie, domena zostanie anulowana.

Kup si─Ö dot com, co zrobi┼éam, i pozw─Ö ka┼╝dego, je┼Ťli moja polska wersja domeny spadnie i nie b─Öd─Ö m├│g┼é zosta─ç z┼éapany przez innego rejestratora.

This Saga is not over I will update you when I have more news from Nask – Ta Saga si─Ö nie sko┼äczy┼éa. Poinformuj─Ö Ci─Ö, gdy b─Öd─Ö mia┼é wi─Öcej wiadomo┼Ťci od Nask.

Update 03/02/23

I received an email from Nask today and this is what the representative wrote translated into English:

Madam,

According to the information available in the whois database at www.dns.pl. The domain registry xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.pl is the company: 1API GmbH, Im Oberen Werk 1, 66386 St. Ingbert Germany/Germany, tel: +49.68949396850, e-mail: info@1api.net, and the subscriber is RENATA xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxCARDIFF, GB, +xxxxxxxxxxxxxx. NASK, as the .pl domain Registry, does not directly service domains for registrants, which results from the provisions of the Regulations for .pl domain names. Such service is provided only by our partners, appearing on the list available at: https://dns.pl/lista_rejestratorow.

All issues regarding the concluded agreement, including billing/fees, should be clarified between the registrant and the domain registrar. NASK does not impose on partners the fees charged for services provided by them directly to subscribers.

According to the information published in the whois database on the website www.dns.pl, the end of the paid billing period for the xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx domain falls on 2023.02.06 19:26:44. (seems a bit of a coincidence my domain disappeared when I gave them the name of the domain, I cannot renew even if I wanted to).

In order to renew a domain, its registrant should follow the procedure of an authorized registrar. If the domain registrant cares about its uninterrupted operation, he should renew it with his registrar before the end of the paid billing period, taking into account the deadlines necessary for posting the payment, etc.

If the subscriber fails to act before the end of the paid billing period, the domain will go into a 30-day “blocked” state (after the end of the billing period), in accordance with the domain life cycle available at: https://www.dns.pl/cykl_zycia_domeny_pl.

In this state, the registrant may renew the domain at the current registrar or transfer it to another NASK partner with simultaneous renewal, provided that he has the auth info code for the domain. Failure to do so will result in releasing the domain to the pool of free domains (after its expiry from the “blocked” status) and making it available for re-registration to all interested parties, on general terms (“first come, first served”).

Again, I would like to inform you that NASK does not cooperate with an entity called “GoDaddy”, which can be verified at https://www.dns.pl/lista_rejestratorow and does not comment on its activities.

Sincerely

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Godaddy Update 03/02/23

Upon going back to see if Nask had dropped the redemption fee, my domain has disappeared. So even if I wanted to renew with the scamming fee I am unable to do so. I will start a UDRP on anyone that registers the domain name as I have the dot com version. I have secured the dot com version of the domain in question but this is not the last NASK will hear from me… I am now going to up the stakes and enforce they give me all the data they have on all my (.PL) domain names, just like I can get all the data of all my (.co.uk) domains by logging into my Nominet account.

Po powrocie, aby sprawdzi─ç, czy Nask zrezygnowa┼é z op┼éaty za wykup, moja domena znikn─Ö┼éa. Wi─Öc nawet gdybym chcia┼éa odnowi─ç z op┼éat─ů za oszustwo, nie mog─Ö tego zrobi─ç. Uruchomi─Ö UDRP na ka┼╝dym, kto zarejestruje nazw─Ö domeny, poniewa┼╝ mam wersj─Ö dot com. Zabezpieczy┼éam wersj─Ö dot com domeny, o kt├│rej mowa, ale to nie jest ostatnia wiadomo┼Ť─ç, jak─ů NASK ode mnie otrzymaÔÇŽ Teraz podnios─Ö stawk─Ö i wymu┼Ť, aby przekazali mi wszystkie dane, kt├│re maj─ů na wszystkich moich (.PL ) nazw domen, tak jak mog─Ö uzyska─ç wszystkie dane wszystkich moich domen (.co.uk), loguj─ůc si─Ö na moje konto Nominet.

Godaddy Update 04/02/23

I headed back to Godaddy today and for some strange reason, the domain found itself back in my account. Could it be a coincidence that I have connected with most of the staff in Nask on LinkedIn? Well, the redemption fee is still there and I guess I will just have to drop the domain and register it once it becomes available.

Wr├│ci┼éam dzisiaj do Godaddy iz jakiego┼Ť dziwnego powodu domena znalaz┼éa si─Ö z powrotem na moim koncie. Czy to przypadek, ┼╝e z wi─Ökszo┼Ťci─ů pracownik├│w Nask po┼é─ůczya┼éam si─Ö na LinkedIn? C├│┼╝, op┼éata za wykup nadal obowi─ůzuje i chyba b─Öd─Ö musia┼éa po prostu zrezygnowa─ç z domeny i zarejestrowa─ç j─ů, gdy tylko stanie si─Ö dost─Öpna.

One thing I am glad about my article is the first search result on the first page of all search engines in a matter of a few days. This shows how good I am with my SEO and marketing.

Jedna rzecz, z kt├│rej ciesz─Ö si─Ö z mojego artyku┼éu, to pierwszy wynik wyszukiwania na pierwszej stronie wszystkich wyszukiwarek w ci─ůgu kilku dni. To pokazuje, jak dobra jestem w SEO i marketingu.

Typos & Domain Names

Typos & Domain Names!
Keep your business moving forward

Typos and Domain Names.

Typos, everyone does them, and depending on what it is you are writing is what will affect the final outcome. If it is a simple text or informal letter people are understanding and with a little banter will soon forget it, but if you have to write a business document or an article, typos can be deemed as unprofessional.

Nowadays you have software that highlights the misspelled words, as I have for all my WordPress sites. But when it comes to editing images Photoshop and Grammarly do not seem to work together.

Someone such as myself suffers from cognitive impairment because of my diagnosed cerebellar atrophy, I sometimes muddle my words or omit them entirely out of sentences even though I am adamant that I had recited the entire sentence in my head but what results looks nothing like what I wrote.

By coincidence this week I had a ding dong with a marketing competitor on Linkedin who pointed out a typo for a local pizza guy domain name. I wrote about this to air my opinion on my other site: https://marketingagency.cymrumarketing.com/2022/04/26/disagreeing-with-your-competitor/

Typos won’t ruin you but can be costly.

When you have for example merchandise or advertising banners as in the case of the ‘Pizza Guy’ one cannot go back and complain when the typo was in plain sight before it went to the printers. I keep referring to the pizza guy who had the letters SH#T in his pizza domain name. This is similar to Gerald Ratner saying the word CR#P about his jewelry not in good light, only to lose his millions literally overnight.

https://www.theguardian.com/business/2009/mar/07/gerald-ratner-interview

Geralds’s Famous Last Words “Total Cr#p”, cost him his business.

Mistakes Can Be Costly!

Depending on the situation and typo that has occurred will determine the death of your marketing campaign.

As I said before I suffer from cerebellar atrophy and cognitive impairment and similarly to dyslexia, I can see the word in front of me and in my head it looks correct but in reality it is wrong.

So when I did my marketing campaign on Linkedin and shared it with all the social media channels it was only after I had slept on it and shared it again that I noticed many typos.

I was promoting a portfolio of domain names and it cost me a lot of views.

The thing was once you upload it to LinkedIn I could not find a way to edit and replace the image without deleting the post and starting over.

As a consequence, it cost me my time and possibly any potential inquiries because I had misspelled the domain extensions.

The problem was I was editing in Photoshop and although I have Grammarly, it does not work on Photoshop so did not pick up the error and my proofreader by coincidence is away this weekend.

I literally wanted to cry”.

For content that has a short life, a typo might hurt or harm engagement temporarily if one can rectify the typo quickly.

However, if you are registering domain names and you misspell your domain after it has gone through checkout, you are then left with a worthless domain and a few dollars/pounds lighter in your pocket for not noticing the error. Yes, I am guilty of this also and I sometimes do not have a proofreader on hand when I spontaneously buy domain names.

A typo can hurt your brand if you have paid for all the marketing, advertising, and merchandise branding. If the public gets wind of the typo they will laugh at the error just as they laughed at “Gerald Ratner’s” joke about a prawn sandwich lasting longer than his jewelry, but the damage has was done and in the case of Gerald somewhat 30 years later his mistake is still talked about.

Spelling and grammatical errors or in the case of the pizza guy someone thinking it funny to share a photo of a market stall with the domain name, highlighting the letters, and then sharing it across social media was done in bad taste (no pun intended).

This PR stunt made by a marketing company in the same city I am from would have gained a few clicks but because the marketing agency did not link the pizza guys’ business and only shared the image showed me they were not marketing the company and only taking the p#ss for their own advantage.

If they had used their two penneth they could have reached out to him with another domain name. He would still use his business name as the slogan or tagline but have a shorter domain that people would not laugh at.

Mistakes such as audible innuendos or typos can make your company look unprofessional and drive potential customers away.

The definition of a typo.

The definition of a typo is a typographical error made either handwritten, typed on a computer, or printed in the form of a word document, image (infographic), or branding. It can also be a spelling error in the domain name.

Are typos a big deal? Depending if the typo is a massive advertising branding campaign rather than an informal note, email, or text message will determine if the error can be rectified without costing the company money and losing credibility.

I always tell people every opportunity I get about cerebellar atrophy which I try to educate people about. I have got a mini bio on most of my about me pages that I suffer from this and how it affects my life.

If you do not have a proofreader you can usually find someone on Fiverr providing you are not in a hurry as I was yesterday posting my article which I now have a problem rectifying. Hopefully, people will visit the link within my article and will see the amendment. It is time-consuming, frustrating, and disheartening knowing you have made all this effort only to spot a typo a few hours later.

Here is the rectified image, if you compare it to the LinkedIn post you will see the difference, not that it matters now, we are only human after all.

Rejestrator domen polskich -(Polish Domain Registrar)

Polish Country Code Domain Extension – Rozszerzenie domeny polskiego kodu kraju

Godaddy & Polish Domain Registrars are on my radar today.

I have multiple Polish Domains Renewing in February, my domains auto-renew is off so you can imagine the shock when domains that were due for renewal in February get renewed even though I had no intention of renewing them.

Obviously, I phoned Godaddy to complain and was told Polish Domain Registrars take payment for Domain Names 3 weeks ahead of the renewal date unlike dot coms or other TLDs, but he could not explain why the domains were renewed even though the auto-renew was not set.

He proceeded to issue me a refund and when I asked will I get the payment back the same day he said yes.

I waited a couple of hours and my bank account did not show any refund so I phoned Godaddy again and was told I had to wait 3 – 10 working days to get my money back.

Now I am a business owner and I use e-commerce payment gateways all the time and I can issue refunds the same day but this agent was being difficult and saying he will not assist me.

Godaddy is a gorilla of a company so you would think they would be able to issue refunds the same day.

As for Polish Registrars, I feel they should do what the rest of the world is doing and not set rules differently, assuming Godaddy has not just taken the payment early.

I responded and said Godaddy should make their consumers know and have something on their website to say that some countries will take payment 3-4 weeks ahead of the renewal date…there was utter silence after that.

What other registrar renews a domain name 3 weeks ahead of schedule? It would be interesting to know other people’s experiences from other countries.

Do let us know in the comments if other countries are doing the same.

I do not have a good word to say about Poland even though my parents were Polish and I have dual nationality. The only reason I have the domain names in question is that I have Polish clients. The Polish Registrar will get paid on the day of renewal and not a day sooner.

I have taken the liberty of translating this post into Polish to make it easier for Polish people to read even though I do have a translator on my site.

GoDaddy i rejestratorzy domen polskich s─ů dzi┼Ť na moim radarze.

Mam wiele odnowie┼ä domen polskich w lutym, automatyczne odnawianie moich domen jest wy┼é─ůczone, wi─Öc mo┼╝esz sobie wyobrazi─ç szok, gdy domeny, kt├│re mia┼éy zosta─ç odnowione w lutym, zostan─ů odnowione, mimo ┼╝e nie mia┼éAm zamiaru ich odnawia─ç.

Oczywi┼Ťcie zadzwoni┼éam do GoDaddy, aby z┼éo┼╝y─ç skarg─Ö i powiedziano mi, ┼╝e polscy rejestratorzy domen pobieraj─ů p┼éatno┼Ťci za nazwy domen 3 tygodnie przed dat─ů odnowienia, w przeciwie┼ästwie do dot coms lub innych TLD, ale nie potrafi┼é wyja┼Ťni─ç, dlaczego domeny zosta┼éy odnowione, mimo ┼╝e automatyczne odnowienie nie nast─ůpi┼éo ustawi─ç.

Przyst─ůpi┼é do zwrotu pieni─Ödzy, a kiedy zapyta┼éem, czy otrzymam zwrot pieni─Ödzy tego samego dnia, powiedzia┼é tak.

Czeka┼éam kilka godzin, a moje konto bankowe nie wykaza┼éo ┼╝adnego zwrotu, wi─Öc ponownie zadzwoni┼éem do GoDaddy i powiedziano mi, ┼╝e musz─Ö poczeka─ç od 3 do 10 dni roboczych, aby odzyska─ç pieni─ůdze.

Teraz jestem w┼éa┼Ťcicielkam firmy i ca┼éy czas korzystam z bramek p┼éatno┼Ťci e-commerce i mog─Ö wyda─ç zwroty tego samego dnia, ale ten agent by┼é trudny i powiedzia┼é, ┼╝e mi nie pomo┼╝e.

Godaddy jest gorylem firmy, wi─Öc mo┼╝na by pomy┼Ťle─ç, ┼╝e b─Öd─ů w stanie dokona─ç zwrotu tego samego dnia.

Je┼Ťli chodzi o polskich rejestrator├│w, uwa┼╝am, ┼╝e powinni robi─ç to, co robi reszta ┼Ťwiata, a nie inaczej ustala─ç zasady, zak┼éadaj─ůc, ┼╝e GoDaddy nie przyj─ů┼é p┼éatno┼Ťci przedwcze┼Ťnie.

Odpowiedzia┼éam i powiedzia┼éam, ┼╝e GoDaddy powinien poinformowa─ç swoich konsument├│w i mie─ç co┼Ť na swojej stronie internetowej, aby powiedzie─ç, ┼╝e niekt├│re kraje wezm─ů p┼éatno┼Ť─ç 3-4 tygodnie przed dat─ů odnowieniaÔÇŽ po tym nast─ůpi┼éa zupe┼éna cisza.

Jaki inny rejestrator odnawia nazw─Ö domeny 3 tygodnie przed terminem? Interesuj─ůce by┼éoby poznanie do┼Ťwiadcze┼ä innych ludzi z innych kraj├│w.

Daj nam zna─ç w komentarzach, je┼Ťli inne kraje robi─ů to samo.

Nie mam dobrego s┼éowa do powiedzenia o Polsce, mimo ┼╝e moi rodzice byli Polakami, a ja mam podw├│jne obywatelstwo. Jedynym powodem, dla kt├│rego mam przedmiotowe nazwy domen, jest to, ┼╝e mam polskich klient├│w. Polski rejestrator otrzyma wyp┼éat─Ö w dniu odnowienia, a nie dzie┼ä wcze┼Ťniej.

Raczyna (raczyna.com)

www.raczyna.com and www.raczyna.pl

R─ůczyna (www.raczyna.pl & www.raczyna.com) is a village in the administrative district of Gmina Ka┼äczuga, within Przeworsk County, Subcarpathian Voivodeship, in south-eastern Poland. It lies approximately 10 kilometers south of Ka┼äczuga, 18 km south of Przeworsk, and 35 km east of the regional capital Rzesz├│w.

R─ůczyna is also where my mother was born and where I spent a few summers. I still have family there but due to a family feud, we have broken all contact. My family are heartless, cold-hearted people who have no empathy.

Originally when I registered the dot com and dot pl versions of the domain my initial thoughts were to build bridges between my family and myself and I wanted to make the site into a “Real Estate” and “CBD directory”.

I wanted to grow CBD on the land that my Aunt manipulated in court from my deceased mother and I would have invested in the saplings, licenses, etc.

“I have now washed my hands from them all including all the Cichons, Wojdylos, and Kuznirs, they are no longer my family and if I were ever to see them again I would never acknowledge them They had their chance to reconcile but chose not to. This is not how you treat your own flesh and blood”.

This is similar to a domain owner leasing the domain and then the person leasing demanding they own the domain name. It is called reverse hijacking. Obviously, the laws are different in the UK and USA but the more Eastern European countries are more corrupt.

I have written a full post about what happened for my family to read. https://marketingagency.cymrumarketing.com/2020/09/01/reconciling/

I did all the research and got connected with some investors and everything was going to plan until my Aunt “Zofia Wojdylo” said in court that because she had paid all the taxes on a dead man’s name (my grandfather Kazimierz Machaj ), she was entitled to the land even though she never paid my mother any income from the proceeds.

The land was left to my mother in a will by my grandmother (Anna Machaj) and I have a copy of the will.

Last Will & Testament of My Grandparents to my Mother (Address Redacted).

The court costs were astronomical and even though I did a deal with a solicitor to build her a website, I came to the decision to not pursue the CBD project any longer because of the court costs, but instead construct a website and make sure when CBD does become a thing in Raczyna, that my cousin and any other member of the family does not have any help from me or get any promotion or marketing considering I own the domain names.

Besides, even if I had won the land I would have to work it and my family would not help me, so decided on a master plan that will cost more than the actual land itself… Karma!

My cousin “Artur Wojdylo” said it was illegal to grow CBD in Poland even though I had done all the research, as a businesswoman so I would think I know better!

What does he know about business? he is just a laborer, farmer and that’s what he will ever be, considering he declined my offer.

My offer was for my Aunt to keep the deeds so long as I could grow hemp alongside their other crops and I would supply everything at no cost to them.

I drummed it into my cousin’s head that I would buy the license and fund everything, all I needed was the land to grow the hemp. He then replied sarcastically I should go and buy some land if that was the case. I told him I could make him really rich, again offering an olive branch to make amends…

There is no reasoning with stupid people and it is his loss at the end of the day, that is how I see it and how the rest of the world will see it as I will never help that family.

I cannot see myself visiting that region again for the foreseeable future. My gut feeling is telling me not to sell the domain, and see what happens. I have in fact just taken them off the market. I am finding I have not got enough hours in the day to pursue the projects, so will leave it on the back burner for now.

This would be an ideal project to pursue CBD growing in Poland and even invest in the business. I will just keep hold of it for now and see what will transpire.

Town & Village Domain Names.

https://www.raczyna.pl and https://www.raczyna.com

Raczyna.PL & Dot Com

I wrote a post a while back about Sovereign Domain Names over Iceland the Country trying to sue Iceland the Grocery Chain in the UK.

However moving on I acquired two domain names from where my mother was born in R─ůczyna (Raczyna.com & Raczyna.pl) in Poland, which I have since developed.

Now I have in the back of my mind slight anxiety because I know how crazy this country Poland is and I have seen firsthand how they demand things, similar to the the Royals in UAE.

Upon doing some research it is apparent that town and village domain names cannot be trademarked, unlike country domain names which in theory cannot be registered as they are part of the sovereign state. This means the Country Name alone cannot be registered and has to have a second or third keyword after it e.g.: ‘UK Domain Brokers’ or ‘UK Website Designers’.

So even though I have recently dropped some ‘Neom’ Keyword domain names I am now feeling slightly apprehensive because the Polish domain names are part of a blog to expand my personal branding and services, but also to teach local farmers about hemp cultivation and CBD products.

So you’re thinking why I am getting myself into a bit of a pickle is because the village ‘R─ůczyna’ has most of my family living there and because of an ongoing family feud I also wanted to let the whole village know what type of people my family are.

I have tried twice to offer an olive branch to make peace and both times was told they were not interested in making amends. So without mentioning their names, the villagers will put two and two together and will know who I am as news travels fast amongst villagers.

I have purposely not mentioned their names but have put the article under ‘R─ůczyna News’, Not only that I plan to write an autobiography to include how they have treated my daughter and I. Basically to cut a long story short my Aunt has scammed her way into taking land that rightfully belonged to my mother. My proposal was that they could have the land as long as they started growing hemp. However, my cousin said it was illegal to grow hemp which in the blog I have proved him wrong. I told him if he did not want to work with me I would make sure he would never be able to sell his produce should he change his mind.

So even if they did not use their real names in applying for investments they would surely be found out once they sign written commission agreements which would require a sworn affidavit.

So either way my family bridges have been burnt and to think all I wanted was a public apology from my cousin’s mother and his wife.

If You want to read about it here is the link: https://raczyna.pl/renata-chciala-publicznych-przeprosin-od-rodziny It is written in Polish but there is a translator widget you can use.

So even though I am slightly apprehensive I will wait it out and if the local authorities try to demand I release the domains to them as I have documented evidence that I did try to contact them a while ago to see if they had any objections or if they were interested in acquiring it from me. The domains are in use now. So it will be the case what came first the chicken or the egg.

Towns donÔÇÖt have trademarks on their names so trademark law does not apply. Anything with a geographical origin cannot be used as a trademark. But once you include some additional letters or text then it is a whole new ball game and these types of domains can be trademarked.

Hence ÔÇťCardiffÔÇŁ (Cardiff+ext) cannot be trademarked but ÔÇťCardiff PizzaÔÇŁ (Cardiff+keyword+ext) can.

The only time things could go belly up is if the domain damages the reputation of a specific town or village then the domain owner may be held liable for this damage, which will result in a legal complaint and that could result in you losing the domain name.

Obviously, I have not said anything derogatory about the village, just about some of the people in it.

My main focus is to advertise hemp cultivation and CBD production. Even if I lost both these domain names which are merely pointing to my blog they cannot take my blog down and I will have plan B as I have acquired the following domain names which I would put in its place I am merely taking advantage of the fact how much traffic I can generate at this present moment in time:

www.polandmonthly.com

So the only time I think it may be a problem is if:

  • The intended use of the website is illegal and detrimental to your town. (Which it is not).
  • If the domain is readily available to register then there should not be a problem unless it has been registered and is deemed as cybersquatting in exchange for a ransom monetary demand.

The domain is available for registration (if you can go through with the registration it means that it hasnÔÇÖt been listed as reserved, registrars have lists of domains not available to the public which sometimes include geographical locations), I beg to differ on this as when I first started out many years ago I got a ticking off even though it was not a geographical location for having guccishoes.wales in which Gucci demanded I surrender the domain name. This was many years ago may I add and have since learned what you can and cannot register.

Just remember do not just buy a domain name and sit on it. Develop it to create traffic which will make your domain name more valuable and if you can offer a product or service you are in theory creating equity.
