Protecting Our Web Domain

The Internet is a great tool but being online requires some vigilance.

We have just been advised by an Internet domain registration company in China that a Chinese company, TranTing Trade Company, has applied to register variants of our www.templelodge33.ca domain name.

The domain name registration company has asked whether we are associated in any way with TranTing Trade Company – we are not – and whether we authorized TranTing Trade Company to use variants of our templelodge33.ca web domain name – we definitely did not and have not and we have advised the domain name registration company accordingly.

The variations of our templelodge33.ca domain name which TranTing Trade Company has applied to register are:

Brand Name:templelodge33
Domain Names:
“templelodge33.asia
templelodge33.in
templelodge33.co.in
templelodge33.cn
templelodge33.com.cn
templelodge33.net.cn
templelodge33.org.cn
templelodge33.cn.com
templelodge33.com.hk
templelodge33.hk
templelodge33.com.tw
templelodge33.tw
templelodge33.中国 ”

Unfortunately, we cannot prevent this Chinese company registering these web domain names unless we register them first. The cost of registering all possible worldwide variants of our domain name is prohibitive so we do not consider that a reasonable option.

But we have registered the top level domain name variant, templelodge33.com, so that others cannot use it.

We formally notify others that we are in no way associated with TranTing Trade Company, that we are the first user and registrant of the Internet domain name “templelodge33” and that our “templelodge33” domain name is used only in connection with Temple Lodge No. 33, A.F. & A.M., Duncan, B.C., Canada. Any other use of our “templelodge33” domain name in any Internet domain registration or variant suffix is not connected or associated with, or endorsed by, Temple Lodge No. 33, A.F. & A.M., Duncan, B.C., Canada in any way and Temple Lodge No. 33, A.F. & A.M., Duncan, B.C., Canada does not authorize its use or endorse any product(s), good(s), service(s), statement(s), claim(s) etc. which may be associated with it.
