Is someone using your primary domain name for sending emails to your employees – or even your customers – claiming to be you?
Does your brand have sufficient legal protection?
Do you know if someone is stealing your domain names right now?
Are there apps out there that claiming to be published by your company?
Who is in charge of these issues at your company?
Lack of control can lead to huge losses. The reasons are always lack of strategies, routines and a lack of clarity about who is responsible. Hence the need to consolidate trademarks and domain names, and co-ordinate the responsibility for them.
Ports Group is full service partner that actively protects and monitors your trademarks and domain names, on a global scale. We create safety and minimise risk for our clients. What makes us unique is that we take full legal responsibility for your trademarks and domain names and handle everything from start to finish – from hosting services, through active monitoring of your intellectual property rights, to legal disputes – all under one roof.
You can find our clients in every line of business, and in every stage of maturity. We help digital startups as well as industrial companies, with protecting brands legally, digitally and globally. What unites our clients is a shared care for their brands, and that they value having a long-term partner that has a strategic overall approach to the protection of their brands.
At Ports Group, we strive for simple and transparent pricing, and we always tailor the solution to fit the client’s situation and needs. Read more about how we help our clients by reading our Client Case Studies.
It all began back in 1994 in Gothenburg, Sweden with a hosting company. On its website was a search engine for checking the availability of a domain name. The search engine became increasingly popular and domain names quickly became the main business. We later became the first ICANN-accredited registrar in Sweden, and one of the first in Europe, making us one of the oldest still active domain name registrars today.
During the following 20 years, the business grew into a company group with several separate subsidiaries and brands that became prominent in domain names, hosting, intellectual property, strategic consultancy and more. We realised that these solutions needed to be integrated in order to offer as much value as possible for our clients. Therefore, in 2016 it was a natural step for us to become one brand and one organisation – Ports Group.
