How much does it cost to sign-up for Yahoo! Godaddy domain name Registration.?
Question I have... How much does it cost to sign-up for Yahoo! Godaddy domain name Registration.? Thanks in advance for any response. Another question... I know poker typos are flying off the shelves, I even own several, but each time I reg one, I can't help but think of TM issues. I've gotten some really good advice from a fellow that is really knowledgeable when it comes to poker typos and poker names in general. (I'm sure you know who I mean, but keeping it on the low, so he won't get a flood of PM's and emails) He says that no poker name is trademarked except for logos and whatnot.

There have been attempts, but have all failed..

So is it ok to reg these without any worry whatsoever..

It seems if you use the very close typo of a major poker GoDaddy site to re-direct to the actual site, as in an affiliate situation, then no one is harmed and both may profit. I have just regged 2 names that I would like to do that with, but I'm kind of afraid of mentioning that I have domains very close to their own, even though I want to re-direct to their site..

Has anyone else had any similar situations and how did it turn out?.

Any info is apprciated...

That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the right answer. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I got an answer. You should email the people at Godaddy as they probably can help you..

In general, the poker sites have been able to obtain logo trademarks but not traditional trademarks on their names. If they are a longstanding group such as WPT or Harrah's, the trademark situation is obviously different. Poker Stars, on the other hand, is trying to get a trademark on their name, although they haven't been sucessful as of yet. While some poker sites might look down on typo registrations, it.


Capture traffic that might have otherwise been lost, and so they may not mind the links in some cases. If we are moving closer to legalized, regulated online gambling then it is a good point to evaluate the situation long-term: the industry is relatively young and the standards today are still being shaped. If you look at Party Gaming, you can see how the industry is beginning to mature, and, in the larger sense, all affiliate gambling relations are changing so we'll have to wait and see what this means for affiliates, typos and the like.

Thanks Rocket. We shall see..

Mellow, to answer your question, I know that PartyPoker just gives you a tracking URL to use with links, banners, or in my case and many others, I just use HostGator forwarding through Godaddy to re-direct to my tracking URL..

For instance, you type in and you go to with my tracking #..

Hope it helps..

Well I'm gonna try to see how AbsolutePoker responds about their typos, I'll keep you guys posted..
