First come, first served, what does it mean?

When a registry offers a domain under this premise of “the first one who asks gets it” means that a anyone can register your domain before you.

Therefore, for solid brands with strategic interest on the .barcelona or globally present and renowned brands it is considered a high risk domain and must be taken into consideration in their brand protection strategy.

This happens with all domains once they enter the general availability stage: you can request any domain, brands do not have priority access or any other advantage when registering it.

My domain is already registered, what should I do?

If a third party has already registered a .barcelona domain of your interest, first you must resolve whether your brand has legal rights over that domain name.

If your brand is trademarked and the domain name is relevantly linked to it, you will be able to dispute the ownership of the domain according to the litigation mechanisms established by the Registry. If this is your case, we recommend you to talk to our legal team with expertise on domain recovery.

¿What if my brand is not trademarked? The other option is to contact the owner of the .barcelona domain name and negotiate its purchase. It’s not an easy process, so we again recommend you our legal team advise.
