« Back to Domain Name Dictionary | Definition of usNDP

The usNDP (usTLD Nexus Dispute Policy) applies specifically to disputes involving a complaint that a .us top-level domain (TLD) name is not registered by a United States entity and is in violation of the Nexus Requirements for .us TLDs. The “top-level” of a domain name refers to the domain name’s final extension; for instance, the theoretical domain name “” would be a .us top-level domain name because it terminates in .us. A domain name that features .us in its name but does not terminate in .us is not subject to the usNDP.

The usNDP may apply to Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs).

A complaint that a .us TLD is registered and/or used in abusive bad faith and violates trademark rights should not be filed under the usNDP; rather, it should be filed under the usDRP (usTLD Dispute Resolution Policy).
