The Brand Registry Group (BRG) is an association of companies who share the goal of empowering Brand Top-Level-Domains (Brand TLDs) in the domain name industry.

The BRG’s purpose is to support the collective interests of our members and help them to derive maximum value from their Brand TLDs.

The BRG was formed in 2013 when a number of companies foresaw the need to work collaboratively within the domain name industry to support the needs of Brands that applied for their own TLD after ICANN opened the application round for new gTLDs. As of July 2016, the BRG has grown to more than 40 members, representing over 70 Brand TLDs. We have a diverse membership across the globe, with 48% based in Europe, 30% in North America and 20% in Asia and the remainder in the Middle East.

Transitional Membership is also open to companies that intend to apply for one or more Brand TLDs in the future. This provides a special ‘Observer’ status and enables early BRG community access and participation.
