"Because another person or entity owns a trademark that matches one or more terms or words contained in your domain name(s)."

So do we have to check trademark before creating a domain? I check for every phrase when creating Tshirt designs in Merch by Amazon.
Do we have to check trademarks here?

You should always try to ask your questions in full by including the necessary information. What marketplace is that?

Even if your domains are not rejected by marketplaces for trademark infringement, I'll be bothered about registering trademarked domains if I were you.
These are the steps I take to create a Tshirt design. When I come up with one phrase I ALWAYS go to tmsearch.uspto.com to find out if that phrase is trademarked. To your surprize many of the phrases are already trademarked. There is a slim chance of getting some profitable phrase because almost everything is trademarked.
When we come to domains, do you come up with one word or phrase and check it if it is already trademarked? Or you just go and register it?

Ya that's what I thought most people do. Including me. 😬
Yeah I think as long as you don't register anything blatant you'll probably be ok. I don't spend much on names either so not got much to lose. Common sense will usually prevail. Unfortunatley common sense is pretty thin on the ground in todays society.

Some 'domainers' don't even know the word TM

Someone registered them at google.
I can see how well that would go.

"Yes, I am selling these extremely premium names of your brand name that I registered through you. Now, if you really want them, I want $1 billion or someone else is going to snatch them up!"

Wild....just wild.
