The fast option costs more but has a huge benefit. If you chose to use the normal option, someone else might take your domain name before you register it. For example, you have selected the domain name vkresle.ua. You apply for the "VKRESLE" trademark and wait a year and a half. While you are waiting, somebody else can apply for the same trademark, but using a fast option. That means, that they will obtain their certificate and successfully register the domain much faster. In this case, you will not be able to register the chosen name anymore, and all the waiting time will go to waste. To avoid this, you need to weigh the risks. If the trademark is popular, it is definitely better to pay for a fast option.

For example, the “домен.уа” will turn into “domen.ua” (as you can see, the words might get misspelled this way). The symbols and characters, that are used to give the brand a unique name (such as @, &, or :) will not be used when creating a domain name.
