Do I need to trademark website?

Hi once my website starts getting bigger do I need to trademark it?
Imagine having Dogobedienceadvice.com (Mark's dog site, it's pretty big now) Im assuming he earns in the big 5-6 figures a year from it.
Anyways, what if someone made a product named that, if Mark hasnt trademarked that site, then tries to sue him?
Should he have trademarked it? Do we have to?
Cheers

it really depends on your plans for the site and niche. for example, if you want to start creating products within the niche, and you want to brand your business with that name as an authority, then I would definitely think about it. but that is long term, and not something you should worry about very early on.
