The domain name I want is taken, what should I do?

Find another domain name or try a different domain extension. Unfortunately, domain names are registered on a first come, first serve basis. In case you own a registered trademark and/or brand name for that domain, you may resort to legal steps to retrieve such name from any person that has wrongfully registered your name as a domain name. We suggest you contact a lawyer or go to http://www.domaindisputes.co.za/index.php for more information on .co.za disputes. For other domain extensions we suggest you go to http://www.icann.org/udrp/udrp-rules-24oct99.htm and http://www.icann.org/dndr/udrp/policy.htm
