View Full Version : Acquiring a .com Domain once you incorporate?

03-21-2005, 04:29 PM
Hello webmasters,

I am in the process of incorporating a small business for someone. The domain address for the .com and .net is registered by another party and it seems unlikely that they will sell the domain.
The reason being, the .com is owned by NetIdentity and the .net is owned by a foreign member.

I remember reading somewhere that there is a process where the business owner has a possibility of acquiring the registered domain if her/his business is incorporated.

Doing some research on this via Google.
Do you know any relevant websites that can help on this particular case?
Thanks in advance. :)

It has to do with if the domain was registered in good faith or not.

Basically, if the domain was registered for the purpose of extortion then you can get it through ICANN.

Considering your business was not formed until after the domain was registered you have no chance of getting it other than paying for it or waiting for it to expire.

Maybe use .biz
