What should I do if I think I have the right to a domain name that is taken?

Back to all questions and answers

Punktum dk cannot decide about who has the right to a domain name - not even if you have copyright to the domain name.

If you believe that you have the right to register the domain name, you can complain to the Complaints Board for Domain Names. The board can decide who has the most right to the domain name in question.

You will find the Complaints Board's contact information here.

On the Complaints Board's website, you can read more about how to submit a complaint to the board.

You can always try to come to an agreement with the existing registrant to have the domain name transferred to you. If the registrant's contact information is not publicly available, you can notify the registrant that you wish to get in touch with him/her via the "contact" icon when you look up the domain name in the WHOIS database.
