Your website is important to marketing your business. One of the first things someone does when they want to find out about your company is check out your website. If someone registers a domain name that causes the public confusion between you and your competitor, it’s called “cybersquatting,” which may violate Internet laws and regulations.

  • A disgruntled worker or customer using the domain name to post negative information about your company.
  • Someone buying the domain using your business name with the hope of reselling it to you.
