Combatting Domain Name Hijacking and Theft

Combatting Domain Name Hijacking and Theft

Domain hijacking, or domain theft, occurs when a person improperly changes the registration of a domain name without permission from the original registrant. A domain can be hijacked for several reasons: to generate money through click-through traffic, for resale to the proper owner or a third party, to add value to an existing business, for malicious reasons, or to achieve notoriety.

Protect your online business by learning alternative routes if your register can't or won't assist you. Read more about the law surrounding your domain name.
