Abstract: The present article deals with the concept of domain name, its protection and conflicts arising out of malafide registration of the same. Before proceeding further, it is important to give a brief on what domain names are. A domain name is an actual name given to an Internet Protocol and has every qualification of identification. Since Internet protocols are complex combination of alpha numeric values, the domain names makes the identification process of a network easy to remember. For example, remembering ‘humans’ is easier than ‘homo sapiens’ and convenient also. Similarly remembering ‘www.google.com’ is easier than ‘188.8.131.52’ . In later part of the research registration of domain names have been discussed in detail. In case of use of such registered domain name by third party unauthorizedly will amount to offence. The researcher has further thrown light on conflicts arising out of such unauthorized use and the judicial pronouncements towards the same. At the end various findings and suggestions regarding better dispute resolution system has been discussed.
