Domain Name Theft

Hi everyone,
I'm new to the net, but I am getting  
angry at domain name theft.
Here's my problem. I typed in a name in  
my address bar to see if a certain domain
name would pop up. It came back that the  
browser could not  find site.  
Then 2 days later the name is registered  
by capdom^com out of Miami,
FL. Can anything be done about this type  
of stealing?

Sorry to read what happened. But one reason why the
answer is no is because they didn't steal what you don't
own to begin with.
It's understandable why you're angry because you're
new here, as you said. If you look hard enough, you can
see why it's got pros and cons and which people take
their pick.
But all is not lost:
1. Don't query the domain name on your browser or any
WHOIS search service until you're ready to order it on
the spot.
2. Don't contact the current registrant just yet.
3. Wait 120 hours (5 days) from its initial creation date.
With luck, it'll be available again by then.
Mark that day on your calendar. No excuses.
