Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124
As I was looking for a domain name for my site I found the domain name I want which is a .org extension since my site is non-profit, my problem is that someone owns the .com extension, however it has been parked for a year or so and not being used. I know you should get all top 3 tld's but I wasn't able to on this domain so I got the .net and .org extension and will use the .org one. Now my question is if this person who owns the .com extension starts a site do I have to worry about any problems. I also searched to see if there is any product or not related to my domain that is tradmarked or even for sale and found none. I don't know who owns the domain in question, its private but parked.
thanx upfront for any replies on this

You can also search for the complete url. Sometimes 'bad' sites get mentioned in forums.
There is also the possibility that someone has registered the .com because he/she is using another extension, e.g., .co.uk.
Another point is that .com is often used for non-commercial sites and is the most commonly used extension. .org and .net are very specific. Are you really an organisation or involved in networks?
Thanx for you comment Harry and I never thought about the Wayback idea, great one.
To whom ever runs this place I love the spell check.
