The domain I want to register has already been registered!

Domain names are registered on a first-come, first-served basis; provided the registrant of the domain is eligible to hold the license (ie: they meet all the requirements).

Should you find the domain name you want to register is taken, you can attempt to contact the owner of the domain name license to determine their willingness to transfer it to you. However they are under no obligation to do so.

Note: Netregistry can only provide you with a domain name registrant's contact information as detailed on the whois public record.
