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 ‘’ is easier than ‘’ .

The researcher has further thrown light on conflicts arising out of such unauthorized use and the judicial pronouncements towards the same.
