Is it possible for another person to register my domain name after I have registered it?

.com, .net, .org, .biz and .info domain name availability is verified by opensrs.org and other accredited registrars through shared registration system universal databases of available .com, net, .org, .biz and .info domain names. These systems prevent a domain name that is successfully registered through register.com from being registered through another domain name registration site. Note: ccTLD (Country Code Top Level Domain)availability - for example, .ro, .dk, .sh, etc. - are verified using systems that only get updated by that country's registry every 24 - 72 hours. Domain names are registered by the country's registry on a first-come first-serve basis. However, in the event that the registry has not yet updated the sources used to verify ccTLD availability and an attempt was made to register a recently registered domain name, the attempted registration will be rejected by the registry. AISO.Net will refund the registration fees for ccTLD registrations rejected by the registry if the domain name is taken.
