What is the process for resolving my complaint?
Someone else has registered my company’s name as a .Com domain name.
Conduct a Whois Domain name search and obtain the information about the current registrant. All ICANN-accredited Registrars follow a uniform dispute resolution policy.
Under that policy, disputes over entitlement to a domain name registration are ordinarily resolved by an expedited administrative procedure (called arbitration) to allow the dispute to be resolved without the cost and delays often encountered in court litigation.
In these cases, you can invoke the administrative procedure by filing a complaint with one of the dispute-resolution service providers listed at http://www.icann.org/udrp/udrp.htm

A registrar can not modify or purge a name in REDEMPTIONPERIOD status. The only action a registrar can take on a name in REDEMPTIONPERIOD is to request that it be restored.
