Domain names are not protected by a patent.     Patents can only protect inventions such as machines, widgets, compositions of matter (e.g. new chemical compounds), processes, and methods (including some software methods).

(also, I deleted your actual URL part of your post and I don't want any links to external sites posted here for spam reasons)
