    While Registering a Domain Name for .Com Extension , is it advisable to Register the Name and its Variations with other Extensions too in order to limit the chances of Competitors to register them.
    But then it becomes too expensive during renewals, if you are not able to flip your .Com in time.

    Thanks.

    No unless you're protecting a TM or brand.

    You might consider registering common misspellings in .com, if you're using the name or it has type-in traffic.

    No, you will burn a lot of cash if you do so.

    I've done it for a couple of my existing dot com domains when the extensions are dirt cheap, but will likely drop most when renewals are due. They may come in handy for back-linking and SEO promotion.

    Usually the tendency of a Enduser or a Startup is to register a Domain with other Extension if .Com is unavailable. In this case does it reduces the chances of a Com domain holder to sell it for the same business.

    I don't understand what you wanna know here, Let me explain, I am a business with a name "xxxxxx" and the .com is not available so I go and buy .net or .co or .org. The owner of the .com can sell the domain to anyone he wishes there is no link.
