    once u PAY for domain registration u can hold off on doing anything with it for as long as u want. but there's no way to prevent anyone else from buying the domain u want, say, if u leave it in your shopping cart without paying for it. in fact some registrars have been known to swipe things out from under people just by paying attention to searched terms. (This doesnt happen so much these days but it has in the past.)

    so: if u think the domain has value to u, find a way to pay for it now.
