If you have a live trademark, you have the right for it to be protected in case of any infringements, including web domain infringement. This applies to identical as well as similar domains, which might confuse the customer.

As the holder of the intellectual property rights, you might reach out to the other business and ask them to stop the infringement. If an amicable solution doesn't work, you might file a trademark infringement lawsuit and take your case to court.

Proceedings in the court might require hiring a lawyer specialized in trademark law, who would help you sufficiently gather evidence supporting your case and present it to the court.
