    What are the ways to register a website(not domain registration) and copyright it.
    To prevent someone from registering other extensions of my website.

    Are you talking about registering your domain as a trademark? If so, you can register a trademark to be used in association with the product and/or service that you are offering.

    Source: How to Register Trade mark in India? How to File Trademarks Applications in India? How to Challenge Trademark Registration in India?

    Note that there are limitations to a trade-mark's protection. Under special circumstances, two identical or similar domain names can co-exist. One example is if they operate in different channels of trade, there is no evidence of bad faith etc.

    I'm not an expert in this area, so I recommend you consult with a trademark lawyer if you are interested in registering a trademark.
