I was going to register a domain like 'StopGlobalWarming.com', but it had registered already. Then I changed it to 'StopTheGlobalWarming.com'. Are there any problems with it? Does it make sense?

Domain names are advertising, not grammar. Anything that gets traffic is good.

In normal speech you don't use "the". This is because "warming" is used as the participle/gerund of the verb "warm" and not an independent noun. This may change. There is a natural grammar change from gerunds to nouns, and you can have "Stop the warming of the Earth!"

But that doesn't matter. For a domain name, "Stoptheglobalwarming" is not good because it is too long, and people will forget to put in "the" and end up at the domain squatter that owns "stopglobalwarming".
