Small DNS issue (named my domain name an incorrect way?)

Simple problem. My domain name is spira.com.  Everything works great.

Problem is, there is a real website called www.spira.com
I fired up a sniffer and then typed spira.com into my webbrowser. My DNS server is resolving "www.spira.com" as me.  

How can I configure my DNS, so my clients go to the spira.com website, and not point at myself?  Was I incorrect in naming my domain name, the same name as a website?

thanks in advance
