Domain Registrar Network Solutions Front Running On Whois Searches

by Adam Strong in Categories: Featured

A story is developing regarding domain name registrar Network Solutions front running domains. According to multiple sources on, it appears that domains searched via NSI are being purchased by the registrar thereby preventing a registrant from purchasing it at any other registrar other than NSI. As an example, a random domain which DNN searches such as can be seen in this whois search to now be unavailable to register at other registrars but at NSI it can be purchased

The whois contact now says :

    Registrant: Make this info private
    This Domain is available at
    13681 Sunrise Valley Drive, Suite 300
    HERNDON, VA 20171

The domains are likely being purchased and held in NSI ownership until the potential registrant comes back to purchase the name through NSI. If the purchase is not made at NSI within 5 days, NSI uses the same 5 day grace period that domain tasting operations use and they delete the domain. Once a search for a domain is conducted at NSI the domain name is registered and only available to be purchased by a registrant at NSI. It is not clear if NSI has increased prices on domains that have received multiple whois searches and that they are front running.

NSI also apparently has no problem taking over control of trademark domains using this practice as well. Searches for names such as and all appear as registered now by NSI and only available for purchase at NSI.

Front running domain names is a bold move by any registrar as it breaks a certain level of trust that the general public places in using a whois search. ICANN SSAC has conducted a “study” on front running recently in which they wrote “ICANN’s Registrar Accreditation Agreement and Registry Agreements do not expressly prohibit registrars and registries from monitoring and collecting WHOIS query of domain name availability query data and either selling this information or using it directly,” Warehousing domains in order to sell them to “potentially interested parties” isn’t specifically forbidden in the registrar contract with ICANN but is addressed in points 3.7.9 and 4.2.5 of the contract in which they leave room for new rules or revisions to the contract. In a quick look search it appears that other registries have addressed this issue. As an example, the SGNIC for example has a contract that expressly addresses this issue.

    it shall not engage in and shall prohibit bulk access to Registrant’s data, warehousing of or speculation in Domain Names, and shall implement any policies SGNIC may from time to time prescribe to prohibit or restrict such activities. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Registrar shall not (i) submit any application for the registration, renewal, transfer, modification or cancellation of a Domain Name registration or any other request or transaction relating thereto purportedly on behalf of any Person when it is not in fact so authorized, or on behalf of a non-existent Person; (ii) acpigulate or warehouse Domain Name registrations with which Registrar or such Person has no reasonable connection, for the purpose of removing them from availability for others, transferring them for immediate or deferred direct or indirect gain or profit or for any other reason whatsoever, nor shall it knowingly participate in any such undertaking.

This is a compleatly asshole like thing to do, as people should not be forced to buy from networksolutions, just for using their whois search.

People around the web have decided to tiger the company money by searching pointless 20+ letter long domains.

Give it a try.

Create some yourself and post them here.
Make them hilarious.

Some of the domains I have registered:

RPGWO 2 / More people on server
« on: January 06, 2008, 08:45:00 pm »
1. I'm exactly sure about this, because I haven't played in a while, but I believe a RPGWO servers have a limit of 100 people on one server.

I suggest that there should be only 1 or 2 servers and they should have a limit of 300 people.

I'm not sure if RPGWO will ever have such a large player base though.


More suggestions:

2. Once again, I'm not sure if Mick ever fixed this, but the password for RPGWO should really be encrypted a lot better, I don't think anyone wants to see the password list be posted on this forum again.

3. Also, what ever happen to this, Mick:

RPGWO Design Notes:

Government and Law

April 17, 2001
# each sector can have a magistrate/mayor/governor
# one sector is a 200x200 part of the map, filling the client world map view
# land owners elect a ruler; the more land an individual owner has, the more weight the vote carries
# The Ruler:

      cannot buy/sell land for self in their sector psican levy taxes: sales, property, toll, etc can claim/buy land as public can build on public land using tax revenue: water works, parks, roads, walls, towers, etc. can "make" NPC guards and set them up or command them (not directly), this uses taxes can define law for their sector and assign "outlaw" points to each unlawful act can give or take away outlaw points (condem or pardon) can set a bounty on a player, giving bounty hunters right to PK them, if a hunter has a letter of bounty then they get money and outlaw gets warped to jail? can declare war/peace/ally with other sectors (an ally shares outlaw players but not laws?)

# the ruler's term last one V-year or less if they resign or are impeached!
# Voting:

      when a sectors land is at least 50% claimed, any land owner may initiate a vote a vote is also initiated when the current ruler's term is over to be a candidate you must be the ruler or have one land owner nominate you, land owners may nominate themselves after 1 V-month or V-week? a vote starts that lasts 1 V-week or when a majority is met for one candidate

# outlaw points, rstrict activity in a sector, like no buying or selling or guards attack on site
# outlaw points earned when a player breaks a law defined by a ruler of the sector the crime happens in
# some crimes: player killing, arson, theft, tax evasion, etc.
# citizenship: any person may have one, giving them discount on taxes
# a sector with out a ruler is a state of chaos, no law, every player for themselves

Honesty that seems pretty cool to me

How bout you lazy tigers look it up. It's not that tigering hard to google it. Basically it's RPGWO mixed with Tibia, and about 1000x better. You get pets, which like completely tigering own everything, and you can ride them. You get houses, player vendors, etc. etc. Like I said, rpgwo, except its beefed up. 760 megs beefed up. So meh. Crack, it doesn't have that great of requirements.. I'm sure you can play it. I'll work on making the server and adding scripts later, I'm getting addicted to one of the public shards heh

Oh yeah, you can AFK macro too if you wish, though some servers don't allow it. Also there are training rooms, similar to conquer, that you can leave your player in. Althought, some servers dont allow afk for that either, but its still cool

Great Idea Muffin Man, Ultima Online is a great game, even though it is ancient.
