Karminus for Network Solutions

I saw on Reddit and slashdot that Network Solutions was registering every domain name that you use their web site to check the availability of. That is, if you’re thinking about registering binchaznufungun.com, so you type binchaznufungun into their “Is this domain available” tool, they will register the domain temporarily so that you can’t use any other domain registrar to register it.

That’s ugly. It’s called “front running” the domains. Here’s Network Solutions lame response at CircleID.

Be sure not to give Network Solutions any of your money!
