domainsite involved in domain name front running
This is my first post in this forum.
I'd like to warn the world of webmasters, especially the new/inexperienced ones in order for them not to make the same mistake as I did.
I have terrible experience with DomainSite.com. I searched quite a few domain names early this month. The best one among them was lost the same day I searched it. It was registered by someone else.
Through Whois service, I found that the creation date and update date are the same. They are both the day I searched it on DomainSite. I also believe that if creation date and update date is the same, it means it was registered for the first time. In other words, the domain name was there for years withouth anyone touched for even once, but it was registered the same day I searched it. It cannot be a coincedence.
I cannot tell if there is security problem with DomainSite's web site, or it's DomainSite to leak/sell the information to the registrant, or DomainSite is owned by the registrant. But one thing is for sure, searching domain names on DomainSite is dangerous.
Furthermore, if you do a domain name check for "domainsite.com", the domain name of DomainSite itself, on DomainTools.com, you'll find that "domainsite.com" is for sale. No *normal* domain registrant sells their own domain.
The best suggestion I can give to other domain name seekers, based on the issue I've experienced, is that:
Do *NOT* use DomainSite in any way.
