      What they are doing is illegal under Uniform Domain Naming Policy, its cybersquatting.
      Google recently won one such dispute filed with World Intellectual Property
      Organisation (WIPO) Arbitration and Mediation Center
      more on it here: http://www.domainnews.com/en/google-wins-domain-name-case.html


      P.S. No flame wars on the term 'Intellectual Property' please :-p

      Hi K.C,

      I did find this trend mostly with network solutions where he sells these domains back for a premium. Thank you for providing safe domain search urls.

      Hi all,

      I have been searching for a domain name for a new service we were planning to launch. I shortlisted a few good ones which were available and went back to register them the next week. To my surprise, I found them not available. These are not common names - they are very specific to a niche service and I doubted that somebody else would have thought the of same names at the exact same time.

      On googling, I found that Network solutions and some other registrars do something called 'front-running' where they basically block all domain names that were searched for and force you to pay more.

      There is a work around to this - Use

      Hope this helps somebody.

      K. C. Ramakrishna
