Is dynadot selling domain name logs that you're searching for?

Id like an answer to that question. I have found MULTIPLE domain names which I was going to register have been taken as soon as 30 mins after I searched for them and they were open. Are you selling that information?

The central registry when you do a whois there are other companies that somehow get the logs. They register the domain hoping to make a quick buck when you email them.  After 4.5 days of "tasting" it they will drop it without any offers.

We are not selling search logs. We would never do something like that. Several people have asked us this recently.

When you do a search, there are several places where your info may be intercepted.

1) Between your browser, and our web server. The connection is not SSL, though we have been thinking of adding a SSL protected search. There may be people out there sniffing traffic.

2) Between our server and the central registry. This is a SSL protected connection. I know we are not selling search data, and I sincerely hope the central registries are not doing it. The main search sends your request to all registries (COM, NET, ORG, INFO, WS, etc) and if only one of them is selling data then the search is compromised.

3) From our web server back to your browser.

This is ridiculous, if you see a good domain name jump on it! other people are also playing the same game as you, 5-10 minute is a Looooong delay to register a good name, especially when there's now name auction that grab the name a few second after they drop!
