Its an abuse of their position and spent a lot of time trying to justify an abuse of their position and should be reprimanded severely for continuation of bad practices.

Hi there,

There's no danger in checking a domains availability. To check a domain's availability you can use the websites or (for .eu domains). If the domain is already registered, it gives you additional information as well. Cheers!

I think the caching/monitoring is an urban legend as well.

I like live/instant domain search sites which give immediate results and alternates/suggestions, like:

I do not use Godaddy for domain searches, due to having issues with a domain I was looking up having been taken. I usually use a domain name generator and put key words I want in and then see if the domain is take or do a tracerout lookup on and usually that can tell me if it is registered or not and its simple.

The majority of domain name registrars provide this service at their domain search tab - just simply click on the x or whois - this can differ between registrars.

To me there is other factors more important than where you search ur lookup,the guy who sold knew that if national geographic commercialized other abbreviation like NG and make it official simply because they had NG.COM ,well he knew it was over so is ok but there is tons of other factors too

TV channels instead of searching availability,invent something weird and new

You can do as well

As I know nobody will be knowing what domains you are searching they are protected by ICANN.
