Recently Registered Domain Name Lists (http://www.namestead.com/new-domains-lists/index.asp) (.com only)
Seems like the race is on to secure a website, no matter how obtuse or incoherent the 'name' appears to be.

Awhile back, I researched United.com. It was expiring relatively soon after I did a search. I thought it was this website (you provided). I thought the website would tell you when a registered site would expire. That way, you could swoop in and grab it. It doesn't seem to give that information out any longer.

Maybe you're thinking of internic.net (http://reports.internic.net/cgi/whois?whois_nic=united.com&type=domain):
"Domain Name: UNITED.COM
Updated Date: 22-jan-2005
Creation Date: 17-dec-1998
Expiration Date: 16-dec-2011..."

Yeah, I can see why someone really needed aaaaaaaaaaa.com, or aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.com. Oy.

Businesses Rush for '.eu' Domain Name (http://dailynews.att.net/cgi-bin/news?e=pri&dt=051208&cat=frontpage&st=frontpageap20051208_484&src=abc)

European businesses rushed to sign up for the new ".eu" Internet domain name, putting in 100,000 Web site applications by the end of its first day available, the group in charge of registering the requests said Thursday.
My goodness.

I have also read in the paper something about certain existing name restrictions being lifted. Something like a.com was not allowed but now it is because of length requirements.

Bad Web registrations abound, GAO finds (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/10381757/)
More than 5 percent use 'patently false' contact information

SAN FRANCISCO - More than 5 percent of Internet address names issued in the United States are registered using "patently false" contact information, making it difficult or impossible to contact the sites' owners, according to report submitted to Congress.

Another 3.7 percent of domain names ending in ".com," ".net" and ".org" contain missing information in required contact fields, the Government Accountability Office said in a report submitted to the House Subcommittee on Courts, the Internet and Intellectual Property.

In all, 3.9 million names, or about 8.7 percent, contain contact details that "appeared obviously and intentionally false" or are incomplete, the report said.
I thought this an interesting article, especially, the reason(s) given for purposely leaving out information.

So does that mean that...that... there are things on the internet that are not true? Oh, no!

:lol:

I was thinking it something "naughty", but it was because they don't want to get spammed.

I thought this an interesting article, especially, the reason(s) given for purposely leaving out information.

As an ISP for the past 10+ years, those 'reasons' are spaecious at best. Inaccurate information has been common in the registrations from day one. There are definately systems available that would make data mining registrar sites much more difficult.

Besides, data mining for spam, etc is much easier on newsgroups.
