Don't use networksolutions.com for you domain name searches...

I frequently get “great” ideas and reserve some domain names. Call me silly, but this makes the ideas more tangible even if I never work on them. I book my domain names through 1and1.com, for about $7 a year, but I do usually the search on netsol.com . So I searched for some names this morning, then decided to abandon, my idea didn’t need a separate domain for now, and to my surprise I got the following dialog when leaving the site:


So what does that mean? Well, it seems if I click OK they will hide the names I searched for from others users who are doing searches for 4 days. So my recommendation: don’t use networksolutions.com for your search.
