    Useless Domains?

    So today I was ready to purchase a domain name from GOdaddy.com and every time I think of a good name they state it is already taken but whenever I Google it that domain does not show up.

    Has this ever happened to you. Please share?

    Nothing new in it bro.It's all part of the business.Some domains are advanced purchased so that they can be sold on higher prices later on.They purchase it and save without any uploading and at the right time they sell it as they want.

    Yes, it happens and most question the ethics. If you PM Me the domain name I can see when it expires and help you get it.

    Great to hear, make sure you jump on them as soon as they expire

    BTW, http://whois.domaintools.com/ is perfect for that purpose. (And you can check if a particular domain name is already registered)

    The domain name servers could be left unset, even the default parking ones, making the domain "lost."

    Once I was searching GoDaddy for an AWESOME domain and searched it thrice for some reason the same day. The next day it was taken =/

    Unlucky Steven. Well I search for unique names, why would I go for something that has already been taken? Just make sure your site is unique, and the domain won't be taken...

    These domains are then placed under 'Premium Domains' and are given as suggestions to people searching.
