    Right here. I'm the boogieman, the guy who has inside info on domain searches, specifically at namecheap.com apparently. Just ask the guy who called me every name in the alphabet who had the name in his cart but had an issue with their card.

    I'm still waiting for the lawsuit. :ROFL:

    You can also Google - Sightings of Bigfoot, or using pixie dust to fly like Peter Pan if you are interested. I think you will find them about as accurate as us buying searched domains. I have stated over and over we do not.

    Can you provide proof? that Godaddy are front running domain names.

    I guess most NP members wont take you serious, unless you provide proof.

    Instead of making serious allegations that quite honestly can't be proven either way, why do you actually ask productive questions.

    Like perhaps what security steps registrars take to ensure rogue employees can't access your data (search or otherwise).

    GoDaddy most certainly does collect your data (they send you emails remind you to buy it if it's still available, so the data is being collected), but it's a big step to accuse them of using/selling it to benefit anyone other than yourself.

    At the end of the day, ANY registrar that does collect such data is open to security breaches .. from hackers .. but mostly for employees .. and the truth is .. that there is no way to be 100% sure either way without the registrar allowing you to go in and audit their code .. which something tells me isn't likely to ever happen ... (Correct me if I'm wrong @Joe Styler and @Paul Nicks .. lol .. or should I call you Big Foot and Peter Pan?)

    So the only answer is .. if you don't trust a registrar .. don't use them. As there simply is no way to ever prove to you that there isn't some leak.


    Also don't forget that GoDaddy doesn't make much money on domains compared to their add-on products .. so as a corporate policy, it really wouldn't make sense for them to sell that data to domainers who would only buy domains without any add-on services. Again though .. rogue employees would have that consideration.
