Network Solutions defends frontrunning—to stop frontrunners: If you search for a domain at Network Solutions, it will get automatically registered to Network Solutions for four days.
The practice resulted in Network Solutions registering a previously-unregistered domain to itself immediately after someone searched for it, then holding the domain for four days before it could be purchased by someone else or at another registrar. But the company claims that it’s merely trying to protect customers from others doing exactly that.
NetSol has responded that it’s doing this to prevent other people from stealing the domains you searched for. Other people are saying that it requires you to become a NetSol customer if you want to get your domain during the four-day period.
