    Do WHOIS sites review domain searches?

    I used to look up some domain names. A couple of weeks later 2 of the available names were taken. Is this just a coincidence (most likely) or do these sites save & review names that have been searched on?

    i think it is just coincidence.

    I'm sure they keep logs of what domains where checked, but in terms of the domains being registered a few weeks later, like hosjet said, is merely a coincidence.

    Exactly the same thing happened to me a few years ago, just the domains went within a few days. They were fairly specialist domains and I was surprised that they had gone, leaving me thinking that maybe the company was registering domains that weren't bought immediately.

    Maybe it's nothing, but since then I've always searched on the more popular sites, hoping they wouldn't try anything
