If you’re too lazy to read the entire thing then here’s a brief summary of how to avoid losing a domain you just searched for.
- Avoid address bar guessing.
- Avoid search engines that don’t make a billion dollars a year in revenue.
- Avoid browser plug-ins that send data back to the Internet.
- Go directly to trusted registrars and whois companies.
