Subject: Yep, I've been checking for availability on register.com, then buying from a cheaper registrar.

Message:
 

 
After buying, it shows as no longer available back at Register.com, but of course the whois doesn't show anything as yet.

It's a stupid chicken-arse way of going about it, but what at least there's a way of checking if something's been taken. Why neulevel couldn't just stick a 'not available and no whois data available' flag for group 2 and 3, I do not know. Clearly it is because they are either incompetant or corrupt benefiting from confusion and inconvenience (or both).

On the bright side, there are still some good generics available. I just picked up a one word generic entirely suited to business, which when entered into Google yields 2.5 million results - can't be bad.
