Domain Name Front Running
I have just been the victim of Domain Name Front Running.
I did not even know it existed, or I had been a victim until it happened again and I was sure it wasn’t a coincidence….
I had a domain name “stolen” from me as I tried to purchase it.
What is Domain Name Front Running
Domain front running is when you search for a domain name to purchase but do not buy straight away, and a company registers the name and then tries to sell at auction or through a buy now for several thousands of pounds/dollars.
