NSI Registers Every Domain Checked

Ewan Re:At 4:24 PM (EDT-US) (668 comments)

It's not a hold tag, they do actually register it - it's called domain tasting. You can register a domain and keep it for 5 days before you need to either pay for it or release it.

What NSI are doing is registering the domain for the 5 day period after anyone does a search for the name, making anyone who wants the domain only buy it through them for the 5 days. If after 5 days noone wants it, then NSI can simply release the domain name and not pay a penny.
