Network Solutions hijacking your subdomains?

Still, the bad press can’t be good for Network Solutions’ already shaky reputation. The company made a name for itself earlier this year by employing a new practice of immediately registering domains to itself that potential customers searched for on Network Solutions’ site, but did not yet register.

Network Solutions insisted that it had received customer data proving that frontrunners were stealing their domains, but refused to turn the data over to ICANN’s Security and Stability Advisory Committee.
