PSA Announcement: Don’t Use Network Solutions!

Here’s a story from our Web Master…

Someone was interested in buying LiquidRecruit.com. He went to NetworkSolutions.com to see if the name was available, which it was. He then emailed his boss to see if he should buy it. In the meantime, however, NetworkSolutions saw that someone had looked up an available name, but didn’t purchase it. So they bought it. When the guy came back to the site to purchase the domain, it was no longer available, snatched up by the very company he was going to purchase it through.

Never use NetworkSolutions.
