    Warning: Please Read

    While domainstate.com makes every effort to ensure the names offered for sale by owners or brokers are kosher, members must be aware that domains may not always be the rightful property of the seller.

    Domains have been stolen before and most likely will be stolen again and offered for sale either on this site or other venues.

    It is therefore important for members to thoroughly check ownership before paying for any domain either bought off this site or elsewhere.

    Perhaps we could have a 'database' of domains that we know are stolen, so members could check in case they were offered it?

    that is the role of the warning forum - and there are many posts in there relating to stolen domains.
    When using google for counts - use double quotes for usage counts for multiword terms and set "match type" to "exact" for all search volume lookups. Click here for more info

    Yep - I was only thinking perhaps some kind of 'table' or a page with just a list of domains on might be useful to some people.

    There are lots of ways domains get stolen:

    Social engineering (calling up registrars and pretending to be the domain owner) to get the email address changed

    Hacking/phishing the admin email account

    Registering an expired domain that is still used as the admin contact on the target domain

    Registering an expired domain that is still used as the dns on the target domain that also itself as the admin contact email address

    once the thief has the admin email account many registrars will provide everything they need to transfer that domain out to a different registrar from which they can sell the stolen domain on.

    that's done - but what on earth led you to believe that posting the request to this thread was the best way to accomplish it?
