Anybody knows what happened to www.whois.net? They had a nice free search engine for expired domain names based on keywords. Can't be reached anymore since 3 - 4 days.

BTW, is (was) it VeriSign operating that site? The Whois-record says "Verio", is that part of VesiSign, or maybe vice versa?

I've noticed its been down too. Whois.net is (or was) a great resource that’s been around a long time. Not always up to date, but very flexible and useful when combined with other tools. I liked for example that you could check how many TLDs are registered that contain a particular keyword, who registered them, and if or how they are being used. I'll miss it if its gone. Here is another good research tool: http://www.archive.org/

well.. so, that's prob. why the system is not accessible..

drops will probably be lagging during next few days.

it all trickles down..

just my opinion
