We went to register them this week, and they have all been taken. We did all our research on who.is. Is there a way that people can discover what you are searching for and then simply register the domains you were looking at?
Another problem was, domains that showed up as available on who.is often were not and were registered with name.com (we discovered this after clicking on the "available" domain on who.is, only to find it is not available on name.com).
Just thought I'd throw a heads up out there. If you see a domain you like, and it's available, buy it. We have learnt a very expensive and costly lesson, but hopefully our mistakes can benefit others here.
