    I found a few domains that I would like to register, but the registrars say that they are taken. When I check whois, there are no records for any of the domains that I am interested in. Perhaps they are in the process of being dropped? How would I check out my theory? Does anyone else have an explanation for this behavior?

    I'd tried Googling this. Most of the hits ask the same question, usually in forums, but none of the answers that I found are useful - they say things like clear your cache, try again later etc.

    wait , they will be available after some days .

    but in auction you will have to pay more than their actual cost .

    did you tried to back order them ?

    Thank you for the suggestions. I thought about this and decided to check the names using my subscription to
    Code:
    domaintools.com
    (free account.) I can see the whois registration information for these domains using this account. None of the domains is dropped even if the sites don't load. So I won't rely on registrar whois information in future. I didn't realize they were so unreliable.
