    If I worked for NetSol marketing, I would tell you that we have put this “temp-hold” feature in to *protect* your client. Why? Domain squatters have come up with clever ways to watch WHOIS searches, auto-buy the domain, and then hold them hostage for those who are looking. NetSol introduced “temp-hold” to thwart squatters and give your client a chance to buy the domain they intended. I don't work for NetSol, so I have no idea if this is their rationale, but the squatter problem is real. Take extra care whose WHOIS you use.

    And how, exactly, is this any different? (Other than the fact that NetSol doesn't have to come up with any clever ways to watch availability requests on their own darn website before they auto-buy the domain and hold it hostage for those who are looking).
