I always wondered what would happen if I searched for a domain name and then before I finished the checkout, the name was no longer available. I mean I guess it is probably not that likely, but it is certainly not impossible. This way, if you search for a domain name, NSI pre-registers it so that when you goto buy it you can be assured that no one else will have purchased it already.

Advertising may be described as the science of arresting the human intelligence long enough to get money from it.
