Ok, for full disclosure, I looked up up "1&1" web hosting, and they are one of the larger hosters. Still very suspicious. It seems every rock we look under turns up something new. Not many dead-ends in this case.
Kip's dental office (kiplittondds.com) is hosted by the same place.
Yeah "1&1" is just a host company. But the whois records for these sites do show a lot of activity on the same dates. For example they show worldrecordrun.com and westwyomingmarathon.com were both created 5/6/2010. And they show worldrecordrun.com, westwyomingmarathon.com, pinehills5krace.com, and sandyspringshalfmarathon.com were all "last changed" on 12/24/2010. Honestly I don't know the ins & outs of domain name records - I just typed in the names at one of the many whois sites - but to me it is weird.
