As mentioned, I checked WHOIS late the other night after reading ximora's statement. But his information was truly incorrect as of the other night.
Okay, then let us all leave it "as of the other night" . . . can you accept that the information Ximora posted was true as she found it at the time she ran the search? This way neither one of you is "right" or "wrong".
There are ways to make an MLM business work with little money. However that way takes time and not money. In general, one should treat an MLM like a business. If you can't afford to start a business, then be a customer and enjoy the products of whatever company you choose to buy from.
I myself have been in MLM businesses before, and I have to say from personal experience that it takes a lot of work to "break even" in a lot of them, especially when they are encouraging you to purchase leads as you said that you have done. Many of them present themselves as a easy way to make the same amount of money or more than you would if you had a "traditional" job . . . this is where I have a problem with MLM, because if it really were that easy to make that amount of money on a regular basis, long term, then everyone would join . . . and if everyone joined, there would be no one left to add to your downline.
MLM's are a numbers game . . . if you would like to take that risk and play those numbers, then we wish you the best of luck . . . but those of us who have been there and tried that have learned for ourselves that a "traditional" job is an easier and less stressful way to support ourselves and our families.
