How do favsys.net and amazonaws.com visit my new sites so quickly?

I noticed most every time we put a brand new website online it immediately gets visited by bots from both favsys.net and amazonaws.com

Sometimes they visit the new site even before I have a chance to look at it myself. How in the world is that possible?

A secondary issue is why do they want to visit the site in the first place?

Also wondering if favsys.net has something to do with the favicon img? The favsys.net url does not work.

How do they even know the new site started resolving?

One way I can think of is that they have a feed of newly registered domains and start visiting them straight away.

P.S. amazonaws don't have a very good reputation as per "amazonaws.com plays host to wide variety of bad bots" [webmasterworld.com...]
