Domain Blog’s most recent article covers an issue that is close to the heart of anyone with intellectual property to protect – typo squatting.
While I can see that registering the most obvious typos makes sense, the question is where do you stop?
At what point are the typos just plain silly?
If you try out one of the online typo generators – and there are plenty to choose from – you’ll easily end up with about 30 or 40 variations on a domain string. If you then multiply that by the number of domain extensions you want to protect you can easily end up with in excess of 200 domain names that you don’t really want to register in the first place.
