Do you think that the Typo Domains are not valuable? Think again! These companies have large number of typos registered to protect their names and also to gain the free traffic that results via typo domains. The keyword ‘domain names’ has around 134,200 monthly searches with around $21.54 CPC. This stats shows that how much a company can save dollars by having free traffic to their site with the help of the typo domains. Interestingly, all these typos will redirect a visitor to the main business website.
Lets see one-by-one the interesting typos of some of the cyberspace’s best domain name companies:
GoDaddy.com (Business domain) and the following typos redirect to its main website:
I thought GoDaddi.com is also owned by them but it’s not. It’s parked with ads on domains.
NameBright.com (Business domain) and the following typos redirect to its main website:
NameCheap.com (Business domain) and the following typos redirect to its main website:
Interestingly NameCheap does not own NameCheaps.com which is parked with live domain ads
Networksolutions does not own Netwrksolutions.com which is parked with live ads
Also, companies like Moniker owns Monicer.com; 1and1.com owns oneandone.com and the list goes on. Domain companies understand the value of typo domains and this helps them in registering typo domains and diverting that traffic to their main business website.
It serve as a free traffic and also helps them in not having trademark issues with their names. But, this is not the case with most of the other companies who are not related with domain names.
Well, in order to protect your brand from trademark issues and to gain free traffic – typo domains are helpful. But, the same is not good if you register commercial trademark violation typos such as Fasebook.com or Googal.com
