Sub Domains Pretending To Be Full Domains Wnen is a Full price Domain not...

Recommended Posts

An offer appeared in a magazine here recently.

The advertisement was a "get a good domain name here" and for a reasonable sum offered you



(if I remember correctly-may have been net or something similar)


Looks good, when you find the name you want at "myname.co.nz" is already taken.


But if you look at the URL the domain is actually NZ.COM and all they were offering is a sub-domain and redirect off that domain. And still wanted full price for it.


Anyone else seen this practice in other domain areas?

To us experienced internet users, I guess we can spot that outrageous scam immediately. But I suppose that are quite a number of internet users who are unaware of technical stuff and will fall for such tricks. Isn't it?
