    Typosquatting is trying to take advantage of mistakes that users make when typing web addresses into web browsers. Typically this involves registering a domain that contains common typing errors for a real domain, then trying to make money from it.

    Typosquatters are people who register domains with typos in them.

    For example, the popular site is victim of typosquatters:,,,,,,,, and as of 2007[update], are all websites which contain pop-up ads, spyware/adware downloads, and ad-generating search engines.
