“The most valuable space in the internet is .com, which means it is also the most valuable space to carry out typosquatting. The industry’s most attractive domains for typosquatters to target are financial institutions or organizations that sell medicine. Fast-moving consumer retail goods are also popular to target, so people should be particularly careful when logging into these types of sites or receiving emails with links to them.” Russell Haworth – Chief Executive Officer at Nominet
