In an act reminiscent of the Verisign Sitefinder act of 2003, whereupon all traffic to non-existent domains was routed to the Verisign portal, Roadrunner - one of the biggest cable networks in the US - has started trapping typo-traffic and redirecting it to its own portal!
See attached images.
Sure Acro, blame your own bad spelling on big business...typical commi liberal slander!
The problem is this was turned on by default. I turned it off.
As for my spelling, I actually found out about it by entering a .co.uk address, that took me to the portal. The screenshot URL was entered for illustration purposes.
yeah shame on them for wanting to make money, how dare they! bass turds! lol
I'm buying credit, banking, loan, insurance related generics in .com, .net, .org with high search volumes/traffic. Will consider typos too! - PLEASE PM with name, info, & asking price!
AT&T is not doing it yet but I'm sure they'll follow suit, once one of these companies gets it in their mind, others will follow (usually rather quickly).
I'll laugh if it takes me to a sedo parked page, though.
You can always install DNS server in your home network, set it to do recursive DNS lookup, and use that server. Or install it in your desktop (localhost).
I simply turned the feature off. Luckily it offers that option and it's not shoved down our throats. However, the average Joe Browser who is not technically minded, that's where he will end up landing at.
No, but still - it's enabled by default. I am pretty sure they introduced this "feature" in the past 48 hours or so. I also noticed they're re-routing and renaming their entire network nodes.
