A CDE Definition
Also called "typosquatting," it refers to taking advantage of common typos users make when entering a Web address (URL) into their browser. A domain name that is a misspelled version of a popular domain name is legally registered. Whenever someone misspells the URL, the site is accessed, which may offer a competitive product, an entirely different product, a pile of ads or be a soapbox for a cause. See cybersquatting, page hijacking and hijacking.
