ebay.be targeted by typosquatters

secureserver.net  is also specialised in ebay.be  typosquatting (7)

 

the same is the case for other financial institutions and transactional sites.

 

This is why dns.be should set up a list with the financial and other important domains that should have a greater typosquatting protection than others. This is the only thing you can do if you want people to have confidence in e-business and egov.

 

Now anybody can buy them and do whatever with them.

By the way if it is a belgian domainname is it under belgian law if the server is outside of belgian territory. Should be normal. We can control the dns, so we can re redirect the domainname, can't we ?

domainresellers trying to sell typosquatted domains they got free

http://www.domeinenbank.nl/   212.79.243.144
sells typosquatted .be domains

http://www.eurosrs.com   81.17.53.23

One example of clearly illegal typosquatting is that can be used for phishing http://www.citbank.be  that is hosted at 195.207.48.19 of nucleus.be

 

This is a direct violation of the belgian law on domainnames. As nucleus.be is a belgian firm and domeinenbank.nl a dutch one, they could be prosecuted, but the law has no punishment foreseen (the american has).

 

But maybe they should loose their license to sell and host belgian domainnames, shouldn't that be an administrative 'clean up your own mess' punishment that dns.be could take

 

And http://www.pandor.be/  (204.13.161.2) that also hosts a number of belgian typosquatted domainnames is in fact oversee.net
with the already well known pop up casalemedia.com, information.com, revenue.net  and they do in fact some msn.be typosquatting

As a belgian domainname used for redirecting typosquatted domainnames they are in my view in contradiction with belgian law.

 

And what will combell.be do with the following situation.

Their free pages are hosting (what is in a word) a certain number of domains are sites that are clearly against belgian domainlaw like eebay.be and msen.be
Maybe they should disactivate them
