#Dell grabs typo #domain DRLL.com via the #UDRP process

The domain DRLL.com was registered in 1998, and now Dell has claimed it via the UDRP process. Visually, the two domains DRLL.com and DELL.com are 75% identical, but what’s more important is how Drll.com was used as a parked domain, taking advantage of the proximity of letters “E” and “R” on the keyboard. Apparently, Drll.com […]
