Word of the day

Todays word of the day consists of an entire industry vocabulary. Yes, there are so many words being coined in the domain name industry that it is easy to lose track of them. A recent report by Emily Taylor for Nominet (UK) entitled Domaining, dropcatching and the secondary market also introduced and defined the words domainer, cybersquatting, typosquatting, domain tasting, domain kiting and of course reverse domain name hijacking. We can add brandjacking to this, especially relevant since the resolution of the case resolved recently in favour of the brand owner, Tina Arena.
