A friend of mine from akubetul.com point out to me, a Southeast Asian Games Korat website that’s look kindda weird since the theme is green. So I run some analytical investigation (CSI) hehe..:)
1. The fake website look like these : seagameskorat2007.com
- It has a lot of Adsense Ads and a lot of ads
- Has some info on the game, but not that detail
- The original website of South East Asian Game : 2007seagames.com
See, the domain name is quite the same.The site owner sure has done his home work well.Similar domain name, make reader accidentally jump to his site. In addition, the sea games currently in Korat, Thailand will be search and goggled by thousand of user in South East Asia including all participant county like Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam and etc

The 24th SEA Games will be held from 6th to 15th December 2007. The main venue of the 24th SEA Games will be at Korat, in the north-eastern part of Thailand. However, a number of sports and/or events, which has no facilities in Korat, will be held in Bangkok and Chonburi (Pattaya). The sports to be held in Chonburi (Pattaya) are Sailing and Wind-Surfing, Rowing, Canoeing, Traditional Boat Race, Triathlon and Duathlon and Equestrian. Sports to be held in Bangkok are Baseball, Handball, Hockey, Lawn Bowls, Polo, Skeet & Trap events of Shooting.
Maybe I’m quite excited, I run a DNS Tools to search whois from the domain name.Interestingly, this person bought the domain from Godaddy.com, and you have to run search tool at Godaddy.At first, I’m quite surprise when I found out that the owner is from US, what ?

Are you sure? I don’t think so.When I click at the registered website, I later find out , this mystery person try to hide his identity by using Domain By Proxy. Just read the tagline “Your identity is nobody’s business but OURS”
In conclusion, good idea on registering hot domain, put some Adsense, design a theme website related to the domain name and walla earn a lot of profit. So, guys who want to buy EURO2008 domain?
