My son showed me that he's been going to www.disny.com, which he thought was "Disney". He's been playing games there (ie: "Club Penguin").

I can't find much useful info on Google about it. It looks like it possibly links to the real Disney site, the same way "www.googel.com" will actually take you to Google (I do it all the time).

Anyone here know anything about this one?

Thanks, in advance. ;)

Hi dsabol,
When I clicked on your disny dot com link above I got straight to disney.co.uk (legit).
My two kids also frequent Club Penguin and get excited when Captain Rock Hopper is due to visit ... beyond me I'm afraid!!

I just wondering as kids are more likely to misspell than adults, it's a worry that some sites throw up off-colour links. While some companies are wise to this as www.gooogle.com redirects to www.google.com and even this disny redirected to disney.com. Is it not expensive and futile for anyone to try to register all conceivable misspelt versions of their address sometimes.

It's not even a drop in the bucket when your revenues are over $ 4Billion a year, as it is for Disney. As it turns out, Disney also owns go.com, and both disnee.com and disney.com are redirected there.

You could get a domain name and have a website for it for as little as $6/month. If all you want is the name w/o a site so that no one else can use it, that's like $29 for three years. The names are not expensive at all, and some people have made a small living by buying up un-used, but potential domains, and waiting for for a buyer.
