    it is worth to buy a domain like this "wwwexample.com" if "example.com" is getting about 11.16M visitors each month ?

    I want to use the domain wwwexample.com for parking , how many visitors u think I will got from it if the original domain is getting Millions of visitors each months ?

    thanks alot

    generally today unless you have expertise and right tools (usually paid tools) there is no money in parking. except for the few lucky regs you may make that do make some (small) money.

    11 million visitors per month means nothing for anything.

    there is no point in guessing for you or others.. u just need to open account on bodis and put your domains there to test. thats how you know

    knowing the exact traffic of a site you don't own is next to impossible unless the owner shares it with you...so, the real question is, 11mil visits according to whom? and how much do you trust your source?

    Please understand that you are not the only one that is into that kind of typo traffic. You'll find that there is *a lot* and fierce competition and *that* is what will probably be your main problem, ie. not finding a domain that might bring you traffic but managing to secure it.

    that's not acurate
    and still it's not worth
    also there is risk of getting sued...

    those are totally inaccurate in regards to traffic measurement.
    Sure you can gauge *if* a site has high or low traffic (and that is not always correct as well) but in no way you can measure the *real* traffic a site has by using those services.

    the question if you know that domain " wwwfacebook.com " is available , do you will buy it ?
    because in my opinion " wwwfacebook.com " is getting alot of traffic because alot of people who trying to visit facebook are forgeting the dot "."
    i Hope you understant what I mean !

    this is just an example

    if you still insist on 11M visitor per month...
    did you know how those visitor came from? if those visitor came from backlink or searchengine means no typo at all and your www's domain not gonna get any of those traffic

    almost every webmaster were set their naked domains forwarded or cname as www version, thats mean if i type domain only without www i'm still to be forwarded to the exactly the same website. Considering human behaviour, why would i typing additional "www" if without it i'm still go to the website....

    and still some other reason and the conclusion were remain the same : not worth

    That's not an example since you mentioned exact traffic in numbers and not what sites we all know have traffic.
    If you base your traffic estimation on sites that we all know have traffic then, no matter what kind of typo you use on sites in the top traffic tier like facebook, you will always get some traffic and chances are it will also be profitable... ofc that's not the only thing you'll get as @IMEZI correctly mentioned.

    are you sure it's the same person owned it since 2006?
    are you sure the wwwreddit.com not belong to one of founder of reddit.com?

    i'm not saying corporation or company.... but personal....
    here is some logic, if one of the founder were having wwwreddit.com perhaps he/she having immunity from getting sued... or he/she has signed some sort of mou with reddit company/corporation
    shortly, the owner of wwwreddit were have some decent legal backup

    while you were didnt have any legal backup

    also dont forget that every company were different, some will take legal action thoroughly such as LEGO, while some other were just ignoring...

    I don't think so , if Reddit own wwwreddit.com they will make sure that when you visit that domain you will be forward to reddit.com , and not to be forwared to a parking page with ads

    Like facebook , they own wwwfacebook.com , if you visit that domain you will transfered to facebook.com

    Do you see how many people are bidding on typos of www on SEDO
    they are alot of demand of typos of www because they get alot of traffic, and this is legal.
    PS: the orignal domain must be famous and get Millions of visitors

    I hope you guys understand me now ,why I want to buy a domain that start with www

    that you talk is Reddit as company and Facebook as company
    can you differentiate between company and personal?
    could you guarantee 100% that wwwreddit.com not owned by some personal who has decent power and or backup for handling lawsuits?

    let say that's the owner of wwwreddit.com were truly some random personals without any power or backup at all. The one you said having 11M visitor is it the very same company of Reddit? Different company will react differently....

    The one I said having 11M visitor , is not a big company and they are not located in US or europe and they know nothing about these stuff, Trust me
    and even if they sued me I can then give them the domain for free without any problem :xf.grin:

    yes indeed, there is a lot of stupidos scratching for some coin without knowing the risk

    it's your own call to buy whatever you want, if you succeed you could have the money by your self, if you failed that would be your self who has to suffer the looses, and as additional if there is any lawsuits you were still alone to handle or even had to pay for the damages

    sure, you already peek to the brain of the owner... LOL and for how long... how bout if someone came to your www domain and then he/she complaining to the real company...

    give the domain for free? yeah that would be so simple just in case the company forgot to hire a good lawyer LOL Once i got caught on UDRP regarding LEGO trademark, yes i'm giving the domain to them but i already got charged 50$ by domain registrar UDRP administration handling
