Hi.

Had seen a website (can't find the website anymore), which registered domain names like this:

Example:
abc.com
abc1.com
abc2.com

Why they've registered these domain names with numbers?

What is the purpose?

What are the advantages?
What are the disadvantages?

What must I search on the internet to find some information about this?

Thanks.

I don't know the exact answer to this, but brand protection feels like a reason. If your company is "ABC", you may reg ABC1, 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9...

That said, that seems weak. Strengthening your brand you'd be on a better course securing the NET, ORG, CO, US, IO, XYZ...assuming you already have your COM. IMO
