Here is some info some may find useful, it good to know although it may not effect many its still good to be aware of it

http://ask-leo.com/opening_phishing_holes_with_new_toplevel_domains.html

If you really don't understand than basically what its means is you are now able to buy custom domain names, so as you know this site is called modsonline.com. Someone can now buy a domain with something like www.mods.online and clone this site, so you may visit that site and lose all your personal details if you type it in.

What this is really drawing to our attention is the stuff after the .(dot)

For instance .com .net .org etc etc. These are the actual TLD or top level domain.

This would cost $185,000.00 to register a new one of your liking as is shown below...

.ray
.welshy
.mystic
.microsoft

The list goes on as far as the imagination but it is very expensive.

The point though is very valid. Dont get caught by these new possibilities because the potential for danger is very real. Good thread Mystic!!
