NameFind, managers of the GoDaddy-owned portfolio of domains, lost the UDRP for the domain YouPon.com.
A typo of the popular adult destination YouPorn, the domain was acquired by GoDaddy as part of the Vertical Axis portfolio. GoDaddy acquired that domain portfolio for up to $50 million dollars along with another portfolio. Source: DNW.
YouPon.com is parked at Uniregistry with PPC ads related to adult content. There’s no doubt that the typo-traffic was massive.
In the ensuing UDRP, NameFind consented to the domain’s transfer, leading to a quick decision by the sole panelist.
