The trouble with having a similar domain name to a big name website. In a story covered in Reuters, “Utube web site swamped with YouTube fans,” people seeking YouTube have been swamping the site Utube, a tubes and pipes supplier.
According to the article, the Utube site owner said he was offered $1 million for the domain name from YouTube, but he declined, hoping for $2.5 to $3 million. YouTube denied that it was offering anything for the site and it wouldn’t do that.
Amazing what trouble a company or business can run into with a similar domain name. Good luck Utube.
