Domain Sniper

A Domain Sniper (a.k.a. Domain Sniping) is an individual or organization that searches for and registers well-known or popular website domains whose registration has lapsed by accident or forgetfulness. The Domain Sniper will then offer to sell the domain back to the original registrants for a ‘price’.

In order to encourage the original registrants to pay for the return of their domains, some Domain Snipers will have the URL redirect visitors to a pornography or adult content website to create embarrassment and motivation.
