Redirecting traffic

Web address re-directions are in the news.

Emily Fredrix of Associated Press examines what has happened to the websites of some of the big box stores that have closed their physical stores. Some people apparently think these stores are still selling merchandise and are placing orders with them. There's nothing wrong with that as long as you are aware of the fact that you are actually doing business with a different company.

Also in the news, Jay Leno has won the right to obtain a web address that was owned by someone else. "Having a legitimate reason" to register a website now seems to be a requisite for web address ownership. The former owner was using the site to redirect Web surfers to his real estate business For those who have registered web addresses as investments, they may now be at risk of losing their money.
