Why Phishing Domains Are Worthless

Everyone knows phishing domains are bad. They have given IDNs a bad name since the early stages of the rollout. Yet, many domainers still register these domains thinking they are worth something. They claim that just because these domains CAN be used for phishing doesn't mean that they will be. Yet they usually cannot come with a better use for the domains besides "great SEO potential". To that I say baloney. For every "phishing" domain listed for sale, anyone can make up dozens that look similar and have just as much "SEO potential".

Case in point:

pokęr.com is available
pókęr.com is available
pokeř.com is available
pőkěr.com is available

The list is very long. If someone wanted a poker.com look-a-like, they could get one themselves. Just because you think these names are worth something does not make it so. These type of domains have no place on this forum.
