    Today as I was on my way to BHW when I accidentally typed in bhw.com

    I got to this SEO Services site and then realized I had typed in the wrong url. Then I thought to myself it's a shame BHW.com doesn't redirect to blackhatworld.com

    *** AN IDEA WAS BORN ***

    Use the windows host file to redirect BHW.COM to BlackHatWorld.com

    Here's the code:
    Add these two lines below:
    Code:
    199.59.60.205 www.bhw.com
    199.59.60.205 bhw.com
    
    You can locate the host file here:
    C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc

    And there you have it! Less typing, more BHW! :)

    It's their own business,but I guess anyone goes there before altering the hosts files,so it's preatty fair thread I'd say :)

    Bhw should've bought that domain name...

    The most visited in chrome is also an option.

    Just open chrome and middle mouse the 4 most visited and all the sites that I wanted is open.

    But thx for the share, am sure that there will be a lot of people using other browsers that will love it.

    Don't think there is a lot of BHW guru's using IE anymore. lol.

    hummm... strange website

    Good things
    * great domain name
    * founded in 1994
    * 2 offices

    Strange:
    * their own website could be better
    * the construction of the website is horrible, for example there is no way how to return to home page from their blog
    * their team (stock photo) is on at least on 5 other websites, proof -> http://goo.gl/wrDbh (unacceptable for such a company)
    * their youtube channel hasn't got any videos
    * their twitter account has: 0 tweets | 2 following & 4 followers
    ... and the list goes and goes on (too lazy to continue)

    ----

    Conclusion: they are not BHW members for 100%
