    Cheap domain names are spammers? favorites


    New report shows that spammers love some of the cheap new domain name options.
    Spammers churn through a lot of domain names. As soon as deliverability sinks with one, they move on to the next.
    That might explain this chart in Architelos? June NameSentry Abuse Report:
    [​IMG]
    The bulk of improper use of new top level domain names is spam, and this chart shows which new TLDs are being abused the most.
    See a pattern here? All of the big ones are cheap domains. In fact, all of the domains on this chart can be picked up for $2 or less at some registrars (although some only through limited time specials).
    If a spammer needs to cycle though 1,000 domains this week, paying $2 per domain vs. $8 makes a bit difference.
    You can view the entire NameSentry report here (pdf).

    There was the ultra low-cost (by those days standards) .info extension a few years back which was chiefly used for spamming purpose. Now there is everything available, even a .com, for huge 1st year discount cost of $1 or less! The 2nd year onwards cost is the normal approx $10~20+, but the 1st year's usage at less than a dollar or two is more than sufficient for the spammers, new and old.

    Most of these TLDs were free to grab a few weeks back.
