    I found a typo domain thats one letter off from a MAJOR major website. Its would be an easy mistake too, the key is one key down from the actual one. My question is can typo domains be profitable?

    buy it and find out, you have a WHOLE YEAR with it for a max of like $12, if you cant make $12 with ANY domain in a year, just please get off the internet.

    I'd say go for it and if the domain proves to get no traffic then just build it out for something else. There seems to be little rhyme or reason and very little data has been published about what statistically the most common typos are.
