Have you ever tried going to airtel.com domain name. If you have not…try it now – The name is forwarded to vodafone website. Yes, it may be a spanish Vodafone website, it still is the competitor’s website !
Nice domain-jacking I must say..
But can’t Airtel lay claim on the domain, I think not. if you see the snapshot above, the domain was registered way back in 1998, probably when airtel was not in existence.
Airtel must be loosing huge amount of traffic due to this domain forwarding. However, Vodafone has not taken undue advantage of owning this domain or they would have forwarded it to Vodafone Indian website – that sure would have been something :)
Now I am not sure how many of you already know about this, but I found our just very recently…
