BBC NEWS | Business | YouTube sued by sound-alike site

Lots of people seem to be typing utube.com instead of youtube.com and getting a tubing manufacturers website instead, completely overloading their hosting. I think one option would be to set up a simple video sharing site at the same address, but it seems like they’d rather just have a new domain name.

Universal Tube & Rollform Equipment said its own website – Utube.com – had to be moved five times after millions of inadvertent hits made it crash.

The best thing about this article is the ‘Related Internet Links’ on the right hand side which include a link to Universal Tube & Rollform Equipment’s website – I’m sure that’s going to help their bandwidth costs!
