Contesting Ownership of ‘’

Below is letter I sent to the domain registrar of I do not own that domain. If you go there, you will see a static website that is built to earn from ads from visitors who are looking for but mistakenly go to that domain instead.

Good day,
My name is Gabriel H. Mercado.
I am a Filipino businessman residing in the Philippines.

I am writing you in connection with a domain that has apparently been registered with your service:

I am contesting ownership of this domain for the ff. reasons:

  • I own a website called, along with several other websites residing in subdomains of the main domain: (please check other sites at my signature below).
  • has been in existence since August 2006. Our first post is linked here.
  •, due to its unique url, is often mistakenly referred to as ‘kikayexchange dot com’.

Further to this, I believe that the owner of deliberately purchased the domain to earn advertising revenue from people who are mistakenly lead to it. Here are my reasons:

  • is a blog that discusses fashion, shopping, beauty and health tips and similar topics. It is meant for a female audience. It regularly receives 700+ hits per day.
  • is a static page containing advertising content that is similarly targeted towards the same audience (pls. see attached).

I hope to bring your attention to this situation. Thank you.
Sincerely, Gabriel H. Mercado


Let’s see how this goes.
