Have I Been Squatted URL Website

This is interesting. Came across this TLDR news about a site that can help you detect squatters to your domain. It takes a given domain and tests it against a ton of permutations of possible domain names that look similar to the one provided.

I did a test on nygcinstitute.com and it turns out that nygcinstitute.org, which is not ours, points to zoni.edu. I wonder if Zoni felt threatened by our school. ZONI is a big ESL school, probably the biggest in the country, I wonder if they paid to get this done or if they have someone on the inside doing this, pointing all possible competitors sites to their site instead.
