MSN Preview Cache

    Remember the preview cache with the Yahoo! Email?

    It was just some random guy who happened to realize that MSN hadn't registered the domain.

    I emailed them to ask, and here is the reply:

    "
    well , I don't work for MSN , I am just like you , I simply visited the web site , clicked on the "cached" link and found out the domain doesn't exists!



    i then tried to register the domain for fun , and guess what ?



    Bingo, I was able to register it!



    I used the free counter to count how many people are clicking on cached.

    SEMrush

    MSN has realized my trick and changed the cached URL to " msncache.com".



    This is the all story.



    I am really surprised MSN didn't register the domain name, but at the same time , they were using it!



    Best regards

    Funny.
