Typosquatting helps you monitor and identify permutations of your domains that are at risk of typosquatting. Depending on your domain, this can result in hundreds or even thousands of potential permutations.

You may, for example, have a project to find and register all the unregistered replacement permutations. Without UpGuard, this would be difficult to do. With UpGuard, you can simply add the domain you want to monitor and then use our filtering to find all replacement-based permutations.

Filtering by permutation type

Let’s use this as an example to learn how to use filtering. To find this information, add the domain to typosquatting, click into it, and then click Apply filters.

This will bring up a modal that allows you to filter by permutation type using either Match Any or Do Not Include. Choose the Match Any option, type in replacement, and click Apply.

This will bring up a filtered list of results that match the type replacement. If you want to find all the permutations that are unregistered, click Unregistered.

Filtering by DNS record

You can also filter by URL or A/NS/MX records by using the free text search bar. This can help identify domains on your own infrastructure in order to ignore them as safe, or domains on untrusted hosting providers.

Sorting by registration date

Domain names that are very short or are common words may generate lots of results, and particularly lots of other legitimately registered websites. The whois registration date column can be sorted to see those that are oldest– and more likely not to pose a threat– and those that are newest– and possibly registered for an attack
