The World's Riskiest Web Domains

What makes a domain more appealing to the Web's evil-doers? Price and anonymity. Spammers must constantly change domains to avoid filtering and blacklisting by e-mail service providers, anti-spam programs and Internet service providers. Registration costs, while often less then $10 a site, quickly multiply. That's why Tokelau, which gives out domains for free, may be a popular hideout for dubious sites.
