Typosquatting is also called as URL hijacking.

It is a Black Hat SEO Technique which is usually practiced to take advantage of an established trademark or the popularity of a brand name. Here, the hijacker creates a website which looks absolutely similar to the original website of an established brand name but the domain name has a small typographical difference.

When the visitors visit this website, they do not realize that this is not the original one.
Such websites may at times sells the products which are in competition with the original website but one of the big purposes is to steam your information like passwords, credit card details etc.
