    For me it just shows one of those stupid search pages that slightly relates to what you were searching for when you get when you enter the wrong web extension (such as .com instead of .net).

    The guy who owns gbatemp.com (his site) is a domain squatter. He buys a whole lot of domains (over 600,000 ATM) in the hope that he may be able to sell one of them for a lot of money.
    WHOIS info for gbatemp.com

    Three whole sections, all titled "related searches". Yeah, that sounds legit.

    Sidenote: Awww, now we can't go to .com and start charging membership fees! *kicks the dog*

    Engine Room with Cyan, watching him learn.
    I got a horribly slow loading hotels.com flash ad featuring cheesy stop-motion claymation figures. I tried to back-page back to temp and it gave me one of those annoying "are you sure you want to leave?" dialog boxes, lol. YES!

    Looks like it's sedoparked.

    It's a system that relies on the traffic a site gets to gain money from the advertising.
