The principle of direct navigation is that people will type in a URL because they think that there should be a website using that domain.
This action has always puzzled me.
Who, what, where, why, when did anyone teach anyone this?
In the early WWW 90s days I went to schools and colleges teaching how to use the basics of the Net in the UK and never, ever saw any teacher do this. Is it an American "thing" or did someone one day accidentally type in a domain name, actaully found what they wanted and then disinformed all the newbie users?
Or was this a domaining industry marketing ploy?
