somedomain.com vs somedomains.com ?

Is somedomain just trying to capture people's passwords?

I've heard some good things about somedomains.com, so I was looking into it today for a friend. I mistakenly typed 'www.somedomain.com' (no "s") in my browser, and a window came up, with name and password text boxes. Hmmmm....looked kind of funny, since there was no way to "Register here, it's free!" the way most registrars have. There were "About Us", "Home", etc buttons on the top of the screen, but none of them are hyperlinks. Hmmm..very strange. Could someone have set up that window to capture login info from people who inadvertently type somedomain.com instead of somedomains.com?

You know, that's a very real possibility. I never thought of that before. Thanks for the heads up.
