There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Server-assisted clients like blockchain.info rely on centralized servers to do their network verification for them. Although the server can't steal the client's bitcoins directly, it can easily execute double-spending-style attacks against the client.
Advertised sites are not endorsed by the Bitcoin Forum. They may be unsafe, untrustworthy, or illegal in your jurisdiction. Advertise here.

Sometime its really hard to find differences between real and fake domain when scammers domain is almost same like original one. Specially for this one i can say that only few visitors will be able to detect this. I think domain providers can change their rules of domain selection and if they don't allow this kinda domains for their customers then phishing attempt will reduce for sure.

Bitmain have large amount of customers and its common that scammers will try their best to make some easy money by creating a website like this. Most concerning thing is that when scammers have the opportunity of purchasing almost similar looking domain like this then their success percentage get higher and hard to stop people from getting scammed. Even in your topic title its not so easy to detect the small dot above (ṅ).

By the way, good catch "Bitcoin_Arena"

It's seems like something hard to do because internet access is now almost a global thing and also almost a human right. So if domain providers decided to block characters from certain alphabets like Arabic, Chinese, Cyrillic, Hebrew etc. I am very sure it would anger people who use such alphabets and would cause a global outrage more like this anti Racism movements you see everyday.

Browsers sometimes do try to protect users from such attacks by displaying such Domain Names in Punycode. For example
1. Opera Browser


2. Google Chrome
