Cybersquatting or cyberpiracy was an unexpected and accidental consequence of the domain name system of the Internet. When the first computers began connecting to each other in the 1960s, a form of identification was needed to access the various systems. Initially the networks were composed of only a few computer systems, which were associated primarily with the US Department of Defense. However, as the number of connections grew, it became clear that a more effective system was needed to regulate and maintain the domain name paths through the network (http://www.domainavenue.com).
