Youth Net UK was celebrating last week after ending a four-year battle to buy the domain name of a Saudi Arabian website that advertised would-be brides.
The charity set up the do-it.org.uk volunteer site in 2000, but whenever newspapers referred to the site as do-it.org without including the '.uk' suffix, people searching for volunteer opportunities were led to a photo library of potential brides, who can be contacted by email.
Since then, it has faced a frustrating struggle to secure the do-it.org domain name.
Wranglings with the Saudi businessman that owned the name ended finally last week, with the charity forking out £1,131 for it.
"Both sites pair people off with opportunities, but that is where the similarity ends," commented Maddy Heil, the charity's communications manager.
