UPDATE: Now Over 125 Domains Related To Boston Explosion Including “Relief” Domains

There are now at least 125 domain names that have been recently registered relating to the explosions at the Boston Marathon today and most troubling many that look like charitable domains that can be be used to raise money for the victims.

Over 20 of the domain .com/.net domains registered today sound like they could be used for fundraising efforts for the victims so we need to watch those to make sure they are only used by licensed and regulated charities.

We noted earlier today, just minutes after the reports of the explosions hit the news, domain names related to the bombings were already registered and some parked by people looking to make money off the tragedy.  While we don’t know every registrants intention, we do know historically that many of the domain names registered immediately after were done to get traffic and make money parking domains or worse.

While many of the domains were registered under privacy some of the registrants were brave enough (orstupid enough) to put their name as the registrant of these domains.

Even several “relief” domain was registered, which is especially troubling unless it was registered by a recognized charity.

As the editor of  TheDomains and as a domainer personally I hate to see these type of registrations, so here the registrant information for some of the domain names that don’t have privacy on the registrations.

Bostonexplosion.com and  bostonexplosions.com are registered to  FusionWorks LLC of Saratoga, the domain name bostonmarathonbomb.com who is registered to a Mr. Myers of Queen Anne, MD, bostonmarathonbombs.com is registered to Web Service Resource Associates inc of merritt island, Florida.

The domain bostonmarathonrelief.com was registered to Thomas Shaffer of Fort Worth, Texas.

The domain name bostonmarathonvictimfund.com and bostonmarathonvictimsrelieffund.com
were registered by Jason Ischia of Melrose, Massachusetts.

Bostonrelief2013.com was registered to Earl Sranton, of Scranton PA.

The domain names bostonmarathondonation.com,  bostonmarathondonations.com and bostonmarathonfund.com and donatetoboston.com were registered under privacy all at namecheap.com

    This is non-news. This will happen every time there is a tragedy and no amount of reporting will stop it. If anything it will give more people the idea to be prepared to waste their money on the next tragedy.
