Last night Elliotsblog.com, reported a “huge surge in domain names at Godaddy.com” which contained the name of Whitney Houston.
However the article goes on to state that “Hundreds of related domain names have been registered in fewer than 24 hours since news of her death hit the media.”
While its pathetic to see anyone registering these type of domain names, I found the report of only a few hundred domain registrations as good news that maybe people have by in large learned the rules of the domain world.
You might remember that when Michael Jackson died there were reports of 11,000 related domain names registered through Godaddy.com in the first week, with 3,700 registered in the first day.
There were also reports after Michael Jackson’s death reports of over 400 domain names up for sale on ebay.
A search on eBay.com today only showed 48 domains with Whitney Houston for sale.
While its never good to see these types of domain names registered and put up for sale, so far the numbers are a lot better then Michael Jackson.
