Well, that’s what the latest batch of freshly registered domain names by the GOP suggests.

bobcorkerforpresident.org
corker2016.com
corker2016.net
corker2016.org
corkerforpresident.com
corkerforpresident.net
corkerforpresident.org

I won’t bother posting the WHOIS details since they are covered by an Privacy Protect service.

Microsoft acquires piggybank domain names.

Piggy ?

Microsoft, the company with a record of registering weird domain names.
Their latest additions :

nationalpiggybank.com
nationalpiggybank.net
nationalpiggybank.us
Now the previous owner is no stranger to Microsoft judging this case study.

http://www.microsoft.com/casestudies/Case_Study_Detail.aspx?casestudyid=4000008226

Still it is unclear what MS is going todo with their national piggy bank domain names otherwise then redirecting them to their search engine BING.

HP registers sleazydomain. com domain name

I am actually suprised the domain name was not registered. The was registered back in

Microsoft registers firefoxwithmsn.com domain names.

Microsoft registers firefoxwithmsn.com domain names.

Image representing Firefox as depicted in Crun...

Image via CrunchBase

Fire, water, fire, water.. Internet explorer, firefox.
I doubt the latest zeroday exploits for Internet Explorer decide the MS to team up with Firefox for MSN but an odd registration it is.
As per usual the domain names point to Bing search results for whatever reason. And why did they also register the .NET version ? (firefoxwithmsn.net).

So why MS decided to register firefox MSN related domain names is beyond me. Fire, water……..

Lucas Arts registers StarWars First Assault domain names ?

Not 100% sure if the below domain names are registered by Lucas Arts or not :

Star Wars episode 3 coin

  • starwarsfa.com
  • starwarsfa.net
  • starwarsfirstassault.com
  • starwarsfirstassault.net
  • swfirstassault.com
  • swfirstassault.net

But i am 99% they are for the following reasons. Lucas Arts always uses CSC as a registrar to register their domain names.

The other reason is, that only an idiot registers Starwars related domain names. Lucas Arts protects their trademarks and will not rest before they won.

I am 100% NOT sure why they registered these first assault domain names. New movie ? Cartoon ? Game ? Wookiee shaped condoms ? I have no idea.

Here’s the WHOIS output (not that it says much).

Google registers miraisearch. com domain name, What is a Miraisearch ?

Good question. I asked myself the samething when i noticed that Google registered the domain name Mirasearch.com.

Google Chrome

I guess it has something todo with future…. Now that is an educated guess at best. Wiki says : Mirai (未来) is a Japanese word meaning “the future” and may refer to: People, Fiction, Food, Technology, Text. The Big Q is why did big G register miraisearch.com ?

New search engine ? New technology ? New Whatever ?

Valve software working on a movie called game life ? Domain name registrations suggest so.

Turns out that lil then a month ago Valve Software (the dudes from Steam and halflife)

English: Orange lambda, symbol of video game H...

registered the following domain names :

gamerlifemovie.com
gamerlifethemovie.com

Now the question is why and how and what ? If you google the above domain names you will get some results about Halflife the movie and some non game related stuff that Valve is working on.  So basically i am pretty clueless why Valve registered these domain names. Valve is not a company who just registers a bunch of domain names for defensive purposes.  Usually they register domain names for a project or a new game. In this case it would be a movie ?

Guess we’ll have to wait and see (unless Gabe wants to reveal more info, mail me !).

The WHOIS record is as follows :

Registrant:
Valve Corporation
ATTN GAMERLIFETHEMOVIE.COM
care of Network Solutions
PO Box 459
Drums, PA. US 18222

Domain Name: GAMERLIFETHEMOVIE.COM

Did Facebook buy the domain name worldhack. com ?

Not sure if Facebook did.

DNjournal.com reported last week that worldhack.com was sold through Sedo for 5000 USD.

The registrant is still shows SEDO as the registrant, wich is normal when it comes to sales that go through Sedo and currently the domain name is still with the current domain name Registrar.

What is odd however is the fact the Registrar WHOIS still lists the internettraffic.com nameservers but the Verisign WHOIS records show the following :

Name Server: NS3.FACEBOOK.COM

facebook engancha
Name Server: NS4.FACEBOOK.COM
Name Server: NS5.FACEBOOK.COM
Status: ok
Updated Date: 08-aug-2012

Now it could be a fluke, or someone who has control of the domain name is pulling a silly joke or… Facebook bought the domain name worldhack.com. Hard to tell, since anyone in control can assign name servers even if they are bogus or not.

I guess we’ll just have to see and monitor the domain name to see who the new registrant will be.

Update 17/08/2012. WHOIS has been changed to a new registrant, but the Privacy protect handle is not telling much Smilie: ;)

I got the feeling however that FB is not involved.

New WHOIS out put.
