Harbor Freight Promoting Its .Tools Domain Name

A tweet caught my eye this afternoon, and I want to draw attention to it. As you may have been hearing, the US and likely elsewhere is dealing with a shortage of personal protective equipment. This is especially problematic in for first responders and medical staff at hospitals in many parts of the country. In fact, the US has turned to uncustomary sources for PPE supplies.

This afternoon, a company called Harbor Freight Tools announced it would be donating its entire inventory of PPE, including N95 masks, gloves, and face shields. The announcement was made via the company’s Twitter account:

This is a great move by Harbor Freight Tools, and this bit of positive news is worth of highlighting on its own. However, there was something else I noticed when I saw the tweet. Harbor Freight Tools is linking to its .Tools domain name to forward hospitals to the form for requesting the PPE.

It looks like Harbor Freight Tools uses HF.Tools as a url shortener for all of its social media. The links forward to the company’s longstanding HarborFreight.com website. It looks like the brand match HarborFreight.Tools domain name is registered, but the domain name does not resolve. Because of GDPR, I can not tell if the company owns that domain name or not.

Kudos to Harbor Freight Tools for this offer to hospitals. I am sure it will be greatly appreciated.
