#OpenWeStand: The Extensions GoDaddy Chose to Register

GoDaddy launched a new campaign to offer resources to its business clients to help stay open during these uncertain, but certainly challenging times. The campaign is called “Open We Stand,” and it uses the #OpenWeStand social media hashtag:

Because GoDaddy is a domain name registrar, I was curious to know what extensions GoDaddy registered to match the #OpenWeStand campaign. Using DomainTools, I can see the company registered 5 OpenWeStand domain names:

  • OpenWeStand.com
  • OpenWeStand.net
  • OpenWeStand.org
  • OpenWeStand.info
  • OpenWeStand.us

It looks like all of these domain names are new registrations, so they were not purchased via the aftermarket. Using the Whois History tool at DomainTools, it would appear that none of these domain names were previously registered by anyone before GoDaddy registered them.

All of these domain names are forwarding to the GoDaddy COVID-19 Small Business Support section of GoDaddy’s website. This is not surprising since this is a GoDaddy initiative and the company would want to direct visitors to its own resources rather than creating a new website for the campaign.

It’s not surprising that GoDaddy registered these domain names, but I thought it would be interesting to have a look at the domain names GoDaddy chose to register because it could have been sufficient to just register the .com and maybe the .org.
