If you follow politics (or the news in general), you’ve probably heard about the crotch photo that appeared on New York Congessman Anthony Weiner’s Twitter account. Dubbed “Weinergate,” this news story seems to have legs and will likely continue to stay in the news for at least the next few days.
I was curious about whether someone had jumped on the bandwagon and registered Weinergate.com. Not surprisingly, the domain name was registered, but it wasn’t a recent registration. The domain name was created in May of 2010, and it’s been owned by “Oversee Domain Management, LLC,” which I believe is an entity of Oversee.net.
The domain name appears to have expired a year after it was created, and surprisingly on June 3, while Weinergate was all over the news, the domain name changed ownership to “NameKing Expired Domain.” It’s likely that this is the status of names that aren’t renewed by the company.
At the present time, the domain name doesn’t even resolve.
