The second news about Chile’s horrific earthquake got out on Saturday, domainers around the world rushed to their computers to get their hands on possibly valuable domains. Some of the names registered include earthquakechile.com, chileanearthquake.com, and donatechileearthquake.com.
These domains will probably be sold on eBay or other auction sites very soon to cash-in on the post-quake hype. It’s a shame to see people take advantage of a situation like this to make money. Most of the names registered, take chile-earthquake.org for instance, will probably earn their “investors” little or no money.
