MONICA, SCHMONICA! WHAT’S IN A (DOMAIN) NAME?

By CBR Staff Writer

Monicagate, Zippergate, Fornigate, call it what you will, but as usual, the internet is the best place to see people trying to exploit a scandal; after all, Matt Drudge’s story did appear first on AOL. A bunch of companies tried to be first out of the blocks to register domain names pertinent to Miss Lewinsky and her alleged encounters with the big banana. Don’t try and register these domains, they’re already gone: monica- lewinsky.com; monicalewinsky.com; monica-lewinsky.net; monicalewinsky.net; monicalewinskyprofile.com; monicagate.com. And a special prize goes to the person in Tisbury, Massachusetts who presumably has not been reading the reports too carefully, and went ahead and registered monicalewinski.com. Well done!
