In recent years, many Internet users have become aware that when domain names expire (after their original registrants forget, fail, or otherwise decline to renew them), the domain names may be reregistered by others.This feature of the management of the domain name system might be thought to be desirable since it allows and facilitates a turnover of names from those uninterested in using them to those who in fact do seek to put them to active use.To that end, I welcome and appreciate the submission of examples of such domains.While a full policy analysis is beyond the scope of the current project, available data provides some guidance to those who are concerned by the prospect of unexpected changes in domain registration, particularly when such changes entail significant changes in the type of content available at a particular web address.
DNS zone files, default HTTP response pages, and WHOIS contact information reflect that a firm called Domain Strategy ( operates some 4000 domain names that all redirect to a page called "Tina's Free Live Webcam" (henceforth, "Tina") available at (warning: sexually-explicit content).
In a casual inspection, none of these categories seems to properly characterize the content available from the "Tina's Webcam" site.
Many of the Tina domains are or have previously been very popular.
Finally, many of the domains have character strings that suggest the presence of content quite different from the content ultimately presented after a redirect to the Tina site.
For example, americanmuseumofnaturalhistory.com, aplusparents.com, babysitters.com, bicyclebills.com, childrens-media.org, childrenwithaids.org, familyconnection.net, freecipro.com, fraudindex.com, harvardfootball.org, jackson-family.com, minnesotamom.com, napa-auto-parts.com, oceanicmuseum.com, ourchildstoys.com, ridgefieldhighschool.com, and each suggest the availability of a certain kind of content other than sexually-explicit images.
