    Hundreds of Whitney Houston domains registered after death
    Sunday, February 12th, 2012 Singer?s death prompts speculators to register Whitney Houston related domain names.

    Speculators have registered a flurry of domain names related to Whitney Houston since the singer?s death yesterday. According to domain registrar GoDaddy, 325 Whitney Houston related domain names were registered in fewer than 24 hours after her death. You?ll find a lot of Houston domain names on eBay. And most of them are worthless.

    You can pick up
    Code:
    WhitneyHoustonDiedAt48.COM 
    for $500. Looking for something even more speculative than a domain to take advantage of her death? Try
    Code:
    WhitneyHoustonHeartAttack.com 
    for $21 million. My guess on this one is the seller just wants attention to the site they link to in their eBay listing. For a starting bid of 99 cents you can have a shot at what the seller describes as an ?Authentic Whitney Houston Domain?. What?s an authentic domain? I don?t know, but the seller is trying to offload
    Code:
    Whitney-Houston-Legacy.com.
    A search for ?Whitney Houston Domain? returns 41 hits on eBay right now.

    Funny - all these domains will be worthless in a week. The masses will simply lose interest, and she's no Michael Jackson.

    Even though she's RIP, I wont be rude and say shes no Michael Jackson. But even the Michael Jackson domains became worthless in a week.

    Death isn't a long term topic. It generates huge amounts of traffic for a week then dies off.

    What about Elvis,people still monetize him(not really his death tho),and elvisdeathhoax.com is still available. Make it a forum,put some ads like how BHW has,and you could easily monetize the crazy people that still think he is alive.
