    Politician Admits Owning 100+ Domain Names of Other Politicians

    [​IMG]
    It was reported yesterday that Republican House member, Dunbarton Rep. JR Hoell owns more than 100 domain names ? representing politicians from both parties.
    Hoell has been purchasing the domain names for anywhere from $.99 to $12.99. While he declined to name all the sites he owns, a quick search shows they range from several iterations of state Sen. Jeb Bradley (http://congressmanjebbradley.com/, http://bradleyforsenate.com/, http://senatorjebbradley.com/) and former senator Scott Brown (http://senatorscottbrown.org/), to sites bearing the names of his former opponents, including Rep. Mary Beth Walz, a Bow Democrat (http://marybethwalz.com/ and .org).
    ?I honestly see it as an investment, financially or politically. Everyone wants to have their own domain name when they run for higher office,? said Hoell, who bought his own name?s website over a decade ago.

    New Hampshire State Representative JR Hoell grew up in New Jersey and attended Stevens Institute of Technology, a private engineering school in Hoboken, NJ.

    Bro the story is about how someone got to do with his domain investments. The fact that he is a politician doesnt mean that the story is political. Posted here because I thought it was a Domain related topic. If not mods kindly take down. Thanks

    As a side gig, I offer local politicians advice on websites and online marketing. This has been happening for a long time... NOT just politically. If the domain is taken they will purchase one with the first letter of their middle name (e.g. John Black Doe = johnbdoe.com). There are plenty alternatives.

    It's always best to own YOURNAME.com as an investment. I was unable to get mine since a producer at MTV owns it; therefore I did what I suggest above. Get the domain of your first, first letter of your middle and last name.
