Earlier on, advice was given to defensively register your name as well as possible variants, if affordable. Shortly thereafter, it was reported that Jeb Bush may now be paying the price for not registering and maintaining a portfolio of domain names, with his name. Although he hasn’t put in an official bid for the Republican nomination, it is very likely he may. This comes after Mitt Romney said that he will not be running again. You would think that JebBushforPresident.com would have already been secured by Jeb Bush after the Bush Sr. and Jr. reign. However, it was not. The domain name was purchased by a private party in 2008. It is now owned by a gay couple out of Oregon that is promoting LGBT rights. The website has a taunting message of “more to come…” on the front page. Owners CJ Phillips and Charlie Rainwater have received several offers for the domain name. However, they refuse to sell it. There is no word from a spokeswoman of Jeb Bush if they attempted to purchase it utilizing a proxy service, quite possibly being the ones using an excuse that they’re buying it for a friend’s birthday. Although Jeb Bush’s stance on gay rights has changed in the past 20 years to be more liberal and to let the states decide, it is still evident where he stands. How this site would affect the numbers is unknown and could only be speculated on, but it’s something that no one would want up during a presidential race. By now, it should be clear to you that you ought to register your name in the dot com space, before someone else does.
