With social networks censoring being in the spotlight this week. Someone asked about hate related domain names eventually being shut down.

On Namepros @Jeffrey asked, Will Registrars ban or delete “hate” domain names in the future?

Now almost 4 years ago I wrote about the NAACP failing to renew one of the most hateful words in the English language. After the post many reached out and the domain name did get renewed. The name does not resolve.

When we look at other domain names that are either a slur, or hate related we see some different routes.

Kike.com is owned by the Anti Defamation League and does not resolve.

Faggot.com is under privacy it’s using Sedo nameservers but they will not allow the site to resolve.

Retard.com is the same as Faggot.com, Sedo nameservers but they will not allow the site to connect.

Retard.com

Dyke.com under privacy, does not resolve.

Wetback.com is owned by Namefind. Parking page offering domain name for sale. Acquired when they purchased Frank Schilling’s company.

Cunt.com is being brokered by Grit Brokerage.

The above is just a small sample of offensive words and how they are used. The question becomes will these kinds of names eventually get banned from registration?

Not being able to be censored is one of the selling points for blockchain domain names like those from Unstoppable Domains.
