We previously mentioned the large number of domain name registrations generated by the American presidential election campaign here.
A recent tweet of the newly elected President of the Unites States generated a large number of reactions to the new word "COVFEFE". Since then, more than 1500 domain names registrations including this term have been identified by our search tools: wearecovfefe.com, i-want-covfefe.com or covfefe.wtf !
The latter was registered in a highly significant TLD extension and resolves to an active page on which a single line can be read:
"This historical domain of the United States is for sale, please make us an offer".
One thing is certain: no U.S. president has ever sold so many domain names in such a short time.
