OccupyEverything on the Web

In the past few months, Internet domain registrar GoDaddy​.com has sold 5,200 domain names with the word "occupy."

There’s a “digital land grab underway” thanks to Occupy Wall Street, said Suzanne Woolley in Bloomberg Businessweek. Internet domain registrar GoDaddy​.com “has sold 5,200 domain names with ‘occupy’ in them from September to early November, compared with 80 from January through August.” People have snatched up everything from OccupyBoston to OccupyKStreet. There are sites dedicated to White House hopefuls (OccupyHermanCain), the holidays (OccupyHannukah), and various locales (OccupyTheSea, OccupyTheUniverse).There’s OccupyThis and OccupyThat, OccupyYou and OccupyMe. Jordan Fainberg wants people to OccupyBethesda in a conventional sense: by buying one of the Bethesda, Md., houses the real estate agent has listed on his site. “It’s getting a bunch of hits,” he says.
