    Singer didn’t register her name as domain names.

    When you become an overnight sensation, registering domain names is probably not on the top of your mind. So I’ll forgive Britain’s Got Talent star Susan Boyle for not registering SusanBoyle.co.uk.

    But shouldn’t the show’s producers have been on top of it? I doubt it was on top of their mind given that they don’t even own BritainsGotTalent.com. (The producers do own the British .co.uk version).

    Whois records show that SusanBoyle.co.uk was registered April 10. It is now a hastily thrown together fan site for Boyle. SusanBoyle.me.uk and SusanBoyle.org.uk were registered April 14 in the name of Manchester University. The former resolves to a WordPress theme and the latter is a blank page that with the words “It works!”

    Susan K. Boyle, an Arizona Texas artist, has probably seen a spike in web site traffic over the past few days. Undoubtedly a lot of Americans are trying to find out more about the “singing” Susan Boyle by typing in SusanBoyle.com.
