    Santorum lets a number of domain names expire.

    [Update: the domain names were renewed shortly after this article was published. To whomever was in charge of renewing this domain: you’re welcome.] Is one time presidential hopeful Rick Santorum letting his political ambitions expire?

    Santorum is letting a number of future-oriented political domain names expire.

    The domains appear to have been managed by New Media Communications, Inc., a political marketing company.

    Here are some of the domains that have expired:

    RICKSANTORUM2018.NET
    RICKSANTORUMFORGOVERNOR.COM
    RICKSANTORUMFORGOVERNOR.NET
    RICKSANTORUMFORGOVERNOR2014.COM
    RICKSANTORUMFORGOVERNOR2014.NET
    RICKSANTORUMFORPA.COM
    RICKSANTORUMFORPA.NET
    RICKSANTORUMFORPRESIDENT2012.COM
    RICKSANTORUMFORPRESIDENT2012.NET
    RICKSANTORUMFORPRESIDENT2016.COM
    RICKSANTORUMFORPRESIDENT2016.NET
    SANTORUM2018.COM
    SANTORUM2018.NET
    SANTORUMFORGOVERNOR.NET
    SANTORUMFORGOVERNOR2014.COM
    SANTORUMFORGOVERNOR2014.NET
    SANTORUMFORPRESIDENT2012.COM
    SANTORUMFORPRESIDENT2012.NET
    SANTORUMFORPRESIDENT2016.COM
    SANTORUMFORPRESIDENT2016.NET

    The domains just recently expired and he still has time to renew the domains at Network Solutions. Otherwise they’ll be auctioned off.

    Of course, Santorum has his official web site at RickSantorum.com. But given how his name has been played with in Google, he’s probably best off keeping a lot of defensive registrations.

  • This guy is a total tool anyhow.
    Did he not expect this to happen?
    He was NEVER going to be The POTUS.
    Seems kind of stupid to go get so many names
    that are as useless as he is.

    Worthless domains. I urge anyone who’s tempted to reg these silly domains to take a deep breath and count to a million. And if you’re still tempted, count to two million.

    ;)

    I live in Pennsylvania, and this guy was a total embarrassment to the commonwealth.

    I’m so glad he’s no longer a Senator.

    Presidential possibilty for 2016 or 2020? I hope not.

    Otherwise, the U.S. will truly be in trouble.

    He’s a distraction of the worst kind.
