Pocahontas.com Forwarding to ElizabethWarren.com

Presumptive Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump has referred to US Senator Elizabeth Warren as “Pocahontas,” and it looks like someone is playing a domain name prank on the Senator from Massachusetts.

After reading about this nickname, I was curious to see who owns Pocahontas.com and how a domain name like that is being used. When I typed Pocahontas.com into my browser, I was forwarded to ElizabethWarren.com, the campaign website for Senator Warren (who happens to be my US Senator).

Whois records for Pocahontas.com are private, so it is unclear who currently owns the domain name. It is also unclear why the owner chose to use this domain name in this manner.

Interestingly, Donald Trump also experienced this kind of domain name pranking / trolling. Earlier this year, Loser.com was forwarding to Donald Trump’s Wikipedia page. Loser.com is no longer forwarding and currently resolves to a registrar landing page.

It often seems that domain names become a major topic of conversation during the long Presidential election process. Domain names seem to allow citizens to become more involved in the election process.
