Domain sightings: Sun Sprinklers operates from a domain name that’s parked with ads

Sun Sprinklers is a family owned company based in Altamonte Springs, Florida. The company is “a full service sprinkler irrigation contractors registered with the state of Florida IS386, bonded, licensed, and insured.”

We came across the Sun Sprinklers van parked at the local Home Depot store, in yet another domain sighting.

Odd fact #1: The company’s web site is not SunSprinklers.com, which is for sale on Afternic. They operate from SprinklersOrlando.com, which is a great geodomain, utilizing the sprinklers keyword with the company’s location, as one can see in the picture below:

Odd fact #2: That domain displays PPC ads at GoDaddy and it appears to be a misconfiguration issue. The web site was operating just fine in 2022, as this Archive.org capture shows.

What’s a “domain sighting,” you may ask.

It’s when we encounter domain names in the real world, that appear on vehicle wraps and signs, billboards and business signs, and product packaging. For convenience, we group them into .com domain sightings, and other ccTLDs, gTLDs and TLDs.
