Hurricane domains : Who owns the domain HurricaneMatthew.com ?

Hurricane Matthew.

Hurricane Matthew.

A dangerous hurricane is rolling into the Atlantic, and its name is Matthew.

Currently crossing Haiti with devastating, 140+ mph winds, hurricane Matthew is a category 4 hurricane that can deliver devastation.

Hurricanes in the US are given first names, to allow for people to address their distinct qualities.

The World Meteorological Organization decides on the names. For Atlantic hurricanes, there is a list of male and female names which are used on a six-year rotation.

In the event that more than twenty-one named tropical cyclones occur in the Atlantic basin in a season, additional storms will take names from the Greek alphabet.  This naming convention has been established by the World Meteorological Organization Tropical Cyclone Program.

You can view a list of past and upcoming names here.

So who owns the domain name HurricaneMatthew.com ?

The domain is forwarding to WeatherRiskSolutions.com, that is offering insurance plans called “HURLOs”:

“Our solution is HURLOs – Hurricane Risk Landfall Options. HURLOS are a way average homeowners can fill in the gap between what is paid by their insurance company and their actual expenses. HURLOS can be used to cover deductibles, and almost anything insurance will not cover, and do so within 72 hours of a hurricane making landfall – and that as you know is incredibly fast.  “

We came across these guys 4 years ago, with Hurricane Sandy. They also own the domain HurricaneDomains.com.

Registered in 2002, HurricaneMatthew.com does not provide any information on the actual hurricane currently threatening the US coastal states. The .net, .org and .info have recently been registered.

Stay safe, everyone and hunker down. Yep, that .com is also taken.
