FilipinoBigots.com leads to CBCP Website
Visit “FilipinoBigots.com” with your web browser, and you’ll end up on cbcponline.net, the official website of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines.
FilipinoBigots.com is a domain name, an online address that directs users to a specific location on the Internet. Many domain names represent an easy way for users to remember where specific websites are located. Both “188.8.131.52″ and “google.com” lead to Google’s website, but the latter is more memorable right?
Some domain names are used as domain forwarders. They exist only to direct visitors to other websites. In this example, FilipinoBigots.com directs users towards cbcponline.net.
A quick look at FilipinoBigots.com’s Whois record, which contains information on who owns the domain name, doesn’t reveal anything significant. (We previously used the same method to determine for DOT undersecretary Enteng Romano‘s involvement with the Pro-Trillanes websites) FilipinoBigots.com’s owner has taken steps to protect his or her identity, which is a common practice for domain names and websites.
Wondering why FilipinoBigots.com was made in the first place, and why it redirects to the CBCP website? Clearly the CBCP has nothing to do with the spiteful domain name. Seems someone has taken issue with the religious organization’s policies.
Whatever the case however, it’s clear that the CBCP needs a website revamp. Badly.
Thanks for the heads-up Ade!
