Facebook registers clean energy domains like Facebookcleanenergy.org

Facebook

It appears Facebook may be taking its message of commitment to clean energy online.

On February 6, 2012, the world’s leader in social networking registered a slew of clean energy-related domain names through the internet brand protection company MarkMonitor.  

Facebook registered the dotcom, dotnet and dotorg versions of the names, like Facebookcleanenergy.com, Facebookcleanenergy.net and Facebookcleanenergy.org.

Here’s a look at the names:

http://whois.domaintools.com/facebookcleanenergy.org 
http://whois.domaintools.com/facebookenergy.org 
http://whois.domaintools.com/facebookenergy.net 
http://whois.domaintools.com/facebooksocialenergy.com
http://whois.domaintools.com/facebooksocialenergy.net  
http://whois.domaintools.com/facebooksocialenergy.org 
http://whois.domaintools.com/facebooksustainability.com
http://whois.domaintools.com/facebooksustainability.net  
http://whois.domaintools.com/facebooksustainability.org
http://whois.domaintools.com/sustainablefacebook.com
http://whois.domaintools.com/sustainablefacebook.net   
http://whois.domaintools.com/sustainablefacebook.org 

Although the owner of each domain is hidden using MarkMonitor’s privacy service “DNStination”, Facebook is a well-known client of MarkMonitor, so there’s very little doubt Facebook is behind the registrations.

In mid December 2011, Greenpeace and Facebook announced that they will collaborate on the promotion of renewable energy.

As of today, none of the domains resolve to a web page.
