There was a catastrophic earthquake in Nepal today. The death toll is in the hundreds and rapidly rising, and the number of injured is in the thousands. This tragic situation continues to unfold, as aftershocks hit the region and more information is shared.

It seems that every time there is a major disaster or tragedy, there are people who try to capitalize on it by buying associated domain names. In the case of the recent earthquake in Nepal, I want to share one important domain name registration that is going to help people who have been hard hit by the earthquake and in need of assistance: NepalEarthquakeRelief.com.

If you visit NepalEarthquakeRelief.com, you’ll see that it forwards to ShikshyaFoundationNepal.org, a non-profit organization in Nepal. A Whois Search shows that NepalEarthquakeRelief.com was registered today by Jeffrey Wolfe, who is one of the founders of Crowdrise, a startup that uses crowdsourcing to raise money for good causes.

Crowdrise fundraiser has raised over $11,000 until now.
