Let the lesson be learnt that if ever your personal domain expires, make sure you get to it quickly to re-register for fear of witty, online trolls.
Australian Senator Pauline Hanson has fallen prey to the rookie error of allowing her domain name to expire, meaning that it could be bought by a member of the public.
It’s unclear when Hanson’s domain expired exactly, but someone clearly jumped quickly at the mishap for a chance to troll the controversial Australian Senator, who leads the far-right political party One Nation.
Her domain now redirects to the Refugee Council of Australia, a non-profit that works closely with refugees and re-connects communities in need.
Just a PSA that One Nation Senator Pauline Hanson's domain name expired and has been… repurposed. https://t.co/uRjMN7c53b

Moreover, the domain name is also registered to the Refugee Council of Australia, however, it is possible to register a domain in a third-party’s name. It is unclear how long the domain will remain registered to the non-profit.
The Refugee Council of Australia website states it provides a platform “for the voices of refugees to be heard, the rights of refugees to be respected, the humanity of refugees valued and the contribution of refugees celebrated”.
The non-profit is funded by public donations and grants from philanthropic bodies as well as government agencies.
