Donald Trump and his fans may want to steer clear of Loser.com.

Typing that address into a web browser redirected users to Trump's Wikipedia page, as of Feb. 2, 2016. See the above video for an example.

The digital jab appeared to come as a response to Trump losing to rival presidential nominee Ted Cruz at the Iowa Republican caucus on Monday — but the URL redirect has been active since at least Jan. 1, 2016, according to the Internet Archive.

The Loser.com redirect hasn't always been at Trump's expense, however. As of June 18, 2015, the web address redirected users to rapper Kanye West's Wikipedia page.
