Google Turned a Domain Blunder into a Cute Joke?
Back in October, Sanmay Ved was browsing Google Domains when one domain caught his eye – google.com. He bought it and ended up owning what may be the most iconic domain name in the world for a grand total of one minute. Google cancelled the transaction and gave him $6,006.13, which I guess is ‘Google’ spelled with numbers? Cute, but looks more like ‘Booble’ to me.
It’s unclear why google.com was even listed as available, but this blunder beckons the old adage – always set your domains to automatically renew! Countless companies have been embarrassed after forgetting to renew their domains, as we’ve already explored in our previous blog, Top 15 Domain Renewal Bloopers and Lessons Learned.
