How Much Is Google’s Domain Name Worth?


You would think the domain of one of the largest companies in the world and most iconic websites of all time would be worth millions, maybe even billions! That’s not the case because Google’s own domain was bought from under its nose for $12 in October. That’s right, a measly $12!  Sanmay Ved saw google.com available for purchase on google domains and went for it. He owned it for a total of 1 minute. After seeing what happened Google cancelled the purchase and later gave him a reward.

The amount? $6,006.13. WHAT? I would think it would way more than that! I think Sanmay may have a case for getting some more dough from the internet giant. Google is said to be worth over 367 Billion dollars! The good news is Sanmay actually donated all of that money to charity and when Google found out, they doubled the amount. He said it’s not always about the money. What a guy!
