Google Buys ABC.Club – “ABC” Domain Name Registrations Continue

abc-xyz-googleGoogle continues its Alphabet related domain name shopping spree. It has now registered or purchased close to 100 domain names related to the Alphabet company launch.

Yesterday Google bought the domain name ABC.Club at its brand protection registrar, Mark Monitor. The domain name was sold for an undisclosed price by the .Club registry. Google also bought alphabet.xyz from a domainer for $3,800 and abc.global from the .Global registry.

The sale was announced on Twitter by Colin Campbell:

abc.club-google
Others continued to buy “abc” related domains even after my last post 4 days ago that featured hundreds of registered domains. Here are a few of the latest domains:

abc.investments
abc.camera
abc.flights
abc.watch
abc.kitchen
abc.run
abc.dog
abc.agency

Some of these domains have very expensive yearly renewals. For example the domain abc.investments has a renewal rate of more than $220 USD per year.

If you missed the Google, Alphabet and abc.xyz articles this past week here is a recap:

  1. Since http://abc.com and http://abc.tv redirect to http://abc.go.com, Google should buy abc.com as well 🙂

    • How about ABC.NET, I think it’s the most suitable name, and Google would thus revive the most beautiful extension there ever was. The original .NET which conveys the spirit of the InterNET before it was becoming too COMmercialized.

  2. Guest who owns and uses Alphabet.company http://www.aplhabet.company the Internet master Google. If my company is based on simplicity, I would wanna own Simplicity.company http://www.simplicity.company
    Finally, domain names that says it all.
