Google’s own domain was bought from under its nose for $12 in October, and Google just revealed how much money it paid to get it back.
Definitely Google.com is worth more than that. But kudos to the guy who have thought of tracking this domain name and purchased it right on spot. I would have never imagined to even track this domain name to purchase.
Imagine how much porn.com goes...
First you have to track the domain so that it get expired and you have to buy it in the matter of second because the company will know it in seconds that the website is down.

Slow news day?
Gizmig's comment is longer than the article itself. ON a side not Mashable's website is one of the most disorganized things I've ever seen.
Old news, but interesting. So Mr Ved received $6,006.13 from google and he donated all to the charity
Yeah when google found that out they doubled what they gave him which is very nice of google.
Totally agree but it is kind of that guy too that he has donated the amount to "Art of living" for the betterment of the society.
Lmao That's hilarious and even more hilarious that they paid that exact number for it back. I wonder if anyone noticed when it was not in Google's hands? Did the domain just direct to some kind of error page?
Is this why Google was not working a while ago lol
Lol that might be the cause. All thanks to the Indian boy who did a great job.
Yes indians are really good at their workings.
The fact this happened and they paid him is old, the value is new. Perhaps he should have requested a numeric version of Alphabet instead!
Omg they sold it for just 12$. The guy who buyed should'nt return it back.
It is not in the hands of the boy. You haven't read it right? They have took back the domain name from him.
