Google romancing with the alphabets!

It seems like Google is in deep romance with the alphabet.

To reflect its new identity under the holding company Alphabet, Google Inc has got into serious business of owning everything that comes near to the English alphabet.

The internet search giant has acquired the domain name abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz.com, just a few days after it officially became a subsidiary of Alphabet.

The domain was created in 1999 and was updated on October 7 when Google took control of it for an undisclosed amount.  


According to query and response protocol leader WHOIS (pronounced who is), Google owns 18,095 other domains.

It even owns some of its misspelt forms like Googl.com and Gogle.com.

However, Google's mission alphabet remains incomplete as of now. German luxury auto maker BMW already owns alphabet.com, and doesn’t plan on giving it up anytime soon.
