Google domain names – the funny, strange and surprising

Google logoGoogle owns a whole bunch of domain names other than the obvious ones like google.com, blogger.com and gmail.com. We here at Pingdom decided to find out which ones, with some truly surprising results.

We only looked at .com domain names, and found thousands. Below are some of the more noteworthy .com domain names that Google owns.

Misspellings and typos:
  • gewgol.com
  • glougle.com
  • goolgel.com
  • glugli.com
  • geggle.com
  • georgle.com
  • glogoo.com
  • gmale.com
Totally unrelated:
  • 30dayfitness.com
  • bayareaburritos.com
  • donationcard.com
  • essentialmommy.com
  • greengardengifts.com
  • mariolovespasta.com
  • thesecretofburritos.com
Why?
  • 1p0g0og1e.com
  • az-on-url-je.com
  • goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooogle.com
New services?
  • google4kids.com
  • googlebackups.com
  • googleauction.com
  • googlebroadband.com
  • googlecasinogames.com
  • googlefamily.com
  • googlejokes.com
  • googlelovers.com
  • googlepersonals.com
Yes, we’re big:
  • googlereligion.com
  • googlefaith.com
Starting offline services?
  • googlegym.com
  • googledaycare.com
  • bankgoogle.com
  • googlepaperproducts.com
Geographical:
  • googlenewyork.com
  • googleonthegoaldcoast.com
  • kuwaitgoogle.com
Not safe for work:
  • googlesex.com
  • googleporn.com
  • google-yahoo-porn.com
  • google-yahoo-sex.com
Buddies?
  • googletimewarner.com
  • ebay-google.com
  • googlewarnerbros.com
Is this legal?
  • googlewarez.com
The not so nice ones:
  • checkoutsucks.com
  • dejastinks.com
  • frooglesucks.com
  • fuckengoogle.com
  • gmailblows.com
  • gmailsucks.com
  • googlefools.com
  • googlemotherfucker.com
  • googlepoo.com
  • googlesucks.com
Pingdom likes:
  • errorpageassist.com
  • googlemonitoring.com
  • googleclusters.com
  • googlewebmonitoring.com

How we found these domain names

We found all of these domain names by processing the root zone file for the .com top-level domain. We also confirmed that the domain names in this post are owned by Google by looking at domain WHOIS information for the ones we included.

It is likely that many of these domain names have been registered by Google either to protect their brand, and in some cases to prevent typosquatting and similar practices. Google lawyers have surely been keeping busy reclaiming lots of Google-related domain names over the years.

For those interested, here is a complete Excel file with all .com domain names that point to the Google DNS servers ns1.google.com-ns4.google.com. Note that not all of them will be owned by Google (but most are) so you will need to confirm ownership with a WHOIS lookup.

We hope you found this collection interesting. :)

It appears Google is spending more on registering, renewing and maintaining its domains than what we manage to earn out of our domains..!! Haha..!!

In reply to Anand - Yahoo can't do anything about it unless they could prove that Google was in some way either benefiting from pretending to be a Yahoo service or if they were using the domain name in bad faith, i.e. to damage Yahoo's image Still I don't see why either would see those domains as key - but obviously someone did to register it. Probably the same person that thought it would be vital to secure. <a href="http://www.alquilerdeyatesenibiza.com" </a>.

It seems that Google is using a 3rd party service that is registering possible illicit domain usage. For many of the domains, the registrar is Markmonitor.com , which "Prevents illicit domain abuse tactics—such as cybersquatting and domain kiting—by using defensive domain registration to block others from exploiting domain names associated with your brand" markmonitor.com

Wow interesting post, would not imagine them owning so many domain names. However im concerned about fan based website http://www.googlefocus.com Could this regarded as trademark infringement?? BIg G does have the money to able corner the market, popular search terms related keywords. Can someone argue that donationcard.com is not related to their business, and really they are squatting on some names. i have often wondered why they have not entered the domain name marketplace/registration. justin.

the googlesucks and gamilsucks type domains are probably bought because if someone else owned them GooGle can NOT sue for copyright infringement.

    Alle Google domeinnamen – grappig, verassend, bizar…

    Wist u dat Google een ganse reeks domeinnamen heeft gereserveerd, naast google.com, blogger.com en gmail.com?…

  13. [...] ¿Qué tienen en común los dominios gewgol.com, glougle.com, goolgel.com, glugli.com, geggle.com, georgle.com, glogoo.com y gmale.com? Que todos pertenecen al buscador por excelencia. Si en la última entrada del blog me hacía eco de que el Gobierno había perdido la oportunidad de hacerse con los dominios más claros de cuatro ministerios, al habérsele adelantado un internauta murciano, en esta ocasión destaco la versión contraria. Google evita enfrentarse a ese típico problema haciéndose por anticipado con muchas direcciones, más concretamente, con más de 2.000, según puntualiza la empresa Pingdom. Esta firma sueca, que ya en anteriores ocasiones había hecho algún estudio sobre los datos del rey de las búsquedas, lanza ahora un exhaustivo rastreo de todos sus dominios. Y, los resultados, son, cuanto menos, sorprendentes. Entre ellos, hay algunos, que intentan evitar que los navegantes que se equivocen al escribir el nombre no acaben en otras webs. Como ejemplo de ello, los ya mencionados o el clásico goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooogle.com. Los hay también que indican nuevos servicios de la empresa, como googleauction.com (subastas) o, quién sabe, si nuevas áreas de negocio, como googleporn.com o googlesex.com. Además, con esta rápida acción también logran que los detractores del buscador no puedan utilizar dominios en su contra, como, por ejemplo, con gmailsucks.com (Gmail apesta). ¿Pero cómo logró Pingdom hacer esta lista? Mirando los .com y comprobando a quién pertenece cada de los dominios, a través de la herramienta pública Whois (en inglés, quién es), que relaciona cada dirección con su propietario. Sin más, les dejo con la lista, ya sea a través de Pingdom o con un documento excel con el que enlazan. Eso sí, a lo que no tengo explicación es por qué el buscador reservó los dominios Bayareaburritos.com o thesecretofburritos.com. [...]
