Company acquired domain name that’s often a typo for people trying to access the search engine.
Multinational technology company Google owns thousands of domain names in a portfolio consisting of ultra-premium names such as Zero.com and brand protection domains like Gooogle .com.
Google recently added another domain name to its portfolio that could fall into both the premium domain and brand protection brackets.
According to Whois data, Google is now the registrant of Goggle .com after the domain moved from Uniregistry to Google’s MarkMonitor account this week. Goggle .com was previously registered to Goggle .com, Inc. Previous versions of Goggle .com have been excluded from Archive.org’s Wayback Machine. The search giant has also secured domain names Goggle .net and Goggle .org from Goggle.com, Inc.
It comes over a decade after Goggle .com made headlines after Google filed a complaint with the National Arbitration Forum to secure Goggle.com, Goggle. net, and Goggle .org. The complaint, in which Zak Muskovitch represented the respondent, was dismissed after the panel gave a decision that stated, “The Panel declines jurisdiction over this Complaint and over Respondent’s related claim of Reverse Domain Name Hijacking. The case is thus dismissed.”
