Guess who owns & !!!

Yeah … guess who has registered these domains, & & !? is registered to Microsoft !

bing sucks is registered to Google !

google sucks

And where does take you to ? See for yourself ! Smile It too is registered to Microsoft!


I guess this is a common practice among large companies who want to play safe and avoid being the butt of such jokes! This is not the first time this is happening. many companies have chosen to register domains which are similar to its own main domain or a combinations, which could be used by the competition to embarrass them.

    This does not surprise me. It is just a way for Microsoft and Google to prevent people from registering those names. If you look Google also owns, .org, etc. Companies often register domain names they never plan on using for the sole purpose of protecting their brands.

    I don’t know if they (Microsoft and Google) registered the domains themselves originally, but they may have seen someone using them and requested the registrar turn the domain names over to them. That happened to me back in early 2000-2001. I purchased and for an ecommerce website selling laptop prodcuts (Connect Globally, Inc.). That was when google was just becoming popular and I was (successfully) trying to capitalize on their name. A few months went by and we received a cease and desist letter from Google demanding we turn the domain name over to them or stop using it. We stopped using it and let it expire instead of “giving” it to them. Point is, they can pretty much take the names from you if it has their name in it and you are trying to use it for profit.
