Google's growing list of domains

Have you ever wondered how many domain names Google owns? Currently Google owns 520 domain names. Their domain collection has been growing over the last couple years because of all of the companies they started and have bought. Some of these domain names are not in Google’s name, but in the company’s name that they purchased. If you see any domains missing or inaccuracies, feel free and leave a comment.

  1. Most combinations of Google with multiple o’s are theirs as well. 5 o’s – is the most that they have.

  2. Wow, I can’t wait for to see google-powered androids that can search, translate, take pictures, give me directions, and make toast!

  3. —>>> are they finally able to come out and say what their true plan was all along?

  4. Lard Sandwich: obviously they don’t want some adult site to register the domain before they do.

  5. is owned by a loan company in the UK, not google.
    Makes the rest of the comedy names seem a little suspect?

  6. Tom, will look into that one and make the changes.

    Nicolai, I doubt they will ever do anything with that domain name. I’m sure they are just protecting themselves.

  7. Eventually if Google were to own all those domain names, the rest of the world would run out of domain names to use… Can we stop Google from monopolising using these tricks?

  8. List has no credibility.
    I don’t think half of these domains are actually owned by google. This one is owned by a company called Data Docket Inc.
    It does not redirect to gogole calendar as I expected, it is a page that is not at all “google-esque”

  9. registration says nothing about google..
    btw google only uses network solutions too, so any other register is most likely a false registered information

  10. I did some cross-checks and some domains you listed are not owned by Google? (E.g.,, but I only checked these 2 domains.)

  11. Neil, u better rush in with some ‘ads by Google’ ..yr gonna make a killing being dugg :)

  12. Note: It’s misleading to say Google own all these domains as this list also includes domains that aren’t owned by Google but still point to a Google IP address.

  13. I think you should remove, or at least amend this blog post to reflect that this is *not* a list of domains owned by Google. It is simply a list of domains that point to Google’s server. Anyone could register a domain and point it at’s IP address.

  14. For those who are mentioning that the domains that do not say they are actually owned by Google in the WHOIS information should realize that Google buys a lot of small companies. These events rarely, if ever, hit the news. These are small startups with maybe 1, 2, or 3 employees. If these companies own domain names, the domain names come as part of the sale. So, just because the WHOIS information doesn’t mention Google… and, even in some cases, even if the domain name points to servers OTHER than Google… and shows something “non-Google-esque”… this does not necessarily mean it is not owned by Google. Of course, likewise, the opposite is true. Just because the domain points to Google’s servers does not necessarily mean the domain is owned by Google. This helps to keep things a mystery. Add this to the fact that Google is technically a domain registrar, so they could register domain names through their own registration system under an alternative name.

  15. Some of these domain names are not in Google’s name, but in the company’s name that they purchased.

    And some of these domains are registered in the names of the people that registered them and aren’t related to Google at all.

  16. Actually, Google uses MarkMonitor. There is no way that is there’s. It’s just been registered by someone and pointed there.

  17. Hello Neil, another missing bit (though the list of URLs pointing at Google is definitely interesting):, formerly owned by a Hungarian search engine, has just been given back to Google (recent news in Hungary). Cheers, and good updating,
    Anna Sebesty?

  18. I know there have been some inaccuracies in the list, but I wanted to take a crack at it. The only people that know all the domains that Google owns is Google. I do appreciate everyone helping out and giving suggestions. Thanks for all your help.

  19. MarkMonitor, what they do is protect a company’s integrity online by registering these domain names FOR google, so no one else can. will tell you “” is owned by Google Inc. but is registered by MarkMonitor. This way, no one else can register GOOGLEPORN and ruin the reputation of Google. Clearly, the same goes for, they are not going to want sites with such names existing, so they snatch them up first.

  20. I also have a similar list. but i think what you need to include more domains, for example, google owns many idn domains, in japanese, chinese, etc.
    anyway thats another good list you have here.

    you might want to see all the country listand by the way, did google win the gmail? I thought 2 companies registered gmail as their domain.
