Alphabet has been bought by Google. After the official announcement of Google being the subsidiary of Alphabet, it has taken the domain abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz.com. In 1999, this domain was crafted. When Google acquired this domain on Wednesday the same was updated- as per the domain database of Whois. However, the mystery of price remains the same.
In August, Google made a big announcement of restructuring in a bid. The bid was to sepearte the core business like search and Android from ‘moonshots’ as driverless cars. Simultaneously, Google unravelled the new URL abc.xyz for its website.
Purpose of taking this domain is still covered as the page could not be loaded till Thursday morning. A spokesperson for the company told media that they are making sure that they did not miss some letters in abc.xyz, so a thorough investigation is going on.

As per the data on Whois, Google has got 18, 095 domains as of now. Googl.com and Gogle.com have also been taken by the company so that misspelled also get redirected to the search engine Google. There will be times when company will play defensive to get prevented from acquistion of user names that would be embarassing in the future. GoogleSucks.com is already taken by the U.S. tech giant.
The domain names have become a headache for Google as the change to Alphabet. The domain alphabet.com is already owned by German carmaker BMW. New York Times reported about this domain earlier this year that BMW is not going to sell it.
