Google.com

On September 15, 1997, the domain name Google.com was registered. This was one of the first steps of the founding of Google as a technology company, officially founded in 1998 by two Stanford University students, Larry Page and Sergey Brin.

Nerdy Fact: The original domain name for Google was actually “BackRub.com”, which was based on the algorithm that ranked web pages by their backlinks. However, the founders decided to change it to something more catchy and less creepy in 1997. The domain name “Google.com” is estimated to be worth billions of dollars, but it is not for sale. According to some experts, it could be worth as much as $25 billion, based on factors such as traffic, revenue, and brand value.
