Man buys for 12 dollars for 1 minute

A man who bought the domain name for $12 and owned it for about a minute has been rewarded by Google for uncovering the flaw.

In 2015, student and former Google employee Sanmay Ved was able to buy for the small sum due to an administrative issue at the search giant.

He was surprised to find the domain up for sale and when he went to buy it, the $12 transaction went through and the ownership of the search site was transferred.

Ved owned the domain for about a minute before Google noticed the mistake and cancelled the purchase, but not without offering a reward.

He adds, “Additionally, my Google Search Console (aka Google Webmaster Tools) was auto-updated with webmaster related messages for the domain which actually means ownership was transferred to me.” Even though the purchase was successful and his credit card was charged for the same, he later received an order cancellation email from Google Domains. He explains, “Google could cancel my purchase given the registration service used by me (aka Google Domains) belonged to Google.”

"Google could do this given the registration service used by me (aka Google Domains) belonged to Google," Ved wrote in a blog post on LinkedIn.

"I wrote back and told them it was never about money, and asked that the money be donated to charity to the Art of Living India Foundation," Ved wrote.

In a security blog post, the company revealed that it wanted to give Ved $6,006.13. Look at the amount as letters instead of numbers, and it comes close to spelling "google." "Squint a little and you'll see it!" Google said.
