Google Reveals How Much It Paid Man Who Briefly Owned Google.com Last Year, And There’s A Hidden Message

In 2015, Google had to buy back its google.com domain name from an ex-employee who owned it for about a minute.

Sanmay Ved was able to buy google.com for just $12, making him the owner of the world’s most visited web domain.

Google quickly spotted the error and refunded his purchase.

Ved had previously revealed that Google’s security team had contacted him to offer a reward for spotting the unusual error, but there was no mention of the amount.

Google later revealed in a blog post, as spotted by 9to5google.com, that it paid Ved $6,006.13 – an amount with a hidden message.

The figure subtly spells out the word ‘Google’ (if you squint a bit).

Google doubled the amount after Ved announced that he would donate the fee to a charity called ‘The Art of Living India’, which aims to bring education to poorer parts of the country.

Google, along with many other large companies, routinely awards cash prizes to people who report security bugs.

- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
