Meet.com: Will Google Buy the Domain Name?

13


It looks like the Meet.com domain name appears to have been listed for sale. If you visit the domain name, you can see an inquiry form that says “Meet.com is for sale!” and there is a price tag that indicates the purchase price is $2 million. The domain name was previously forwarding to to TsunamiXR.com, according to Archive.org.

I looked through my email, and I see that the domain name listed for sale in a couple of brokerage newsletters. I am uncertain if the domain name was sold when it had previously been listed, although I do not see any public sales history on NameBio.

Google recently introduced a meeting platform called Google Meet, and the platform can be found on Meet.Google.com. It seems like it could make sense for Google to try and buy Meet.com. Owning Meet.com would not only help make that a standalone brand, but Meet.com is a great domain name in and of itself.

  1. I think Google will buy it. Numerous silicon valley corps. are announcing on social media that they are moving towards full or partial remote work models. And to compete with Zoom and Microsoft Teams, having Meet.com as a standalone will be a necessity.

  2. Even though they’re currently using Meet.Google.com, they should definitely own Meet.com in my opinion. Especially if they want to build the brand Meet under the Alphabet umbrella as they’ve done with other products.

  3. If they’re serious about the meet/video market they had to buy it even before launching
    meet.google, if i would be ZOOM i would buy it as a forward a possible premium service etc and
    just get it of the market / competitors

    Meet.com 2 million a real bargain, remembering my dear brother who owned bargain.com and
    domaininvesting.com Elliot best regards keep safe & well and keep up the great work.

  4. Depends on how serious Google is. Is it really going to compete or just any other half baked Google idea that will be shuttered in a couple of years?

  5. They didn’t buy voice.

    Google:

    Is perpetually at war against domain names.

    Has waged the biggest war of any entity against domain names.

    Will probably not want to buy it just on “principle.” I.e., the principal of waging war on domain names.
