Risky domain for sale because Google let it expire

Millions of indexed addresses URL are in danger of being used for malicious purposes because Google has let the domain expire, making it available for purchase and sale by another company. In particular, Google allowed the domain to expire in early June 2020, so it was bought by another company that sells it for $ 6.000. In 2012, Google implemented a new one ability redirects Blogspot sites to URLs of a specific country that correspond to their geographical location and comply more quickly with requests content deletions.

One of domains used by Blogspot is, the registration of which Google expired in early June 2020. This resulted in the destruction of 4,4 million URLs in Google search results, as the domain was no longer responsive to requests. domain-expiration-Google

For example, if someone in India had access at a URL, the site would not load and display an error message saying "The IP address of server could not be found". In the same way, the permalinks shared by users on SOCIAL MEDIA have also been "broken" as Google has lost control of the domain name. At the same time, while profiles appear to have moved to, these URLs still appear in Google search results and do not redirect users to new blogs.

In addition, today came the news that a shared hosting provider by the name “”, based in India, bought the domain on June 24, 2020, after it became inactive.

However, it is not yet known if the buyer contacted Google to make arrangements for the transfer of the domain after its expiration, but has now been put up for sale in the domain market. Silk for $ 5.999. This price is a small amount to gain control of the millions of URLs listed in the Google search and published in platforms social media and various forum. With so many URLs, hackers they could buy the domain and use it to execute scams, malicious programs or blackhat SEO. Given the dangers of letting a "very active" domain expire, it is strange that Google has allowed this to happen, given how cheap it would be to maintain it even if it is not in use.
