What happened to Google Argentina?
While Nicolas Kurona became the owner of Google.com.ar, it was impossible to access the Argentine version of Google’s website. This young man made the purchase on April 21, and had extended it until the same day in 2022. But later the Argentine version of Google was restored and their site became active again.
The Argentine account that belongs to Google, stated that the Google license had not expired. Several arguments were made that had quickly spread through the networks to justify the purchase of the domain in Argentina.
“Google.com.ar was not expired or close to expire. It usually expires in July. Until this morning it was in the name of Google. Someone transferred it or something strange happened.” They responded to a tweet that spoke of the tech giant’s license had expired.
It is still unknown why Google lost its domain of Argentina to a young man who found the availability and bought it. The truth is that Nicolas Kurona is having many approaches through social networks and in fact today he must be enjoying his fame.
