Google Com Registration

It might be Google's 19th birthday today but did you know that was registered over 20 years ago? It was registered on Monday, September 15, 1997, which was 20 years and 12 days ago. That is a while year and 12 days after the official birthday day of September 27, 1998.

There has been some debate, even internally at Google, on when their official birthday is but they ended settling on today, September 27th.

In terms of them registered the domain over 20 years ago? I guess they liked the name and it wasn't the date they officially became a business?

Here is the whois data:
