    An Argentine internet user claimed realized ownership of the google.com.ar domain had expired Wednesday, April 21 and since it was available, he decided to purchase it for reportedly AR $ 540 (around the US $ 3.85 at the unofficial exchange rate) leading to a temporary shutdown of the search engine ending in “.ar”.

    Nicolás David Kuroña said in his Twitter account @Argentop that «I want to clarify that I entered nic.ar I saw the name of google.com.ar available and I legally bought it as appropriate!». Domains listed on nic.ar expire every year and must be renewed, but this time Kuroña was faster. “It is all legal !!,” Kuroña said.

    1x time in life opportunity to keep the G out of business for a few hours :) I guess, now he’s a very famous guy in the AR space ... for a week or two.

    He lost about $ 3. This is what it costs to register a .com.ar with NIC.ar. Next time G will be more attentive. Will the person responsible for renewing that domain continue to work at G? Because NIC warns before it falls.
