Google had allowed its blogspot.in domain to expire back in June and it’s now up for sale. The search giant implemented a feature back in 2012 that redirects Blogger blogs to region specific blogspot URLs depending upon where the link is being accessed from, and blogspot.in was one of them. To keep the URL up and running, domain holders – in this case Google – need to pay a registration fee to renew their ownership of the domain. But, Google let it lapse and now the domain is up for sale for just $5,999. The domain contains more than 40 lakh old URLs that stopped working when Google’s ownership lapsed.
As per the report, the blogspot.in area was purchased by an Indian organization called domainming.com on June 24 and is currently being sold for $5,999 on the Sedo space marketplace.This could be abused to spread malware, tricks, or dark cap SEO rehearses, the distribution noted.
Nonetheless, note that the Blogger locales themselves are as yet dynamic and working like they should. On the off chance that you made a Blogger blog it will at present keep on filling in as usual — the main issue is the old connections that were made utilizing the .in pages. On the off chance that you scan for a blog today, you’ll get the right outcome on Google, however in the event that somebody connected to a blog entry before, and utilized the .in interface, that will not work anymore.
