Google is also trying to get .doc and. live but will have to fight with Microsoft to acquire them. Moreover, the search giant is also in the race against Johnson & Johnson for .baby. the company is also competing with Amazon for 17 domains including .wow, .search, .shop, .drive, .free, .game, .mail, .map, .movie, .music, .play, .shop, .show, .spot, .store, .talk and .you.
