Google Plus is the huge new product from Google launched just a couple of weeks ago to compete with Facebook.com and as TechCrunch pointed out has already added billions in market cap to Google.
So I was pretty surprised to see that the domain name GooglePlus.com, which is in fact owned by Google, Inc. and under management at MarkMonitor.com the brand protection company, is simply not resolving
Not resolving to a page for Google Plus.
Not even just re-directed to Google.com.
Just Not resolving.
Of course if a domainer happened to own the domain there would be all sorts of hell to pay.
You would think with all those brilliant minds at work someone would have figured the domain should be turned on.
