In a hilarious turn of events on the launch of Alphabet, now the parent company of Google, Microsoft has trolled Alphabet’s domain: abc.xyz
Microsoft has (according to unconfirmed reports) registered domains resembling closely to the newly launched Alphabet site:
The sites redirect the users to Microsoft’s search engine, Bing, as the pun intended names were noticed by the internet community recently.
Alphabet has already been trolled by the similar naming troll domain by Microsoft and China’s ban on the Alphabet site over censorship issues when it was less than a day old.
The screenshots attached verify that the IP location (highlighted in red) of abc wtf and ASN indeed belong to the Redmond-based Microsoft.
What will be the future of the .xyz domains registered by the Microsoft is unknown so far. Microsoft has not commented on the matter.

My Verdict: Microsoft is asking Google ‘WTF is ABC’
