Answer: "Googol.com"

Business Insider – “In 1997, Larry Page and Sean Anderson sat around a table at Stanford University brainstorming names for a massive data-index website with some other graduate students. Anderson suggested "googolplex," one of the largest describable numbers. Page shortened the word to "googol.

Anderson immediately went to check the availability of the domain, but when he typed the name online, he made a few mistakes. Anderson typed "google" instead. Fond of the name, Page immediately registered the site for himself and Sergey Brin. The rest is history.”
