Google buys domains
Everybody knows, even Jiří Kajínek, that ranges of IPv4 address have already been exhausted for several year. Although there are efforts to move all infrastructure to IPv6, many people and organizations still have a problem with it.

This is the range of 18.104.22.168/12, which should be used primarily by users of Google’s cloud services. More information
