Google Domains

Google announced earlier this week that it is in the process of building a domain registration service.

It’s not “… fully-featured yet, but we’re giving a small group of people the ability to buy and transfer domains through it and send feedback on their experience.” It’s by invitation only at present and looks like it’s a US only service right now.

The “features” they envisage providing, are in their words.

“Here’s what you get:

  • No additional cost for private registration
  • Branded emails
  • Easy domain forwarding
  • Customizable sub-domains
  • Fast, secure and reliable Internet infrastructure with Google
  • Simple domain management tools
  • Easy integration with top website builders
  • New domain endings (assistance re the new gTLDs)
  • Support

We added the italics annotation re the new gTLDs in which of course Google is a significant player applying for, we think, over 100 names range from the obvious .google to the less obvious .dot!

Worth a look and applying to join in if you are a US small business

Very interesting, we shall await developments!
