Domain Registration Service Announced by Google
Google has announced that it is launching a new domain registration service known as Google Domains. The new service will offer customers 100 email addresses on the domain for free, as many as 100 subdomains, and will make use of Google DNS servers for quick response times. Google Domains will not charge consumers extra for setting an address private, and the service will support new address registrations as well as transfers. Website creations tools such as Shopify, Squarespace, Weebly, and Wix have all signed up as partners as well. The search engine giant has decide to create its own domain registration service because of research that its small business division recently conducted, which revealed that 55 percent of small businesses still lack a website.
Currently, Google Domains is only available to those who receive an invitation to participate, but Google is hoping to make the service available to the masses in the near future.
