As you have probably already learnt, Google likes to offer more or less anything it can supply at a better quality than everyone else, the latest of which is their opening of a new domain registration service called Google Domains.
Currently users need an invite from Google before they can start using the service, but once they do get an invite they can either register a brand new domain with Google, or transfer a current one to the service.
Google is however making it clear that they won’t be offering hosting, for that users will need to use another service, or maybe one of Google’s current partners that includes Wix, Shopify, Weebly and Squarespace, all of whom will be happy to help you host and build your websites.
Google also confirmed that it won’t be charging customers with hidden fees for extra features, such as the ability to hide personal details, and it will also be providing full-on customer support with the service, for which Google says that they hope to provide phone and email support from Monday to Friday from 9Am to 9PM EST, which is okay, but not the best, just to give you an example, our host Tsohost provides 24/7 support.
“We’re beginning to invite a small number of people to kick the tires on Google Domains, a domain registration service we’re in the process of building, businesses will be able to search, find, purchase and transfer the best domain for their business – whether it’s .com, .biz, .org, or any of the wide range of new domains that are being released to the Web.” Google announced with the service on Google+.
Google Domains will also allow users to add up to 100 sub-domains, with the ability to add new domain endings like .london or .guru. Users can also add up to 100 email aliases with the domain, and they can access domain forwarding easily, and probably the biggest feature is that the domains will use the same DNS servers as Google uses themselves.
As the service is currently invite-only we don’t really know any pricing details, and we don’t know when it might be available to the public worldwide.
