Google Domains to Start Domain Name Registration Service
Google today revealed that it is building a domain registration service called Google Domains. The product is still an early work in progress, so it’s in invite-only beta for now but should be more widely available to consumers soon. Google’s small business-facing division decided to build the product because, according to its research, 55 percent of small businesses still don’t have a website. Since the domain acts as the foundation of a website, Google decided to do more to help companies get started with their online presence.
Unlike some other domain name services, setting an address private won’t cost extra with Google. You’ll be able to create up to 100 email addresses on the domain and as many as 100 customized sub-domains. Google Domains will also use the company’s own DNS servers, so visitors should get a snappy response time when they hit up your site. This means your domain will connect quickly and reliably to your website. A full set of simple-to-use, robust domain management tools will also be at your disposal.
If you’re interested in trying out Google Domains, head to the link below, click on “Manage My Domains” and then follow the instructions to request an invite code.
Google promises that customers will get phone and email support (M-F, 9am to 9pm EST). Google Domains isn’t fully-featured yet, a small group of people are currently been allowed to buy and transfer domains through it and send feedback on their experience. No doubt, this will make it very easy to set up custom domains for Blogger blogs.
