Google launches Google Domains, its own domain registration service

Internet giant Google launches a new service for businesses called Google Domains on beta testing which allows businesses to register domain, you can transfer a domain name or buy a new one; you can also have custom domain options like .co or .photography.

Every business needs a website to reach users around the world and help them find information about the businesses. But research shows that almost 55% of small businesses don’t have a website yet.

There are plenty of big companies in market that provide domains at nominal rates, like GoDaddy, BigRock to name a few. So will Google Domains give stiff competition to other domain companies?

Currently, it is beta testing and only a few number of people can test it; but you need an invitation code. For that, enter your desired domain name and click on search, it will ask two questions, your email id and whether you have bought domains before. On submitting you will receive an invitation code. Use the invitation code to register your domain.

Google plans to gain feedback from users and help with entire process of building a website from purchasing domain to website creation tools, domain management and customer support. Google is working with top website building providers like Shopify for ecommerce, Squarespace, Weebly and to help users through entire process of building a website.
