Google unveils invite-only domain registration service
Introducing Google Domains, the service that provides website creation, hosting, and URL transfers and purchases for your business needs.
Small businesses are a part of everyday life. Unlike some corporations and entities that find success and grow into a massive enterprise, most businesses start small, grow a little, and remain relatively small (as compared to the size of corporations).
And currently, 55% of small business owners have no website under which they advertise their products and services. Google sees this as the search engine giant’s next “enterprise.” The new service will be called Google Domains, and its purpose is to help business owners achieve website creation and receive a business URL of any kind to showcase their goods and services. “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 services – whether it’s .com, .biz, .org, or any of the wide range of new domains that are being released to the Web,” Google said in a Google Domains announcement statement at Google+. The search engine giant is currently allowing only those with an invite code to test out transferring and acquiring domains to send feedback about the performance of the service, what needs improvement, and so on.
While Google will certainly be responsible for Google Domains, it will outsource website creation and domain hosting to frontrunners Wix.com, Weebly, Shopify, and Squarespace. You’ll need a $12 annual registration fee to use Google Domains. For more information, visit the Google Domains Beta site.
With Google Domains, a company known for its driverless cars, search engine success, drones and robotics will take over the Internet in a whole new way. Where will Google pop up next? You’ll just have to continue reading us to find out.
