Google has announced the invitation of a small number of people to test Google Domains, a new domain registration service which will enable businesses 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.
When Google Domains launches to the public, you’ll be able to buy, register and transfer domain names through the service. Unlike some other domain registrars, Google won’t charge you extra for private registration i.e keeping your details private for free.
You’ll be able create up to 100 email aliases with your domain, such as help@your_company.com or sales@your_company.com, and have them forwarded to existing email accounts, like firstname.lastname@example.org.
Google Domains will allow you customize your domain with up to 100 sub-domains, such as blog.example.com and and also allow you point your domain name to an existing domain and website eg forwarding www.example.net to www.example.com.
According to the features of Google Domains, when you use the service to manage a domain, you get to use the same DNS servers as Google. 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.
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. If you want to try the service, head to Google Domains website, click on “Manage My Domains” and then follow the instructions to request an invite code.
No doubt, this will make it very easy to set up custom domains for Blogger blogs i.e to change from .blogspot to .com.
What’s your take on this?
