Google is a new registrar?! Really?!
Google anounced yesterday they want to sell domains and they launched an invite-only service called Google Domains. Google want to help small medium businesses to register and manage their web addresses. Google said in a blog:
"We’re beginning to invite a small number of people to kick the tires on Google Domains" and "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,"
Pow! With this move, Google will competing with companies they partnered with. The most notable is Godaddy. Now Google will be a rival of GoDaddy.
Also one of the big benefits that Google offers some perks that other companies don’t, such private registration that allow you to hide your personal information. Also Google didn’t quoting prices yet but considering the image that Google show in their website could be $12/year.
Google Domain will be not be public right now, it’s encouraging to potential customer to request invite code to test. Why?! Google says:
“we’re giving a small group of people the ability to buy and transfer domains through it and send feedback on their experience. (You currently need an invitation code to do so, sorry!) We want input on all the ways we can help make finding, buying, transferring and managing a domain a simple and transparent experience.”
You can request your code on Google Domains.
Of course, It's Google what do you expect?! Well many folks will accuse Google on favouring domains registered with them!
Now tell me. What is your thoughts.
P.S. I requested a code so I know the answer won't be automatically and I have to wait. If I got that code, I will test and let you know. :)
