Google to Launch Its Own Domain Registration Service

To establish an online presence, first, you must have a website. And for your website to be easily accessible, it should have a domain name. However, a recent survey conducted by Google has revealed that as of this year, about 55% of small businesses still don’t have their own website. With millions of people spending a great deal of their time logging on to the Internet these days, these small businesses are missing the opportunity to reach out and attract millions of potential customers.

This has prompted the tech giant to explore more ways to help small businesses succeed online. As part of this endeavour, Google has recently announced that it will roll out a new service called “Google Domains” in the very near future. It added that it will be inviting a small number of people to test out the service. “We thought it made sense to look more closely at the starting point of every business’s online presence—a website. And that starts with a domain name,” the tech giant wrote on its website.

In a nutshell, Google Domains is a domain registration service that allows businesses to search, find, purchase, and transfer the domain that best represents their respective business and enterprise. These domains include .com, .biz, .org, and other new domains that are being released online. As of the moment, Google Domains is still under construction.

To make sure that the new domain registration service will cater to the needs of small businesses and that customer support and their infrastructure are working like they should, a small group of people will be given the ability to buy and transfer domains through the service and provide their feedback accordingly. Google said the group’s input will help them improve the process of finding, buying, transferring, and managing a domain.

Google also revealed that it is currently working with website building providers like Shopify, Squarespace, Weebly, and Wix.com. According to the tech giant, this is to enable them to provide businesses with additional services aside from helping them manage a domain.

Although Google has yet to announce when exactly Google Domains will be completed and be available to all, many netizens are already looking forward to its official launch. “Can’t wait to learn more and for this to expand. I’d love to have access to domain registration, hosting options, and mobile website creation tools from within the Google ecosystem!” said Justin Chung, a professional illustrator.
