It is always the case that small businesses struggles to get noticed in online world. They struggles because they don’t have a budget to advertise. Google realize this fact and that is the reason Google always come up with new services that are inclined towards helping small businesses in online world.If we look at the past Google has started many services specially for small businesses such as Google places. Google also partner with big firms to offer a free website to small businesses such as GYBO & IndiaGetOnline.In
Currently the service is invite only but sooner people will be able to register a domain name with Google without any invite. This could be a big threat to companies like Godaddy which is a market leader in domain name registration services. Google decided to jump into this business because Google is a big brand. People trust Google and as per their research 55% of small businesses still don’t has a website. If Google start that services, these businesses will be Google’s target market.
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.
Google currently testing this service with fewer invite only customers and taking feedback from them. Based on the feedback they will improve their services and will launch a full fledged service for all.
Google is working towards making their customer support and infrastructure works flawlessly for this service and adding right additional services like web design tools and hosting services so that you can get all the required services under one roof. They’re working with some of the top website building providers like Shopify, Squarespace, Weebly, and Wix.com to help make that happen.
So the conclusion of this discussion is, Google is testing the domain name registration service. The service will be available soon for all of us, meanwhile you can test the service by invite only. You’ll not only be able to register a domain name with Google but will be able to create a website using the website builder tools from top website building providers.
With Google Domains, you get phone and email support (M-F, 9am to 9pm EST). The service comes with free privacy protect feature. You can also create up to 100 domain aliases with your domain and can forward them to your existing email account such as firstname.lastname@example.org . You also get other services such as domain forwarding, sub-domains, DNS management, domain management tools.
You might have been thinking that what all extensions the Google is gonna offer under this service. Well as of now we’re also unaware about what all extensions will be severed but as per Google Domain website, they’re planning to include as much extensions as possible including the recently launched like .guru and .photography etc.
We’ve requested an invite from Google and waiting for the same. As soon we’ll get the invite we’ll be able to tell you more about the service.
