You can finally put the power of Google behind your domain name. Yes, after a long beta testing period of seven years, Google has officially launched its domain registration service to take on GoDaddy and others.
Google first launched its domain service in 2015 to provide users with a way to purchase a domain name without dealing with hosting providers. However, it took the company more than seven years to finally remove the “beta” tag and make the service available to everyone. So, although it is not technically “new”, it is now available to everyone.
As of today, Google Domains is available in 26 countries, with more coming soon, and Google will continue to serve the “millions of active registrations” currently using the system. If you finally want to start your own website, Google is celebrating this long-standing occasion by offering everyone a one-time 20% discount with the code “DOMAINS20”. And yes, those who want to transfer and use Google’s service can enjoy the same discount.
So what does a domain with Google do for you? Well, the company offers over 300 different domain extensions, 24/7 support from a real person, simple pricing, top-notch security, tons of tools, and an email address. professional email, all from one place. Additionally, Google Domains has access to “High Performance DNS”, which is the same system that Google itself uses.
Then, like any other domain service, Google claims that users can quickly create a beautiful website, blog, or e-commerce site with no coding experience necessary. Plus, you can monetize with Google Ads, access analytics, and more. You can learn more on our sister site CloudSavvy.
