I have a bad news for all the big domain registration companies like Godaddy, Namecheap that big G Google is all set to launch its own domain registration service for the websites known as Google Domains. like every other service of Google Google domains is also launched in Beta now and you need an invitation to get domain but soon it will be available for everyone.
Google will be proving domain names in $12 and along with it 100 email addresses, free privacy protection, 100 customized sub-domains will also be available which means Google is going to give tough competition to other domain sellers like Godaddy. Godaddy is largest domain seller right now on the internet having 58 million domains registered. they charge $7.99 for privacy protection and email services for $4.99 while Google is going to provide both of these features for free.
Google will be using same DNS servers for Google domains registration which it is using on its other products. Google has also announced to provide full customer support for their new service by Email as well as Phone. they will also be providing the option of domain forwarding.
Google has started to enter in domains because they think that more than half small businesses are still not having websites so they have decided to launch Google domains to help them make online presence. however Google will not be providing hosting. they will be limited to providing domains.
its not yet clear that which and how many types of Top Level domain names Google will be offering at start.
