Google domains are now available in 26 countries and offer a discount to commemorate the occasion.
Seven years under beta, Google Domains, which has a cool dot and slash icon, claims to have millions of active registrations and claims to be the easiest way to locate, buy, and manage a domain.
It boasts connectivity with other Google services, especially for business owners, and offers over 300 domain endings. When integrating a website with Search Console, Google App Engine, or Cloud Run, for example, you don't need to verify TXT records. Workspace can also be linked to a domain and used with Google Sites or Blogger, as well as third-party platforms like Shopify, Squarespace, Wix, Bluehost, and Weebly.
It uses the same infrastructure utilized by Google in terms of reliability, including a high-performance DNS and 24/7 support. There's also one-click DNSSEC to prevent DNS spoofing and cache poisoning attacks. On WHOIS and RDAP, you can also keep your contact information private for free. If you intend to move in the future, you can also export DNS records.
Plans start at $7 per year, with.com starting at $12. Meanwhile, Google Domains is offering a 20% discount (up to $5 off) on one domain registration or transfer-in using the code DOMAINS20 to commemorate the transition out of beta. It's free until April 15 for new and returning users.
