Yes Google, you heard it right because Google has announced its new service of Domain registration. It’s still in a beta version for now which is pertinently named as “Google Domains”.
This Google Domains works exactly as your other domain providers do. It helps your buy and manages domain names. Moreover, it also helps to build your site, set up email addresses and manage hosting.
These days, buying and managing domain registrations and hosting are being very painful for many people. Even the named companies get us in trouble that’s why Google with the aim of fixing all the troubles, came up with a seamless new service to let you find, purchase and manage your domains.
