Google Domains, the company’s domain registrar, will lose its beta tag after it first launched more than seven years ago, Google announced on Tuesday. The service is now available in 26 countries, and the company says it has “millions of active subscriptions”.
If you sign up with Google Domains, you can choose from over 300 different domain endings, gaining access to “High Performance DNS” (Google says it’s the same infrastructure it uses for itself), “24-hour customer support from real people,” and more.The company is also offering users 20% off “any single domain registration or transfer into Google Domains” for users. new and old have code DOMAINS20.
However, if you register a domain with Google Domains, you still need to actually build a website to use with that domain. Google isn’t surprised when it recommends its Google Sites product, but it also recommends “premium partners,” including Wix, Shopify, Squarespace, Weebly, and Bluehost.
Google Domains has been in development for a while – it first came out in invite-only beta in June 2014 and has been open to public beta in the US in January 2015. Even Gmail is not in beta for a long time.
