Google launches custom domain registration service

Google has recently announced that it was beginning a private invite-only beta for its own domain registrar to help small businesses find, register and manage their Web addresses. Initially the service will be available to a small number of users.

"We're beginning to invite a small number of people to kick the tires on Google Domains, a domain registration service we're in the process of building," the company said in a statement. "Businesses will be able to search, find, purchase and transfer the best domain for their business - whether it's .com, .biz, .org, or any of the wide range of new domains that are being released to the Web."

The new Google service will allow users to purchase new domain names as well as transfer existing ones. It also offers some perks that other companies don't, such as free private registration, which keeps the site owner's personal information hidden from the public.

With this move, Google will be directly competing with companies they once partnered with. Their most notable partner-turned-rival will be GoDaddy, the world's largest domain-management company, which has faced financial troubles in recent years.

The prices are not clear yet, although a window on the Google Domains site suggests that registering a domain will cost $12 a year.
