Seven years after its launch, Google Domains finally comes out of its beta phase

Google has just formalized the availability of its domain name registration service. Unveiled in 2014, Google Domains was until now only accessible in beta version and by invitation.

It took a little over seven years for Google to officially launch its domain name registration platform. Google Domains, announced in 2014 and launched in 2015, has finally come out of its beta phase. The service, which was previously only available by invitation, is now available in 26 countries.

The platform, which already claims several million active domain registrations, allows acquiring more than 300 domain name endings. With Google Domains, the Mountain View firm intends to enable SMEs to ensure their online presence, in particular by providing them with a number of tools to easily create a website without having any knowledge of code. Google obviously promotes its own free Google Sites platform, but also offers paid third-party partner services such as Wix, Shopify, Squarespace, Weebly or BlueHost.

Google Domains customers also benefit from the integration of tools such as Google Ads to promote their online services, Search Console to obtain statistics on visits or WorkSpace to obtain a personalized e-mail address with the reserved domain name. .

For those who are interested in buying a domain name, Google is offering until April 15 for the launch of its service, a 20% discount with the code DOMAINS20 and 25% with the code FRIENDSOFDOMAINS for the purchase of a first domain.
