Sure, you’ve been able to buy domains from Google for a while, but they weren’t actually from Google; the company would just handle the transactions.
Well now if looks like that’s going to change, and Google will be offering it’s own web hosting services.
Big G has been testing their upcoming service, Google Domains, for a while now, and even though it’s not ready for a big rollout just yet, Google is already offering the service to a limited group of customers now.
In the traditional Google fashion, the tech giant wants to make the process of purchasing and setting up domains a painless one. Google also plans on setting up partnerships with website building partners like Wix, Shopify, Weebly, Squarespace and Wix.
The implications of Google getting into the domain business are huge. The company and the internet pretty much go hand in hand at this point; Google has helped to shape the internet into the amorphous beast it is today: how users interact, search, and function on the web today are a direct result of Google’s prominence.
Google now selling and operating its own domains raises some questions: namely, will the search engine giant give priorities to sites that are hosted by Google?
