    Expanding the Online Frontier

    Welcome to Google’s domain registry.

    We’re really excited about the domains we’ll be offering.

    The Internet has always been first and foremost about self-expression, and the dawn of this era of hundreds of new domains marks one of the most unpredictable moments in the history of a highly unpredictable medium.

    .EDU has always meant education, .GOV government, .ORG non-profits.

    Today's new domains are infinitely more open-ended.

    There will be new homes for creativity, for business, for explorers, comedians and professionals.

    What will .HOW mean? .EAT? .SOY?

    We have our ideas, but how you develop your piece of this online real estate is up to you.

    Whether you're a dad or a traveler, a developer or a movie maker, a Japanese speaker or a tour guide, the web, happily, is what you make of it.

    Launch details for .app

    March 1, 2018

    We are currently in the process of launching our fourth open top-level domain, .app, a more secure domain for apps.

    From games to news to education to business, .app is the perfect home to promote apps on the web.

    The .app domain is a great place to showcase a unique and trustworthy destination.

    If you’re interested in carrying .app domains, you can download our RRA here. [ http://registry.google/about/rra/app/crr-rra-app-form.pdf ]

    [...]

    For now we will be exclusively focusing on launching .app.

    We are continuing to work on plans for .dev, which shall be launched at a future time.

    Stay tuned for more details if you’re interested in carrying .dev!
