    [h=1]Google testing custom domain registration service[/h]
    Still in an invite-only beta, Google Domains is geared toward helping small businesses without a Web presence purchase and transfer domains.

    Watch out, GoDaddy. Google is making moves on your turf.
    It looks like the search giant is getting into the domain registrar business; Google has a "beta" site available at domains.google.com.
    The service is invite-only for now, but it looks like it will provide a bevy of features typically found on registrars such as GoDaddy, Namecheap and Hover

    Google Is Getting Into Domains. Should GoDaddy Worry?

    Google wants a slice of the domain market now. Haha that will make a lot of registrars grow restless with Google now being part of competition. Godaddy supremacy is now under a latent risk. That will surely force major registrars to offer even better quality and cheaper services to avoid Google's Fat fish to take almost everything for itself. Remember how regretful were lots of websites after choosing not to associate with Google search engine in its early stages.

    Somehow I missed this news. That's interesting that even Google is getting into domain registration business. I think the big card they have on hand is trust and possible integration with their other functions. Otherwise, I don't see how they will be much different compared to GoDaddy which we have known for years.

    I believe Google is a registrar to promote Google Apps and sell custom gmail for domains.

    You know a company is big when they branch off into yet another direction and the completion goes down in stock value. That's power right there.
