Google Domains is a web-hosting service offered by Google[1] which publicly launched in the United States on January 13, 2015.[2] It is currently still in the Beta stage.[2]

The service provides domain hosting, with free private domain registration, free email forwarding to any Gmail address, and free domain forwarding.[2] Google does not offer a website builder themselves, but offers website building with Squarespace, Wix.com, Weebly or Shopify.[3][4] Google also lets you connect your domain name and Blogger service.[3] Google offers over 60 domain names, like .company, .florist, and .coffee.[2]

On September 29, 2015, an Ex-Googler Sanmay Ved managed to buy the domain Google.com from Google via Google Domains, and gain full webmaster control.[5] Google later acknowledged the purchase,[6] and rewarded Ved who in turn requested that the reward be donated to charity. As a result, Google doubled the reward.
