By Derek Iwasiuk Google announced last week that it has added domain registration services to Google Apps for Your Domain, a
platform that allows organizations to offer tools like email and shared
calendaring to all of their users, and have them all hosted by Google
so there's no hardware or software to install or maintain.
December 18, 2006
The company has partnered with eNom and GoDaddy.com, two
industry leaders in domain registration, to offer users without a
domain an easy way to find, register, and buy a domain and start
immediately using Google services. When clients register a new domain as part
of the sign-up process for Google Apps for Your Domain, Google will work with
its partners to automatically configure everything
so it works with all of the services available through Google Apps for
Your Domain right out of the gate. Customers are also given full control of
their domain settings, so they can use their domain for other services not
provided by Google.
Google offers domains for $10 per year, which includes private
registration to protect the customer's personal information. It currently support
.com, .org, .net, .biz, .info, and expect to support more domains over
Google Apps for Your Domain includes Gmail web email, Google
Calendar shared calendaring, Google Talk instant messaging, Google Page
Creator web page creation tools, and the Start Page feature for
creating a personalized home page for users on your domain. It's
available now to organizations of all sizes at www.google.com/a.
