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.

The company has partnered with eNom and, 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 time.

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
