    [EN] Google testing domain name service

    Google has unveiled plans for its own domain name registration service.

    The firm is "testing" a service that will allow consumers "to search, find, purchase and transfer" domain names for their business.

    An increasing number of businesses are looking to set up their online presence, boosting demand for domain names.

    Google's move comes just as GoDaddy filed papers to raise $100m (£59m) via a share sale.

    GoDaddy is one of the world's biggest domain name registration firms.

    "This puts them in direct competition with GoDaddy," said Keith Timimi, chairman of VML Qais, a digital marketing service agency.

    According to its filing with the US authorities, GoDaddy had 57 million domains under management at the end of last year and generated revenues of $1.1bn.

    Google is also one of world's most popular online search engines.

    Mr Timimi said there have "always been rumours within the industry that Google was a domain name registrar". However, he said that Google had mostly used that service internally "to fight web spam and to help provide cleaner search results".

    "Now it is leveraging that ability to offer this as a commercial service."

    Google said it has tied up with four firms that specialise in building websites - Squarespace, Wix, Weebly, and Shopify - to help businesses create one of their own.

    The firm said it was also working at providing "hosting services from a range of providers, as well as domain management support" to customers.

    Mr Timimi explained that Google's latest venture could also help it better market its other services such as AdWords to business keen on boosting their online presence.

    "The logic is pretty obvious - they can up sell their existing services," said Mr Timimi.

    But he cautioned: "With their dominance in search, this may get some to worry if Google would use that data to help promote their services more than others".

    What Google's latest business move means for trademark counsel

    By Trevor Little
    June 24 2014

    The news that Google is to get into the business of selling domain names will send shockwaves through the registrar world. However, the news is not only significant for the domain name industry - should the move greatly increase public awareness of (and engagement with) new gTLDs, it will also lead to an even bigger online world for trademark counsel to police.

    Google has been a lead player in the gTLD expansion, ranking second only to Donuts in terms of application numbers. As well as placing itself in position to be a major registry player, however, the company has now revealed plans to wade into the registrar market through the launch of Google Domains. The service is currently in beta phase and users need an invitation code to buy or transfer a domain, but the Google Domains features page reveals:

    One-year domain registrations will cost $12, with no additional cost for private registration.
    Users will be able to create up to 100 email aliases with each domain.
    Up to 100 sub-domains can be associated with each domain.
    Google Domains will come with phone and email support (Monday to Friday, 9am to 9pm EST).
    Users will be able to access a range of website-building tools (for an additional cost).

    To date Google has directed those wishing to register a domain name to a ‘Google partner’, stating: “Google itself doesn't register or host domain names. But we've partnered with companies including GoDaddy.com and eNom.com who offer domain registration and hosting to our customers. When you purchase a domain during sign-up, you get an account - outside of Google - with one of these partners.”

    This launch of Google Domains, then, represents a significant shift in its historical position and will place the search engine giant in competition with these current partners. As well as having a significant impact on the registrar landscape, Google’s latest move could also significantly boost wider consumer take-up of new gTLDs.

    It is unclear at present which domains it will be selling, but new gTLDs are clearly in its plans, the company noting: “Over the next few years, hundreds of new domain endings like ‘.guru’ and ‘.photography’ will become available. We will be working to provide you with as many options as possible so you can find the most relevant and meaningful names as you get started online.”

    While an applicant itself, the decision to highlight two TLDs operated by others suggests that Google intends to sell the full spectrum of strings, and the company’s online footprint and marketing power will clearly help bring the availability of gTLDs to a wider audience.

    While existing registrars may not welcome the news that a major new competitor just hit the market, gTLD registry operators will more likely welcome the opportunity to market their strings through Google. For trademark counsel, the announcement is a significant one as it could directly impact the size of the online world they have to police for trademark misuse.

    Dar coisas de graça apenas destrói o mercado. Eles darem mais por menos é o tipo de competição saudável para o mercado.

    Dar de graça também tenho a mesma opinião sua. rs
    Agora vir com preços agressivos, isto e bom, movimenta o mercado.

    Primeiro, preço agressivo é estratégia de mau concorrente. Mas no caso o buraco é mais embaixo porque o "preço agressivo" é apenas aparente pois parte dos clientes estará pagando também as comissões das empresas de hospedagem e web design "recomendadas" pelo sinistro, o que não é novidade para ninguém aqui. Aliás, eu acho até estranho o pessoal aqui achar legal qualquer coisa que o Google faz, mesmo porque é sempre contra o interesse dos provedores de hospedagem, mas essa nova aventura beta do Google é bastante explicita no prejuizo que pretende causar.

    @5ms não e apoiar. Mas aquela tempo em que a UOLHOST veio com preço baixo, fez durante anos o preço dos registro cair, mais pessoas foram incentivadas a ter um domínio do que um endereço .hpg ou kit.net até mesmo blogsport.

    O nosso mercado e competitivo e apenas torcer para a Google não entrar não irar resolver nada.
    Eles indiretamente já vendem todos os outros serviços, este de registro era questão de tempo.

    Como disse acima, isto movimenta o mercado, grande parte das empresas de host costumam acomodar-se.
