Google Rolls Out Domain Name Registration Services
Mountain View-based Google has rolled out new domain name registration services, the firm announced late Thursday night. The new domain name registration features are part of the Google Apps For Your Domain service, and are live as of last night. Arizona-based GoDaddy and Bellevue, Washington-based eNom, a domain name registrar that is now owned by Richard Rosenblatt's Santa Monica-based Demand Media, have partnered with Google to provide the new domain name registration services. Demand Media's Rosenblatt said in a statement that the partnership demonstrates the firm's strategy of building a new media company on top of a leading domain registrar platform. The registration services from Google will be available for a $10 annual fee. The services currently only cover .com, .net, .org, .biz, and .info domains.
