.google is a brand top-level domain (TLD) used in the Domain Name System of the Internet. Created in 2014, it is operated by Alphabet Inc., Google's parent company.[1] It was the first registered branded gTLD to be associated with a publicly accessible website.[citation needed] Plans exist to move other Alphabet products and domains to google.[2]

Google Domains is a domain registration service at https://domains.google.[3][4] In addition, Google also owns the domain .goog[5] (for sites such as https://partneradvantage.goog and https://pki.goog) and .gle[6] (for shortened URLs such as goo.gle and forms.gle), while operating numerous other websites in domain .google, for example:
