Google Domains is a domain name registrar operated by Google.[2]

Google Domains offers domain registration (including private domain registration), DNS hosting, DNSSEC, Dynamic DNS, domain forwarding, and email forwarding.[3] It also offers one-click DNS configuration that connects the domains with Blogger, Google Sites, Squarespace, Wix.com, Weebly and Shopify.[4][5] The service is accredited by ICANN.

Google Domains was publicly launched under a beta test mode on January 13, 2015[3] and still remains in beta as of March 2021.[citation needed] Anecdotally, Google became a domain name registrar as early as in 2005.[6]
