Google continues its massive expansion into all facets of the Internet by starting a domain registration service. The Google Domains service is currently in closed beta phase and seems primarily oriented towards businesses. Users of the service will be able to register and transfer .com, .biz and .org domains, more TLDs are expected to follow at a later date.

The search giant didn't reveal details about pricing but a screenshot on the Features page reveals a price of $12 per year. Special features include the ability to create up to 100 e-mail aliases with your domain and free private registration to hide your contact details in the WHOIS data.
A domain name, your address on the Internet, says a lot about who you are and what you do. New domain endings like .guru and .photography can help you find a meaningful address that stands out on the web. Every domain includes easy forwarding, branded email (you@your_company.com), simple management tools and other helpful features.
