Google Just Dropped The .COM From Its Registrar’s URL

Google announced today that they are dropping the .com from their registrar’s url Google Domains.

The domain name registration service that used changed its url today to Now redirects to

The announcement was made today on Twitter by Google Small Biz (@GoogleSmallBiz) and read:

The domain name that is also owned by Google does not currently resolve.

Google Domains is a domain registration service offered by Google which publicly launched in the United States on January 13, 2015. It was first announced in June 2014. It is currently still in the Beta stage and will not accept customers from all countries.

The service provides domain hosting, with free private domain registration, free email forwarding to any Gmail address, and free domain forwarding. Google offers website building with Squarespace,, Weebly or Shopify.  Google offers over 60 domain names, like .company, .florist, and .coffee.

  1. That they’d display the .GOOGLE version has always been a foregone conclusion. Why else apply for .GOOGLE in the first place?

    It’s significant that both .COM versions remain in use, forwarding to the same page: +

    Google is foolish to leave Google.Domains as a dead end. Why lose that traffic? Domains.Google looks backwards – especially when the service they’re marketing is called “Google Domains”.

  2. “”Now redirects to””

    Now ‘that’ is a tricky redirect, that probably only google could do! 😉

  3. I love it, we will see a new age for new GTLDS.
