Google to Offer Web Site Registration for Addresses Ending in .com, .net, .biz and .info
Google is entered into the Domain business for registering Web site addresses in a move aimed at encouraging more usage of the online search leader's free software products. The company is offering its latest service in a partnership with GoDaddy.com and eNom.
Google's registration service will charge a $10 annual fee and will only handle addresses ending in four suffixes -- ".com," ".net," ".biz" and ".info."
Web sites that register their domains through Google will be automatically setup to work with several other company products, including Google Apps for Your Domain, Google Page Creator, e-mail, calendaring and instant messaging. The configuration won't prevent the Web sites from using services offered by Google rivals like Yahoo Inc., Microsoft Corp. and Time Warner Inc.'s AOL.
