    Right now, it's possible to buy a domain name using Google services. You can start the process on Google's own pages, process the transaction through Google Wallet and manage that domain through Google Apps -- but you didn't actually buy that domain from Google. That's about to change. Today the search giant announced that it's testing Google Domains, a registration service that will shift the company away from its dependence on companies like GoDaddy and eNom.
    Google says it wants to enable a simple and transparent experience, but it's not quite ready for a full launch just yet -- at present the service is only available to a limited group. When it does launch, however, Google says it will have partnerships with several website building partners, including Shopify, Weebly, Squarespace and Wix. Have an idea for a new website? Check out Google Domains at the source link below and request a registration code.

    I read that earlier this morning.

    They are also not going to charge for privacy, which could be compelling depending on the overall price.

    I've already requested my code but would only use it for non-blackhat businesses.

    It depends on whether you will be using Adwords or not.

    What would AdWords have to do with it? It doesn't affect current domains at all, and I'm pretty sure Big G wouldn't be bold enough to make any changes to that with their own domains either.

    Personally I might even go for some general domains (like mysurname.com), but I can see why this wouldn't be beneficial for much of IM, and even less for black hat tactics.

    haha, they don't charge for privacy cause they will already know everything and they don't care about the rest
