Google became a domain name registrar as early as in 2005. Google Domains was publicly launched under a beta test mode on January 13, 2015, and the beta phase ended on March 15, 2022. As of February 4, 2022[update], it supports more than 300 top-level domains.
On March 15, 2022, Google announced that Google Domains was officially out of beta.
On June 15, 2023, Squarespace concluded an agreement to purchase the Google Domains business, including approximately 10 million registered domain names. The Google Domains service will shut down after the sale and transfer of domains is completed, expected in the third quarter of 2023.
