Google recently emailed me with its new service called Google Domains. After reading through the feature set, I decided to transfer one my domains for a trial. So far, I liked it. My reasons:
- Low price ($12 per year), which includes the private registration for the WHOIS database.
- I use email forwarding, and I have had issues with other registrars’ email forwarding services. Despite tech support reps doing their best, I still had issues with emails not arriving (to my Gmail account). This is my primary reason for looking for another registrar.
- Speaking of Gmail, it makes sense for me to try Google’s domain services as they integrate with both Gmail and Google Sites, which I use. I am hoping that email forwarding issues will be gone for good.
- I also like the management tools provided with Google Domains. They are easy to navigate and understand.
If you use Google tools and are looking for a domain registrar, I now recommend it as my first choice.
