How Long is a Google "Moment"? – 18 Months

Remember back in February of 2005, a big fuss was made over Google becoming a domain name registrar. There was lots of speculation that Google would start selling domain names, until they declared they just wanted a better insight on domain names and they had no plans to sell domain names “at the moment”.

Well, a Google “moment” is approximately 18 months, as we learn today that the company will start selling domain names for ten bucks through their Google Apps for Your Domain service.

Now you’ve got one-stop shopping for all the services currently on the Google Apps for Your Domain platform — just find a domain, buy it, and get started. We’ll do all the behind-the-scenes configuration work for you. For now this is available for .com, .net,.org, .biz, and .info domains, but we’re working on bringing it elsewhere soon. We’re also constantly working to introduce more cool new features to this service, so be sure to check back for updates.

Ok, so technically Google’s farming out the actual registration process to GoDaddy and eNom, but they’re now firmly in the domain registration business.

    Awesome! Thanks Andy. I actually have my domain there for my Apps account, but I never realized I could actually purchase them directly from them! Thank you!
