The web service, which is still in beta, was originally just for purchasing and setting up website domain names, but now they&#39;re adding some other features.</p> <p>For $5 per user per month, you can get <a href="http://googleforwork.blogspot.com/2015/10/custom-email-apps-and-more-for-Google-Domains.html">email addresses that feature your domain names with Google Domains, as well as access to Google Apps for Work</a> (Gmail, Google Calendar and Google Drive.) Google chief information officer and vice president Ben Fried announced this in a blog post. Also, it will now be easier to change the person in charge of a given domain name.</p> <p><img src="http://www.techspot.com/images2/news/bigimage/2015/10/2015-10-06-image.gif" /></p> <p>Integrating Google Apps for Work is a way for Google to bring in more people to its web services. Gmail as a standalone service is hugely popular, but Google Apps fall behind advertising in how much revenue they generate. The updates to Google Apps and Google Domains can be seen as a diversifying component for the company.</p> <p>Back when Google Domains was launched, in June 2014, other similar services saw their stock prices drop. So even though domain management isn&rsquo;t Google&rsquo;s flagship service, they have been able to make an impression.</p> <p>Read the <a href="https://support.google.com/domains/answer/6010092?hl=en">full list of new top-level domains</a> (TLDs) to see what cool one you might snag.

    Useful, however $5 a month? Not a lot (peanuts) but wouldn't it be cheaper to get the domain from a registrar for a yearly fee which would be cheaper?

    I suppose. However I am using Google Apps as well with DNS pointed to Google from my registrar. I suppose, you get ease of use, hassle "free" ecosystem with this. I am not hating, don't get me wrong.
