Exclamation Google to start selling domains

Hi all,

This one is good news for consumers, but not great news for those of us who derive revenue from selling domains, either at the registrar or reseller level.

Google applied for ICANN accreditation a few years ago, but didn't make any rapid moves into the space, which lead some to believe that they were seeking accreditation for a reason other than for the retail sale of domain names. This week, though, they revealed that they will indeed be selling domains direct to the general public, with the beta launch of Google Domains.

At the moment, the service is invite-only, but no doubt Google is gearing up to open the floodgates once they've worked any niggles out of the system.
