Google announced today that Google Apps now offers 30 top-level domain options, including 22 country code TLDs (ccTLDs). Google has partnered with domaindiscount24.com to offer them.
“A country code top-level domain (ccTLD) such as .com.es or .jp helps companies build a local footprint on the web, and ccTLD support is one of the most-requested features for Google Apps,” said Hugues Vincent from the Google Apps team in a blog post.
“Now, businesses that wish to sign up for Google Apps but don’t yet have a domain name have plenty of local options to choose from during sign-up,” says Vincent. “Your new domain comes configured with all Google Apps services, including Gmail for your custom email addresses (@yourcompany.com).”
The following TLDs will be available to those who sign up for Google Apps:
The domains, obviously, will be registered with domaindiscount24.com. Prices for the TLDs start at $8 per year.
