Last year, Google launched Google Domains on in limited beta before opening it up to everyone in the U.S. in January. This week, Google announced some new features.

Websites on Google Domains can now get custom email addresses, choose from over 90 new domain endings, and transfer domain ownership. You can create an email address along the lines of you@yourdomain or sales@yourdomain via Google Apps for Work. You can buy domains with new endings including .life, .world, .business, .cool, .pizza, .gifts, etc. There's a full list here. You can learn about transferring ownership here.

"Custom email addresses are a key part of building your online identity. Email addresses such as you@yourdomain help you establish credibility when you communicate with customers," says Google's Ben Fried. "Setting up a custom email address with Google Domains is an optional service for $5/month/user, and with that you’ll also get the full Google Apps for Work productivity suite. Google Apps for Work includes helpful business tools like video meetings, shared calendars, online document editing and 30 GB of file storage."

"New domain name endings offer more choice and flexibility as you pick a memorable address for your business website. New endings are continuously opening up to the web, like .legal, .accountant and .services, and can help you create a name that matches who you are and what you do," he adds. "Check out some of the people on Google Domains already using these new domain name endings: sublimation.kitchen, smilesnap.social, thecooler.ninja, and marcblair.photography."
