I've always had a good experience with Google Domains with the sites I've worked with.

What do you like best?

I like that Google Domains is so easy to use, and it's very nice that everything can be linked to one account, since it would all be through Google. I also appreciate that it's user-friendly and for the most part, self-explanatory. It's also great to host several domains in one place so they're together and can be updated at one time.

What do you dislike?

My least favorite thing about using Google Domains is that there isn't quite as much personalization and easy-to-view aspects, as compared to something like GoDaddy. It's definitely easy enough to use and understand, but I think the setup could be a little better, more condensed and less broken up. Some of the aspects could be confusing to the unexperienced eye, so I think just designing a better layout would be beneficial to potential users and current users.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend Google Domains because from what I've experienced with it, it's simple and cost-effective.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

One huge benefit to using Google Domains is that everything can potentially and likely be linked together - mail, spreadsheets, documents, domains, etc. It is easy to find once in your account, and it's also pretty cost-effective, front what I've seen. I do think GoDaddy is better, but Google Domains is definitely efficient and worth checking out. I would just compare the cost for because otherwise it's very comparable, even with the same TTL which many domain hosting programs do not have.

Sleek Simple Domain Management

What do you like best?

One of the most straight forward domain management tools I've found. Also allows you to easily connect with some of the most popular WYSIWYG website builders on the market, including shopify.

What do you dislike?

If you use Google Domains to sign into your website builder, you can have issues with verifying payment plans and approving anything with billing because your website builder will ask for a password, but you don't have one because you sign in with Domains. If you use Google domains, be sure and go in and create a password and email login for your site as well.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Start moving all your domains to a google domain account. it's the easiest Domain management system and doesn't appear to be all that expensive compared with other services!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Quick and easy purchase and upkeep of multiple website and domain properties without being constantly "sold to" like with GoDaddy and other competitors who try to trick you into purchasing products you don't need and signing up for expensive long term renewals on things you don't need.

Easy Peasy!

What do you like best?

This domain builder is the easiest to use and beautiful, too! I easily transferred all of my hard work from my previous domain with very little effort on my part.

What do you dislike?

There isn't much to dislike, the transition from this to word press was so smooth! That it makes it all so worth it! The options are endless for the amount of things domains can do!

Recommendations to others considering the product

The price is so reasonable and the value is immense! For only $12 a year is a deal in itself! If you are on the fence about this product, just give it a chance. You won't regret it!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

There are a multitude of things a business would like. It offers ad insights and traffic monitoring. You can also run ads or sign up for insights on clicks.

Easy to use without extra sales tactics

What do you like best?

I like the simplicity of this product. It is easy to search for a domain to register, or navigate through your current domains. The features are easy to find and all is nicely organized into a single simple layout. It is full featured, where many other registrars are lacking some small items, like DNSSEC for example. While using the product, there are no annoying sales pitches to bother you or distract you from why you are there.

What do you dislike?

The domain registration does not include any sort of domain as many others do. It is domain only. For someone who may not be very experienced, it might be somewhat harder to get setup and running compared to some of the more automated systems you can use, but you will give up some of the features that are available on a solution like this.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give them a try if you want a fully featured registrar in a lite weight interface.. If you are not in need of included email, this service is top notch.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

An easy to use service without clutter and sales pitches all throughout. This product solves exactly that, lets me get in and out quickly. It allows me to keep domains, analytics, and all Google products all together vs needing a separate service to register domains, which is very nice.

Best way to purchase standard domains

What do you like best?

Getting a domain via Google just makes more sense than any other provider. They aren't gonna bombard you with ads and try to upsell you products or services. Also, if you use G Suite it makes even more sense to choose Google Domains over any other provide because of the integration and easy billing options.

What do you dislike?

The only problem with Google Domains is that you only have access to the basic domain extensions. The new cool domains are only available on GoDaddy and other providers. Hopefully this will change soon.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need a standard domain go with Google Domains. If you need a special or new domain, still need to use another provider.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Being able to purchase domains for clients. Google domains are cheaper than their competitors and they don't charge for domain privacy which normally costs an extra $10 with some other providers.

An easy to use one-stop-shop for your domain needs

What do you like best?

The simplicity & ease of use; this product is very intuitive and comprehensive making it very easy for even the most ignorant person to use.

What do you dislike?

Lack of support for many of the less popular domains; makes it a little more difficult to manage all your domains.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do it!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Google domains simplifies our domain management experience by providing a cheap and powerful one-stop-shop for domain purchasing and management. The UI makes it easy to set up and use, and provides powerful insights about your domains. While it does not offer support for all domains, it has access to a majority of them, which is more than I can say about certain competing products.
