Google Shuts Down its Domains Business & Sells Assets to Squarespace   

In a surprising move Alphabet, the parent organization of Google announced that they are shutting down Google Domains business division, and the assets of that division is being sold to Squarespace. Now, this decision could come because of couple of reasons. One could be the cost cutting measures that Google already announced. Or it could be a strategic move from Google to focus on other areas of business since domains and URLs come with their own complications. But Google Domain has been a popular service with more than300 domain endings. So if you as a nonprofit, church or ministry have domains under Google domains, then you might want to look out for this change. Lookout for an email from them regarding the transition. Please share this news and pass it on to your website team or whoever manages your domain registrations.
