Google Registry New Domain: Google Registry has unveiled a new domain extension, ".ing," allowing brands and businesses to create single-word website domains. During the early access period, users can register these .ing domains, but an additional one-time fee applies. In a blog post, Google stated that this top-level domain is versatile and can suit various purposes, whether it's crafting a creative website, supporting a cause, designing something beautiful, or editing a document.

Registering .ing Domains

To acquire these distinctive domains, users can go through partner companies like GoDaddy and 101Domain. The early access period will continue until December 5, with fees decreasing gradually over this period. Starting at 16:00 UTC on December 5, .ing domains will be publicly available at an annual base price through the user's chosen registrar.
