This has launched too: https://cloud.google.com/blog/products/networking/introducing-cloud-domains/
I've been using this for 3 months or so now? Still can't transfer domains into that.
It’s useless to me until you can transfer domains in, but I am very much looking forward to that
I use Route53 on Amazon right now. It works well but it’s clunky. I’d rather have them in Google Cloud
i probably don't have as many domains, but yea i would definitely love to consolidate
I used it for workspaceadmins.org and
imap.rip? hahahaha. That’s awesome
yep. I needed to test the service and I have a gripe about imap...
and my very first purchase was 22d.email... but that one is boring lol
Need to mark this for reading later
Does (will) this replace domains.google.com or is this intended to be used primarily for GCP projects? Google rolling out a service with similar functionality to another Google service? What could go wrong?
My understanding is that they both use the same back end service, but domains.google.com is really more of a consumer product, competing with things like godaddy, etc. and Cloud Domains is more for developers, engineers, etc. It’s a lot more like Amazon’s Route 53. Much more friendly to IAM style access, API’s to control, create, change, etc. and I’m sure you’ll be able to do load balancing based on location, and deeper integration in to their DDOS tools and all that. Things like Route 53 are actually often the back end of many of the other types of companies.
For me personally I’m primarily looking forward to the IAM type access. Things like domains.google are not very good at having multiple people able to access DNS records with granular permissions.
We also manage domains for many customers and being able to just throw them in to Google Cloud billing would be amazing instead of tracking things across a bunch of consumer solutions, or trying to unravel the nightmare of AWS billing
Agreed on all points. Domains.google.com is a nightmare to manage across a team. We have domains registered with namecheap, route53, and google domains. None of them are ideal.
We use UltraDNS these days. Managing around ~600 domains.
billing with domains.google.com is a pain. we got a credit card charge for this. what is it?

I’ve been slowly moving my company domains from Hover to Google due to some… dissatisfaction over Hover’s support, but Google Domains is definitely limited. If this is more robust, and they fix the no transfers thing, I’d move to this entirely.
Yeah. It's still in preview. I just stumbled upon it in December already lol
