  • Google has sold its Google Domains business to Squarespace.
  • The service will eventually be shut down as part of the deal.

Google stepped into the domain registration arena in 2014 with Google Domains. Now, the company has decided to sell the business to Squarespace.

Squarespace announced the news late yesterday (June 15), confirming that it will acquire Google Domains’ assets, including roughly 10 million customer domains hosted on the service. Unfortunately, the business “will be winding down following a transition period.”
