If course, I won't be using this as a website since it is pretty ugly (apologies for the ugly photos but I cannot even decide to remove them) but, this is not what it is made for. This free "website" offer is there to help those who don't know how to create a website and who just need to be able to be listed somewhere...in Google. A simple webpage can sometimes make it.
What I misunderstand
Google submitted plenty of new gTLD applications and offers a service using the domain name it registered from...another Registry. Yes, the .SITE new gTLD does not belong to Google but to someone else: why not use the .NEW, the .HERE or the .PAGE new gTLDs which belong to Google??? It could even have found a use for the .GOOG Top-Level Domain!
Also note that Google applied for the .SITE new gTLD but then withdrew its application after it lost it in an auction. Wrong move?
Come on Google: show some innovation here
Unless I am wrong, using sub-domains to introduce a website is "the old fashion way": no one does this anymore so:
- Why not offer to register a domain name and point it to this "My Business" website offer? Note that Google Registrar only offers to register domain names when in...the United States and a very few other countries.
- Why not offer to map an existing domain name? I searched for it this but the option does not exist...
In need of ideas?
