Google Domains Acquired by Squarespace


We are excited to announce that Squarespace has entered into a definitive asset purchase agreement with Google, whereby Squarespace will acquire the assets associated with the Google Domains business, which will be winding down following a transition period. This purchase includes approximately 10 million domains hosted on Google Domains spread across millions of customers.

Squarespace says it will “provide additional incentives to encourage Google Domains customers to build a website with Squarespace and adopt other Squarespace offerings” which means if you have a domain purchased through Google, you can look forward to a lot of spam email.
