Google Promotes Domain Names to Small Businesses

July 20, 2011Domaining, Domainnamewire, google, intuit, small business,, UncategorizedComments Off on Google Promotes Domain Names to Small Businesses

Google evangelizes web sites for small businesses.

TexasGetOnline.comRemember all those domain names Google registered last month?

Now we know what they’re for, and it’s good news for domain name owners.

Google is going state-to-state, city-to-city to help small businesses get online. They’ve teamed up with Intuit to offer a web site builder, domain name, web hosting, and Google Places listing free for a year.

Right now they’re in Austin holding in-person workshops to help businesses get started. Google has advertised the workshops extensively around town.

According to, over half of Texas businesses don’t have a web site.

To be sure, you should expect these businesses that don’t have web sites to decide they need to buy an existing domain rather than register an available one. But as more businesses get online they’ll use more web services. A rising tide lifts all boats.
