Last week, this news was just dropped on us and it caused quite a stir. Google Domains is being sold to Squareapce for an undisclosed sum, but 10 million domains are being transferred to the website hosting company from Google, the entire deal is set to be finalised in Q3 2023.
This will also change the process for existing and new Google Workspace customers. New customers will now handle billing with Squarespace and the company has committed to honour the existing pricing for at least 12 months, once the deal has been completed.
For new Google Workspace customers, Squarespace will become the official partner for a seamless domain purchase at the same time as setting up Google Workspace.
