Google Registry has launched a new domain extension type “.ing” that will let brands and businesses build their website in a single word.

Users can now register .ing domains as part of Google’s early access period, however, they will have to pay “an additional one-time fee”.

“This top-level domain is ready for whatever you’re interested in, whether it’s mak.ing a fun website, giv.ing to a good cause, design.ing something beautiful or edit.ing an existing document,” Google explained in a blog post on Tuesday.

Users can register for their unique domains through partner companies like GoDaddy and 101Domain.

The early access period will run until December 5, with fees decreasing on a “daily schedule”.

“On December 5 at 16:00 UTC, .ing domains will be publicly available at a base annual price through your registrar of choice,” the company said.

Google is also working on a .meme top-level domain, as per a Google Registry post from August.

The .meme domain is currently in a limited registration period, as mentioned in that post. On November 28, early access to .meme will open up, and the domain will be available for registration beginning December 5.

Meanwhile, Google’s AI chatbot Bard will now be faster and reply to your questions in real time.

“Responses will show in real-time while in progress,” according to the update.

If you can tell the response won’t be useful, a blue “Skip response” button appears, reports 9to5Google.
