Cooperation

domaindiscount24.com starts cooperation with Google Apps

St. Ingbert, 2012-08-20, domaindiscount24.com has signed an agreement with Google to register new domains for Google Apps customers. Google Apps is a suite of Google communication and collaboration products that can be used with a user-defined domain name. App is short for application and refers to web-based application programs for office productivity for mobile devices and PCs. Via the end customer portal domaindiscount24.com domains can be registered and managed. It is part of the Luxembourg based KeyDrive S.A. holding whose registrars manage more than 6 million domains together for more than 300,000 customers worldwide. Business customers that would like to use Google Apps may use their own domain, which must be provided for registration for the service. The cooperation between Google Apps and domaindiscount24.com enables all business customers without their own domain to register one directly from domaindiscount24.com during the Google Apps registration. The service is effective immediately.

The newly registered domain will be automatically configured to work with all Google Apps services. The addition of new country-code top-level domains (ccTLDs) from domaindiscount24.com expands the total offering of local domains available to customers around the world, for example .ES or .DE.

Google Apps includes Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Drive, Google Sites and more, and are provisioned with the user’s domain so email is sent from you@yourbusiness.de instead of you@gmail.com.

'We are very glad to offer our services to Google Apps' customers. They are now able to take the advantages of domaindiscount24.com and to register and manage their domain via a personal web interface which is available in six languages in real time', states Alexander Siffrin, CEO of Key-Systems GmbH. domaindiscount24.com is part of the Key-Systems GmbH, an international IT company based in Germany.
