.google is a brand top-level domain (TLD) used in the Domain Name System (DNS) of the Internet. Created in 2014, it is operated by Alphabet Inc., Google's parent company. It is notable as one of the first gTLDs associated with a specific brand. The company's first usage of the TLD was with com.google, an April Fools' Day joke website that hosted a horizontally mirrored version of Google Search. The domain currently hosts multiple Alphabet Inc. products and services, and plans exist to move other Alphabet properties to .google as well.Google also owns a number of other top-level domains, including .goog (for sites such as partneradvantage.goog and pki.goog), .gmail (a Brand TLD relating to its Gmail service), .gle (for shortened URLs such as goo.gle and forms.gle), .chrome (for sites such as apps.chrome and the target server of hosted Chrome Apps such as calculator.apps.chrome) and .youtube (for sites such as about.youtube and blog.youtube). The .chrome, .gle, .gmail, .google, and .youtube TLDs have all been included in the HSTS preload-list; as a result, popular web browsers will only connect to a webpage in one of those domains using HTTPS.
