Google launches .APP domains with default HTTPS protocol

Uncategorized

Google is finally launching the .APP domain extension, three years after acquiring the rights to manage it. All the .APP extensions will have Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (https) by default, which means that the .APP TLDs will come with built-in security. It will protect against ad malware and tracking injection by ISPs, as well as safeguard against spying on open Wi-Fi networks.

The .APP domain extension will be generally available through the registrars from 8th May. Since 1st May, it is available to be registered as part of Google’s Early Access Program at an additional cost to secure the desired domains.

Hosting companies like Silicon House provide domain extensions.
