Google has announced that a domain name search and registration service will be added to its Google Apps for Your Domain package.

The company will partner with GoDaddy and eNom, two domain registration companies, to offer the service in the US.

Registration fees are a nominal $10 (£5) per year, which will include private registration to protect personal information and will support .com, .org, .net, .biz and .info domains.

Besides search and registration, the service also includes the creation of an administrative account for managing the site and a configurator to ensure the Google Apps are immediately available on the new site.

Google Apps for Your Domain includes Gmail, calendar, shared calendaring, Google Talk instant messaging, Google Page Creator, and the Start Page for creating a home page.

The domain name service is available now.
