The US-based tech giant has made a move to improve the lives of Australians and people living overseas by introducing a new service that will help them register for a US-registered domain name.
The service, called Humana, was launched by Google and is available to anyone who registers an Australian domain name with the search engine.
The company has since rolled out it to more than 200 million Australian users.
It will be available to users in the US, Canada, the UK, India, New Zealand, South Africa, and Argentina.
Users can also set up a Google Home or Google Voice call forwarding service, which is also free.
Google has also set aside $25 million to be spent in the first six months of 2018 on a new campaign to help people register their Australian domains.
“We are committed to helping Australians connect with Google, and to ensuring that their names are registered on Google in a way that makes sense for their personal and professional lives,” a Google spokesperson said.
As part of the scheme, users will be able to use Google Voice to register the domain names they wish to use.
While the new services is a welcome change for people who live overseas, it is still not a free option for Australians who are in the United States.
Australians are still required to register for their US-domiciled domains with the US Copyright Office.
In order to do so, users must pay $1,000 for each domain name they want to register.
There is a limit of 10,000 names per year that can be registered for each US state, city, or town.
If a US state has more than 20,000 people registered, that number is capped at 50,000, according to Google.
Although there are some exceptions to this, the number of US residents in a state is capped by the US Census Bureau at 40 million.
Australia’s domain registration fee is now free for US residents.
