During the ICANN’s public auction, Google succeeded in getting the top-level domain, paying just a hair over $25M for the rights to .app, This is the highest amount so far offered in history of
purchasing, triple the price of the previous record-holder, Dot Tech LLC and its $6.8 million winning bid this past September for the rights to .tech.
Starting from May 7th, users, who have so long for this can thenregister .app domains through Google’s Early Access Program, and they can pay more to secure other domains before the general public can get to them. After May 7th, .app domain availability is open to the public through sites like GoDaddy, Google Domains, or name.com. You can currently check what domain names are available through get.app.
