Google registering MusicKey ccTLDs. Is this the name of its new music service?
Usually, when I see a company registering a bunch of similar domain names, I can track it down to a new product announcement.
I’m a bit unclear about recent Google domain name registrations for “MusicKey” domain names, but I suspect it might be for YouTube’s new subscription music service.
On Monday, the company registered MusicKey.co. It has registered MusicKey in many other ccTLDs including .co.uk, .de, .fr, .at and .jp.
Yet the company hasn’t apparently made a play at MusicKey in many gTLDs. .Com, .net and .org are all registered by other parties. .Biz and .info aren’t registered.
I’ve googled around to find out what MusicKey might represent to Google. A big key is that the company also registered YouTubeMusicKey.com, which makes me think it is for the company’s new subscription music service.
Any other guesses?
