Google is quietly selling its own domain name service from the same company that owns the pirbals.pirbright institute.
In a blog post, the search giant said that it plans to offer a number of services to the institute.
Pirbright Institute is part of the Milken Institute for International Studies, a nonprofit organization that promotes academic freedom and is funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
Google said that in a blog posting, it is offering its own brand of domain name services from the institute, known as DomainMarket, to the researchers.
DomainMarket will be free for researchers who subscribe to the research subscription plan.
Domainmarket will be available for $5 per month for academic researchers.
The move comes as researchers around the world continue to study the potential effects of internet piracy.
The institute, which works with academics and researchers to build knowledge, said in a statement that it would not sell domain names from its research or academic domain name server, but will be able to offer other domain names under other terms.
Domain names are part of an internet infrastructure that provides websites with a way to register domains for visitors, to access them, and to make payments for the domain name.
Domain name registrars are required by law to keep track of domain names for their users.
In a statement, DomainMarket said it has been working with researchers at the Pirbright institute for over 10 years and has sold domain names to hundreds of universities and research institutions worldwide.
The company said it plans on selling its domain name system to academic institutions across the globe.
Domain market will also be available to anyone who is a member of the research network and will be accessible through a website.
DomainMarket said that DomainMarket is the only one of its offerings that can be used for researchers to access their own research data and access their academic research database.
DomainMapper is another domain name registry that will be offering its services to academic researchers, DomainMapping said in its blog post.
