How to switch your DNS to Google DNS or Cloudflare DNS on Windows 10?

What happened to googleforwork.com? Welcome the new cloudconnect.goog domain

So GoogleforWork.com is now being redirected to cloud.google.com and the same applies for its subdomain connect.googleforwork.com.

Earlier the campaigns at google work communities are now hosted at www.cloudconnect.goog

It is interesting to note that it uses .goog and not .google TLD, here is some more info about .goog TLD

In the past we have seen .google tld for many purposes like AI to Everyone at ai.google     and Google’s design lab and research on design technology

The future will be interesting in terms of TLDs when banks, tech giants and telecom companies are switching their websites to their own custom TLDs and regular people can hardly remember the apparently new gTLDs.
