Googles Official URL Shortener

While I was browsing the web today I stumbled across a new link g.co I was wondering who this shortener belongs to. I had a feeling it belonged to google and I was right. G.co is googles official short URL. It is only used by google. Unlike goo.gl which is open to everyone.
