Google Domain Name Registrar

    This post is exactly what the topic says, visit my blog to see the post or read it here:

    Google has registered with the ICANN and IANAnearly 2 years ago. However, Google is not using it’s membership ID (Number 895) to sell domain names. They are allowed to sell the following domain names:
    .biz
    .com
    .net
    .info
    .name
    .org
    .pro

    Now many people may ask, why would Google pay $2,500 to fill out the application to become a domain name registrar and another $6,500 to become a domain registrar for the above domains? The reply Google gave was that they are using their priveleges to help better their search results and AdSense for Domains Program.

    Just think of what else Google will do to better their Search Results! This is why Google is the #1 Search Engine, unlike Yahoo! or MSN, because they are concentrated in many other fields that don’t even relate to the internet!

    I have a feeling $9000 might seem like a lot to you (and me), but to Google it's a drop in the bucket.

    It lets google have access to the whois records, including those not available to the general public and lets them try to weed out the spammers. Of course, Google will probably move into the domain selling and web site hosting market at some stage as well, a bit like Yahoo.

    I think Google might be planning a complete package for webmasters. If they will ever fully implement it remains to be seen.

    It might look something like this:
    Google Hosting: High quality hosting, loads of bandwidth and storage space, at a very affordable price.
    Google Domain Registration: Cheap domain registrations
    Google Analytics: Site stats
    AdSense: Advertising revenue for all those sites.
    Adwords: Generating advertising for your sites

    The beauty of everything? You'll be able to pay for it using your Adsense revenue and the like (GWallet perhaps) and you'll be able to manage all your sites using one login.

    Interesting idea, and makes a bit of sense if you view it in the long run. With more website publishers out there, more revenue goes Googles way, more advertisers use their services, and it makes it easy for them to manage the worlds info.
