    If you type whois followed by the domain name directly in the search box, Google will give you the registration and expiry dates of the domain.

    Example: whois digitalpoint.com

    Nice feature, quicker than going to some whois website and checking it and it just reminded me a domain of mine is expiring soon.

    Yes it is a new feature of Google, and that link you posted works fine. It may not be switched on in all Google's yet, try Google.com if you are using a country Google TLD until it updaes to all DC's.

    According to Google's whois, their domain (google.com) expires on 9-14-2011. Maybe they'll forget to renew it and I can pick it up for 9.95. :)

    Try using Google.com instead if you are using .co.uk

    It will work for all domains, Google just hasn't pushed the feature to all datacenters yet.
