Google Now A Domain Registrar

Google is now an ICANN accredited domain registrar:

Google Accredited Domain Registrar # 895

This could be fun, maybe Google will have free domain promotions or cheap deals for adwords advertisers. ๐Ÿ˜†

If Google’s prices were the best buy, would you purchase your domains through them? What if Google gave higher weight to domains that were registered through them? How many of us are going to buy domains through Google just to find that out? ๐Ÿ˜†

Could this be a step to foiling all the linking networks out there? Or digging out private whois information?

Ah who knows. But I suspect this isn’t a ‘non-event’. Time will tell where Google plans to take things and what they’re going to be doing with this.

Thanks to:

Axandra Search Engine News And BetaNews for the heads up.


I've been trying to find my way online for more years than I care to admit.
