Google to sell Domain Names

Google announced on Friday that it has joined the website registry business.

Google has teamed up with well known registry firms GoDaddy.com and eNom,

to create an application that allows people to lay claim on their very
own “.com,” “.net,” “.biz” and “.info.” domain suffixes. Such a
registry will only cost the buyer $10 annually.

The benefit of registering with Google will be access to several
other Google products, including e-mail, calendaring and instant
messaging. This won’t however prevent buyers accessing services offered
by Google’s rivals.

Google Apps for Your Domain has been described as a streamlined way
for an individual to host web addresses that can be personalized with
their names, hobbies or interests.
Their motivation no doubt is to cash in, by selling online advertising
targeted at those lured to the website by its host of free
applications.

Myles says:

This is another good example of Google getting more than anyone else out of the internet infrastructure
