Google Gets Into Domain Registration

Google's service will charge a $10 annual fee and only handle addresses ending in four suffixes _ ".com," ".net," ".biz" and ".info."

(i hope posting this link is fine)

This seems to be an interesting development. Does anyone know of a google link where we can see it in action?

Can anyone think of a reason to pay Google $10 when you can get the same service from an established provider for less?

Curiosity.

The link in the first post isn't working any more (they must have not liked being inundated with our WebmasterWorld traffic), but here is a link to the official Google announcement on their blog about "One Stop Shopping"

[googleblog.blogspot.com...]

Yes, of course it's connected up with Googlepages and they'll do all the back_end setup work for domains too, which was not easy or even possible with most registrars and hosts before, since shared hosting doesn't come with capability for configuring C-names except in a few odd, unusual cases.

Is there someone else doing a domain name & private registration for that rate? I thought private registration was an add-on everywhere else, but I concede I haven't been watching real close.

It costs about double for private registration elsewhere, unless there's a special deal running.

Google will probably buy up eNom. It'll continue to play the internet giant theme.

i didn't get a clear understanding of this: so is it reasonable to expect that a domain with the search term in it will be displayed higher on the natural search results?

for example, if i search for "foobar", should www.foobar.com/net/org show up high on the algorithmic results?

thanks - sorry if this is already discussed, just couldn't find anything.
