Yeah the cctld registrars do not give such free access to their zone files. However doing daily updates on com/net/org/info/biz is trivial. It would take approximately an hour on a desktop PC to gnerate a list of new and deleted cnoib domains. From there, it is a simple question of feeding the list to a small pre-indexing program. It is all just a set of very simple SQL statements but the database size is about 30G. Tracking the transits (domains moving between nameservers) takes a few hours but it all should be easy enough even for the turnip fields of PhDs in Google. :)
Anybody can get hold of a list of the new registrations of .com..net..org.Google doesn't get all the zone files.
