Netcraft [news.netcraft.com]

Google is now an ICANN-accredited registrar of domain names, providing it with yet another potential line of expansion. The fast-growing search provider is approved to sell names in seven top-level domains (TLDs) including .com, .net, .org, .biz., info, .name and .pro.

Expect a year or two long wave of consolidation in the registrar/hosting business.

Google's really moving aggressively lately.
