Google Can Not Use Registry Data As Thought

Earlier today, I wrote an entry named Theories on Advanced Link Mapping with Google Registrar, which basically said there were some out there that believe Google wants to be a registrar to have access to the contact information of every single domain name listed out there.

Nick Wilsdon from e3Internet just emailed me to tell me: (1) He was not able to comment here because the image access code is missing. Now I know why I haven't had a comment this week. I will fix that soon.

(2) I'll just quote him:

Just been talking to Ross Radar (Tucows) regarding this article:

This will be in the public archives soon enough but as a reseller registrar for them we are on their direct discussion list. His answer - Registrars only have access to the data they collect. There is no master list. Most likely, as he suggests, Google has become a registrar to take care of their own corporate registration requirements just like Amazon did. Just thought you might want to add that to stop the speculation. I tried adding a comment but the security image is missing which admittedly does give you a very high level of spam comment protection ;)

Thank you Nick for emailing me directly.
