Google Puts an End to Domain Tasting

Google has planned to stop revenues from Adsense if the domain is less than five days old. This policy if implemented would be a disaster to websites who earn millions of dollars using the AGP or the Add Grace Period method. This is expected to be implemented before the month of March.

AGP is a privilege grace time period provided to domain registrars at the beginning of the registration of an ICANN-regulated second level domain to check the popularity and extend of usage of the purchased domain. At this time a registrar can delete the domain at no cost. Using this, registrars register millions of temporary domains and display Google Adsense Ads on them, thus creating millions of dollars in few days.

Some companies like Oversee have generated millions of dollars using this practice and would have a serious blow once the Google policy is implemented. It is also reported that one of Google’s Adsense partners has reportedly earned 3 million dollars in a month.

However, this move by Google is generally viewed as a good move and a smart policy to wade off Domain Tasters who use illegitimate ways to earn money. Reports state that as of April 2006, out of the 35 million domain registrations done, just 2 million + were permanent or was purchased.

A popular domain provider GoDaddy had reported that out of 55.1 million domains registered on February 2007, almost 51.5 million were cancelled and had to be refunded because of the 5 day grace period offer. This explains how large the market of Domain Tasting and quick money making is.

    Every computer that has access to the Internet has its own unique address and identification number. This unique address is known as its IP address, which stands for Internet protocol address. The domain name helps Internet users use the Internet more easily. So, instead of having to type the IP address, you are now allowed to use a name instead. For example, if you want to visit a website, instead of typing 206.121.156.3 you can now use http://www.domainname.com.What does it mean to register?A domain name registration company has a directory, organized hierarchically, of all domain names and their corresponding computers registered to particular companies and persons using the Internet. Your computer is associated through that domain name when you register a domain name on the Internet. You can then create a website from that computer that can be seen by people all over the world.How to register a domain nameYou can register your domain name through many different companies known as “registrars.” All of these companies compete with each other to get you to use their services. There is a directory list online of all the registrars available.When you choose a registrar to work with, they often ask you many questions before they register your domain. The information they ask you consists of your contact information and some technical information. They then take the information you provide to them and keep those records in a central directory known as a “registry.” This registry is what allows Internet users to send you e-mail or to find your website. You are also required to enter into a registration contract that states the terms and agreements of your registration of the domain name.
