WSJ.com - Amazon Has Approval To Sell Domain Names

Amazon now has permission to register Internet addresses for any individual or business that wants a distinctly-named Web site or e-mail address. Amazon is not currently operating an Internet registrar yet, according to a spokeswoman for Icann, adding that it typically takes newly-accredited registrars several months to begin registering Internet domain names. Amazon was approved to register domain names ending in ".com," ".net," ".org," ".info" and ".biz," according to the Icann spokeswoman.

Hmmm, I wonder what Amazon is going to do being a domain registrar. Kind of an interesting thing to look for more news about in the near future ...

I’m wondering about the registration fees and if they’ll be comparable to other domain registration places. Then, will Amazon offer redirection to a specific web page or DNS for a web site? Lots and lots of questions, but you’re right... this is something to watch!
