Google Web Hosting Service - Unlimited Storage, Web Analytics

Google, an ICANN-accredited registrar of domain names, could soon expand into the web hosting industry. Google is approved to sell names in seven top-level domains (TLDs) including .com, .net, .org, .biz, info, .name and .pro.

Google Web Hosting recently made a proposal to host some of the content of the Wikimedia projects on Google Servers. Wikimedia Foundation are continuing to talk with Google Hosting about creative ways in which they might provide support to the project.

Blogger, a free Google Web Hosting platform already has the largest user base. Google can easily acquire some of the most popular web hosting companies and use it as a base to build a business around. Alternatively, Google could simply buy up tons of customers from smaller hosts.

Web hosting requires tons of servers, data centers, and skilled technical support staff. Google already has all that. Google also acquired Urchin that offers web analytics to customers for free. Most business customers want Email (gmail) and Web hosting (google) from the same company.

Google still doesn't have a free web files hosting platform like Yahoo Geocities or Angelfire or Lycos Tripod. We just hope Google quickly enters the webhosting arena and offers unlimited space like GMail and I am will to see Google Ads in return.

Wishlist for Google Web Hosting Service - Unlimited server storage (GMail), Visitor Tracking (Urchin Or Google Analytics), Site Search (Google), Google Hosting Software for Desktop (like Picassa, GDS), Monetization with Adsense, Domain Parking with Adsense Domains.

If Google offers web hosting, there's little doubt: they will win, if they carry it out as well as they did Gmail. And Web Hosting is ultimately about service. And we all know how famous Google Adsense are for their excellent customer service.
