Unofficially obsessed with Google.

Google Page Creator mirror site on

2/23/2006 02:09:00 PM

The new Google Page Creator renders mirror pages for your sites on the domain Check the links for my site:

Google Pages:


Go ahead and try it on your own Google Page as well. Perfect mirror, right? Now you can have easier access to your Google Pages without the Google name.

Now for the investigation: The URL points to (which gives a Google Server Error). So what is Here's what I've discovered:

The Internet Archive has nada on the domain as it has no real history. A search reveals a few previously published pages, probably created by Google testers before the February 23, 2006 release of Page Creator. (A blog entry dated January 21, 2006 uses a hosted jpeg in its post. The site for this user references Stanford, meaning that this person might have had access to Page Creator as a Google tester (by virtue of connections, perhaps). Also, a forum posting dated February 19, 2006 links to a pagetastic site. The site looks like it was created in Page Creator and belongs to Anna Ravenscroft, who is married to Google employee Alex Martelli (with whom she wrote the popular tech manual Python Cookbook). My searching also reveals a link to what is most probably a copy of a Google FAQ page in "beta" that lists a question as: "Why aren't the changes I'm making in Google Page Creator being reflected on my site?" The current FAQ edits this to instead of

Looks like Google testers were for the most part obedient in not sharing their private betas, but a few slipped out...

Now, here is the WHOIS lookup info on

Data Docket Inc.

boise ID 83704 US

*Looks like Page Creator has been on Google's to-do list or project bonus time for at least a year...

And here is the WHOIS lookup info for

Google Inc.

2400 E. Bayshore Pkwy Mountain View CA

Domain Name:

Created on..............: 1997-Sep-15.
Expires on..............: 2011-Sep-14.
Record last updated on..: 2005-Jul-25 20:14:20. is registered using the same company, MarkMonitor, that Google uses for its domain registrations. The similarities end there: Google, Inc. is listed as the actual owner in its registration but in the Pagetastic domain, is listed as the owner. But is just an "under construction" site that looks more like Geocities (which is what a lot of people are comparing Google Page Creator to).

A WHOIS reveals that is also registered by MarkMonitor, but its contact info is a cryptic Japanese address. The relationship of MarkMonitor, DataDocket, and Google has been discussed before. Intelligentsia from the forum discovered at that time that

Data Docket Inc. is a Delaware Corporation that is qualified (registered) to do business in Idaho. It was incorporated 4/17/2002 and registered to do business in Idaho on 11/17/2003...MarkMonitor is a dba for eMarkMonitor, Inc. which is also a Delaware Corporation that is also qualified to do business in Idaho. Both companies have the same corporate officers as reported on the annual reports filed in Idaho.

This information was apparently from state records and so confirms that Google's registrar MarkMonitor is indubitably tied to DataDocket, which seems to be Google's disguise domain. The Googlist's speculation: It could be that some Googler was charged with creating a mirror domain for the Page Creator project and thought that taking "Page" and adding a catchy superlative suffix suited his purposes perfectly. He then registered that page under, which a user in the forums linked above suggests is used as a registration/management tool for Googlers in their 10% creativity time. This way, Googlers can make their projects live without having them explicitly attached to Google, Inc.

Ordinarily this discovery wouldn't be revelatory as Google does all kinds of backend work to support its sites and software. But, the discovery provides 2 useful tools: 1) an instant mirror for your site with a shorter subdomain URL than and 2) it gives us more solid ground for connecting DataDocket projects to eventual Google releases as discussed above.

I'd check for other sites registered under DataRocket now before Google catches on and changes their beta sites' registration info.

Just a suggestion.

Kickboy, that's exactly what I was thinking. I'm not sure how to do a "reverse" domain WHOIS though. Anyone got the secret?
