In my last post, I shared some domain prefixes and suffixes that help find great available domain names so I thought I’d continue on this path of sharing some more tools that I’ve personally been using to find and manage my growing domain portfolio.
Searching for domains
InstantDomainSearch.com – Instant domain availability search
Of course you can search for domains in plenty of different places but a while ago I came across this website that gave me instant availability status as I typed, an ajax domain search.
Pretty cool, I find having instant feedback like that, allows me to find domain much more quickly than if I had to click a submit button and wait for a page to load every time I wanted to check for a domain. When you see that perfect domain is taken, try adding one of your favorite domain prefix or suffix to it and instantly see the availability. It’s a huge time saver.
On another note, being a web developer, I always have a few ideas on doing things that could be added to websites I visit and it’s no different on how this site could improve.
I’d like to see it give out suggestions on alternative domain names when the one you have typed is not available, similar to how other sites give you alternative when the domain you searched for is taken.
