Hello. I require a comprehensive inventory of all domain names registered within a specific domain zone.
Is there a resource or method to obtain this list either through manual accumulation or automation that someone could recommend? Thank you.


It is improbable that a comprehensive database of registered domain names exists, aside from those held by the zone registrar. Even then, gaining access to and extracting the entire database would be a challenging task.
but, for gTLDs (such as .com, .net, .org), there are free resources available such as those provided by Verisign and ICANN. Access conditions for other country-code top-level domains must be obtained from individual zone registries. There are also paid services such as Domains Index and Premium Drops that offer access to zone files.


The benefit of acquiring a previously owned domain name is that it may retain SEO parameters, visibility, and thematic links from other sources on the internet, which can be advantageous for search engine rankings. Domain names listed in Dmoz are at least one year old, giving them an edge over newer domains when promoting a website.

A list of available domain names with established parameters can provide immediate earning potential, bypassing the need for the site to gain trust from search engines. Drop domains are previously registered domains that are now available for purchase, yet thorough consideration of all indicators and weighing of pros and cons must be undertaken before making a selection. Careful research is required to determine which previously owned domain suits one's needs, especially if purchasing multiple domains.
This involves checking the SEO parameters, web archive presence, and search engine glue, as well as determining the domain registrar.
