Hello to all local residents,
One question that has been bothering me is how to check domain name availability without using a finger? I am aware that this may seem like a concern of the nubo-paranoids, but as I could not find the answer in the FAQ, I thought I'd ask here.

I recently checked a new zone and though I won't disclose the exact numbers, it got busy within a matter of minutes or hours. While I acknowledge that it could be a coincidence, on average only a few dozen domain names are registered in this zone per day, according to namestat (which I found through a link on this forum). Do you have any recommendations for checking domains, either one by one or in bulk? Are there any public services or software that you can suggest, or do you use your own self-written program? I did check GoDaddy, the registrar's site, but would appreciate any other options.

On a slightly different note, having spent only one day here, I have noticed a lot of skepticism towards new zones. Though I am still a novice when it comes to understanding how everything works, I believe that some short zones could be of interest, not just online but also offline. Especially when it comes to brands.

Another thing I'd like to know is how the cost of new zones is determined. Is it possible for the registration or renewal price to increase or decrease?


In regards to the new zones, you are correct in saying that throwing money away is not advisable, however, this is just my personal opinion.

To protect against logging, the best option is to use direct access to the corresponding Whois server. To achieve this, a Whois client is required.

If you have a list of several hundred thousand domain names and want to check them all at once to find one that interests you, it is possible to do so. If someone else is monitoring the logs from the other end, let them enjoy their findings.


If you are looking for a reliable domain name registrar, is a great option. They also offer a powerful tool that allows for quick and easy checking of the availability of any desired domain.

IsItWP is another service that provides a range of useful tools such as a WordPress security scanner, a site health check tool, a password generator, and a domain name generator based on the entered keywords.

Blog Tyrant also offers several free tools, including a domain name generator that works based on a chosen keyword or phrase.

Bluehost, one of the world's largest hosting companies, provides a domain whois history search service. To check the availability of a domain name, simply click on the "Start" button and then select the appropriate pricing plan.
