Daily Update E-Mail for Saved SearchesNamed Ending Filter changes behavior of the Update E-Mail

This might be interesting for you if you use the daily update E-Mail for saved searches. Someone asked me about a feature a couple of weeks ago and I said it is not possible yet, but I might add it in the future. What I completely forgot was, that I already implemented it a long time ago, but not mentioned it anywhere.

Normally the daily update E-Mail checks for newly added domains matching your saved searches, but if you use the Named Ending Filter to show domains that end today or tomorrow the behavior changes. The update E-Mail now contains the domains matching your search that end today or tomorrow and not newly added domains.

I use this myself for the PreRelease Lists, because I'm not interested in domains that get newly added here. They might get renewed a day later and will never be available to me anyway. I'm more interested in domains that are close to the enddate and that is why I added this feature.

This of course works for all lists that have enddates like auction domains, pending delete or PreRelease domains.

Filter Rework Part2New style and new filter

It took a while, but now the whole filter section is updated. I did not remove any filter, but I moved some of them. Let me know if you notice anything not working correctly.

  • Domain Name Pattern: You can now enter multiple pattern (separated by a space) to filter your search and you can also blacklist multiple pattern you do not want to see.
  • Ends in days: This filter lets you define a range of end days (auction enddate or dropdate), so for example now you can only see domains ending in the next 5 or 10 days.
  • TLD Filter: I added a lot of new gTLDs and with that the system now supports over 800 TLDs. To keep an overview I split the TLD filter into 3 separate boxes (gTLDs, ccTLDs and new gTLDs) and I added a general filter to include or exclude a group of tlds.
  • Geo Domains: This is completely new. It lets you filter domain names that contain geo names (country names, city names, regions ...).
    only Geo Domains shows all domains that contain a geo name. This filter alone is not really helpful, but if you combine it with a keyword filter you can get good results.
    only 100% Geo Domains shows domains that are a 100% match with a geo name, so a country name, a city name or a combination of country and city.
    You can also select the country you are interested in, to see only domains that contain a geo name from that country.

The new filter were all suggested to me by users of ExpiredDomains.net, so if you have an idea for a filter let me know about it.

New Domain Category FilterAdwords Products & Services Category

Something I haven't realized was that the Adwords API returns one or more categories for every search term you submit. Now you can filter domains using those categories. You can find the filter under Adwords & SEO Filters. Alone the filter is not very useful, but if you combine it with the other Adwords filters it might help you out.

At the moment only the first two levels of the category tree are used in the filter select box, but the domains are tagged using the full category tree. I've decided not to use the full category tree, because it is huge and I'm not sure how usable it is. You can check it out here. You can take any ID from the list and replace it in the url to test it out (eg. &fadwordscategory=10021).

It is only running for a while now, so not all domains are tagged yet.

Download Domain Names30.000 Domain Names per Textfile

You can now download the domain names from your current search result in a text file format. It is a simple format that only contains the domain names and no additional data. Because of that I increased the limit of the text file download to 30.000 domains. You can find the new download link next to the csv export link.

Filters in the Member AreaNew user requested Filters

Today I found the time to add new filters users requested. Some requests were made a long time ago and I'm sorry it took me so long.

  • Domain contains ... AND: You can define multiple keywords in this text field seperated by a space. The domain name has to contain all of them to be shown. The normal Domain contains filter combines multiple keywords entered with an OR, so all domains containing one of the keywords are shown. With this new filter you can combine them with an AND. I also added more     info icons to the domain name filters. When you mouse over them you get a more detailed explanation how the filters work.
  • no consecutive Hyphens: This is for users that don't mind hyphened domains, but don't want consecutive hyphens. When activating this filter, you will see hello-world.com, but not hello--world.com
  • Adwords max Competition: You can set the maximum competition you want to see. This can of course be combined with min Competition and there is a seperate Filter for every Adwords Country supported.
  • max WBY (Whois Birth Year): Before this you could only define min WBY. For Example min WBY of 2000 would show domains with WBY 2000, 1999, 1998... With the new Filter you can now get Domains on the other side of the selection. You can of course combine both filters and get ranges.
  • max ABY (Archive.org Birth Year): Same as max WBY, just for the Archive.org Birth Year.
  • Case Sensitive Domain Pattern Search: The pattern search is now case sensitive! Before you could enter lower characters and the filter would automatically change those to upper characters and use them in the pattern.
    Now the lower characters will remain and specify a specific character at this specific position in a domain name. For example searching for LoLLo will only show domains with an o at the second and fifth position (fordo.com or bommo.com). This also works with numbers. Searching for CoCCoN0 will find fordo20.com or gommo60.com.

Please contact me if you encounter any problems with the new filters and if you want to see something else on ExpiredDomains.net do the same!
