This seems to work better and I will keep it like this for now.


New Domain Name Search System (search box, top right corner)
It looks the same and should work the same, but everything is new. The hardware, the search software, the api and the integration are completley new. If you notice any negative changes, let me know. The "exclude Domains on your Watchlist" filter now also works here and the new system can handle regex. This allows the wanted/unwanted character filters to work.


Pending Delete and Deleted Domains
Pending delete and deleted domains are now also supported.


Removed Facebook/Twitter Name Check
The update doesn't work anymore.


Removed Quantcast Column and Filter

Removed Uniregistry domain registar links

Deleted .mx / Domains
The public deleted domain list from is unfortunately gone. I can't find a replacement for it on the new registry website, so at the moment I rely on the .mx / droplist I create myself. If anyone know of a replacement, let me know.


Updated the Domain Name Status Section on the Domain Details Page
The filter buttons now also copy a list of the selected domains (taken, available, ...) into your clipboard (CTRL+C/CTRL+V). Also the requested domain is now always the first entry in the list.


Domain Name Lookup added to the Bulk Domain Search
The bulk domain search now has an option to "Find Domains based on Names without TLD". Without this option enabled, the bulk search only parses full domain names with a TLD (as expected). However with it enabled, you can now also enter any name and the search will find all known domains with that name.
For example: You can enter "hotel". This will currently return 595 known domain names in a multitude of TLDs and it will check if any of these are currently in a domain list. Just give it a try by entering your favorite domain name keywords.
Note: This will only find domains that exist in the current domain database. If you enter a name that is currently only known in two TLDs, it will only return two domains! Statistics
