Monitoring over 100 Deleted Domain lists every day is tedious and time consuming. Also the number of supported TLDs will soon rise to over 200 and every additional TLD makes the process of staying up to date even harder. That is why I'm happy to announce a new Deleted Domain list that combines all supported TLDs into one list.
The new combined list will keep all deleted domains for 7 days. After 7 days the domain will be deleted automatically from the list, however it will still be available in the deleted .tld list and in the domain name search. The combined list is only there to make checking for new deleted domains easier and reduce the need to check multiple lists every day. You can also just save one search with the TLDs you want to monitor, instead of multiple saved searches for every TLD.
Everything that you do right now will stay the same. All domains will be added to the deleted .tld list at the same time as they are added to the combined list. All saved searches will work just like before, however you might be able to simplify them if you want.
The limitation on 7 days is necessary, because the database tables are extremely big and the bigger the table, the slower searching gets. That is why the splitting of deleted domain on TLDs will stay for everything older than 7 days.
If you use the domain name search (.dot search) with a deleted domain list filter and a time filter, than this is basically the same. The difference is that the combined list is updated immediately (the domain name search is not instant) and that some specific filters are available, like the pattern filters that do not work using the domain name search.
The TLD filter in the combined list might not contain the TLD you are looking for. The filter is updated automatically based on TLDs that are currently in the list. If a TLD is not present, it will not be shown in the filter. This can happen for TLDs that do not have domains dropping every day. So very small TLDs or TLDs with monthly drop cycles (.jp, .br ...). If you want to save a search with such TLDs, you have to wait until at least one domain is present in the list.
