New Fields and FilterDNS Status Columns, Yandex TCI, Twitter/Facebook Stats, New Languages

You can add the new fields using the Column Manager . The checks already run for a while, but not every domain has a result yet! Also I had to reset some columns because of errors.

Yandex TCI - Thematic Citation Index

Yandex TCI is similar to Google PageRank. The higher the TCI is the better. It seems to be very selective what domains have a TCI. I currently only have 14,000 domains with a TCI 10 or higher in the database and I checked millions. Also it is possible to "fake" it by redirecting a domain on another domain. If a TCI is fake, the check resets the value to 0. You can read more about it here. It is also called TIC in some places. I guess that has something to do with the translation.

New DNS Status Columns

You can now see the DNS Status for the Domain Name for 9 more TLDs. The new TLDs are: .us, .ca, .uk,, .co, .eu,, .in and Already included for a while now are .com, .net, .org, .info, .biz and .de. For CNOBI I have the zone files, so checks are really fast and easy. Unfortunately you can't get zone file access for a lot of TLDs so for .de I'm making real DNS Request to the NS Servers and the new TLDs are implemented the same way as .de. I made a mistake with the Status DNS Check for and .in and had to reset all results, but now everything is working correctly. You will see an exclamation mark for TLDs without a result and the usual green/red bubbles for available/taken.

New Languages for the Keyword Filter

You can now filter Keyword Domains for Croatian, Slovenian, Romanian, Hungarian, Malaysian and Indonesian. I do not speak any of these languages, so I'm not sure how good the word lists are. Please let me know if it is total gibberish. For Indonesian I only have a very small list of 6,000 words, but for Croatian the list contains 600,000 words. As a comparison, my English word list has 350,000 and the German list has 1,400,000 words. If you know of places where I can download a dictionary or word lists for a language I currently do not support, please let me know (translation is not necessary). The format doesn't matter, because I process them anyway. You can also enabled the new languages for "Always Camel Case Domain" in your User Settings.

Facebook and Twitter Stats

If you are looking for domains that already have a social background this might be helpful to you. You can now see a bunch of Facebook Stats and Twitter Tweet Count. As far as I know you can't get Tweet Count for the full Domain. That is why I call the Twitter API twice for the Domain with and without www. I might add an additional column that has the higher value to make sorting and filtering easier. A related new feature is the Namecheck that works similar to the Status DNS Check. It lets you see if it is possible to get the Domain Name as a Facebook or Twitter Username. Unfortunately I found a Bug with this and had to reset almost 13 million results...
