Search through all Domains in the Database in one goWithout entering a keyword, just using filters

I noticed that some smart people have figured something out I thought was impossible and I want to share it with everyone. You can use the domain name search in the top right corner without a keyword. That makes stuff like this possible in one search without checking every domain lists separate.

You can basically search through all domains in the database using your filters in one search. Of course you can also add the "only new last xx" filters to keep track of newly added domains. To make this work, you have to enter just a dot (.) into the search field and click on search. After that you can setup your filters. This was not intended to work, but it does and it makes certain searches a lot easier.

The domain name search uses a separate search engine, running on separate servers. It combines all domains from the regular database in one index. The index is getting updated all the time, but it is not a real time index! If you want to monitor the .com drop, you better use the domain list for that!

It provides a very powerful full text search, but it has also all domain attributes attached to every entry. The focus of this system is the full text search and that is very fast. Only using the attributes to search is possible, but it is a lot slower and that is a limiting factor! There is a 5 second timeout defined for any search. If your search takes longer, you will not see any domains! The more domains your search result includes the slower it gets and it might not work at all. Being very specific is key here. Show me all .com domains will not work!
