Bulk Domain SearchCheck any List of Domains and find out if they are listed here

Copy & paste any list of domains into the Bulk Domain Search and if they are listed, view them with the gathered domain data in the corresponding domain list. You can use formated lists with domains on different lines or just html or any other text format containing domain names.

How could this be useful? One example would be old droplists. You want to know what happened to these domains? Are they available, are they for sale anywhere? You can now just check that from time to time. However this is not limited to droplists! You can input any domain list. If the domains on it are listed, you will find out and can view them. It works similar to the NameJet Most Active Mail Parser, but for all supported domain lists not just NameJet.

Because of limitations with the max length of URLs browsers and webservers can handle, the domain list is stored in the database and you use a key to access it. The key is a hash created from the domain list and changes every time you enter different domains. This allows for much bigger domain lists to be supported. The current max limit is 50k domains per list and you can create as many as you want. If a list is not used for 4 weeks, it will be deleted automatically.

I'm not quite happy with this yet, but the key created by the search also works in your saved searches. However when you change the domains you want to monitor, you have to create a new key and that means you have to recreate your saved searches that use the key! This can probably be done a lot better. If you have suggestions/ideas how it should work, let me know. btw. If you use a key in your saved searches, it will not be deleted after 4 weeks!

GEO Domains3 New Columns to find GEO Domains

The GEO domain check looks for geo location names like city names, country names and a lot more in domain names. There are now 3 new columns in the column managers that might be interesting for you if you are looking for GEO domains. The GEO column is an indicator what kind of geo match the domain name has. There are now 4 geo states a domain can be in.

  • -: No geo match found
  • PA: Partial match. Some part of the domain name is a geo match. This could be BerlinLawyer.com or LondonRealEstate.com. The domain name contains a geo name plus something else.
  • CO: Combination match. The domain is a combination of geo names. e.g. BerlinLondon.com or even BerlinLondonManhattan.com. The domain name consists only out of geo names.
  • DI: Direct Hit = 100% match. e.g. Berlin.com or UnitedStates.com

The GEOC column contains the geo countries and the GEOD column is a details column. It contains the geo name that matches with some additional information. What kind of geo name it is and from what country. So for example Berlin is a German city, but it is also a city on the United States. For BerlinLawyer.com you would see Berlin in this column and when you hover over it with your mouse you would see "Germany (City), Unites States (City)". I've also added links to the columns. All of them go to google.com and contain the domain name or if possible the geo match with the country name or tag.

The GEO filters are the same.

  • only Geo Domains: show Partial, Combination and Direct
  • only 100% Geo and Geo Combinations: show Combination and Direct
  • only 100% Geo Domains: show only Direct
  • Country: select what country the geo match has to be from

The GEOD columns is currently not in the domain name search (top right corner search box), so the informations can't be used in the search yet. I need to upgrade the search cluster before I can add it there as well.

Dot Search with Multiple KeywordsSearch for up to 30 Keywords at once in all Domainlists

A lot of people are already using the Dot Search to Check all Domainlists in one go. With the Dot Search you can now use the Domain Name Whitelist filters to check for up to 30 Keywords in all Domainlist in one go.

Normally if you enter multiple words in the domain name search it only finds domains that contain all entered words. If you enter "Berlin Wall" you would find BerlinWall.com or WallBerlinExample.com, but not BerlinGermany.com nor WallSomething.com. That is because all words are combined with an AND. Written out the search is like this: Find Domains with "Berlin" and "Wall" in the domain name.
If you enter a "." in the Domain Name Search and "Berlin Wall" in the Domain Name Whitelist contains filter, you will find Domains that contain Berlin or Wall.

!IMPORTANT!: The search server still has a 5 second timeout! If you enter words that are to common without any other filters you will probably hit the timeout and will not see anything. So show me all domains containing "the or ing" will not work! You need to try out what works and what doesn't. Basically the more domains the search result will contain, the more time it will take to sort the results and the more likely it will be that you hit the timeout. Also just using the Domain Name Blacklist filters still doesn't work. However if you use at least one Whitelist filter, the Blacklist filters will also work.

All-in-one Deleted Domain ListAll Deleted Domains of the last 7 days in one Domain List

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.

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! So 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!

Four new Sedo Lists
These lists do not have the previous limitations the fixed price list had (sold domains will be removed and prices updated). The bargain list contains buy now domains with a fixed price <= 500 USD. At the moment not all domains have adwords data yet. Everything else is updated, but adwords will probably take a couple of weeks to be finished.

New Blacklist Domain Lists Filter for the Domain Name Search

2019-06-07

Group Names for TLD Whitelist/Blacklist Filter
The filters now support group names for TLD filtering. You can use "gtld", "cctld" and "ngtld" to remove or include the TLD Group. The group names with an (s) at the end work the same = gtlds, cctlds or ngtlds.

New TLD Whitelist Filter
It works like the TLD Blacklist filter. You write out the TLDs you want to see and don't have to use the checkboxes. You can however combine both if you like.
