How the Domain Availability Check works
ExpiredDomains.net uses two different ways to check the availability of a Domain Name. DNS and Whois check. Read about how they are different from each other and how they are used on this website.
Why you should always check Values
The information for Domains on ExpiredDomains.net are gathered when the Domain gets added to a Domain List, but they might change right after. Read about why you should always check Values before making a decision to buy or register a Domain.

Switch the Dictionary Word Check to V2
New domains that enter the system are already using the new api version. Old domains are currently being rechecked. This will take a couple of days. The new version now supports numbers in domain names, if the numbers do not split words. (e.g. email4you.com => Email4You.com, but not exp2ireddomains.net) Numbers in domain names do not count as words (e.g. email4you = 2 words). If you use the dictionary filters and you don't want numbers, use the "no Numbers" filter in addition. The support for hyphens splitting words was removed (e.g. l-e-e-s.com would not find "Less" anymore). Combining words with a hyphen still works (e.g. expired-domains.net => Expired-Domains.net). The Finnish dictionary I was using wasn't very good, so now I'm using a new Finnish dictionary supplied by a Finnish speaking user. I hope this one is better.
Updated the Camel Case Tool
New option "Show all Word Matches". If multiple word matches are found in the domain name, shows all of them separated by a | (Example: toastup.com => ToastUp.com | ToAsTup.com). Also the tool now uses V2 of my wordmatch algorithm, that supports numbers in domain names (Example: email4you.com => Email4You.com). However numbers can not split words! 24Email4You360.com works, but em2ail4you.com would not work, because the "2" splits the word "email". I also removed the possibility of hyphens splitting words. Before l-e-e-s.com wold find the word "less". Now this is not supported anymore.
