Removed Alexa
Removed alexa column and filters. The research list is based on the last updated alexa 1 mil websites csv from Feb, 1 2023. The domains on the list plus the corresponding alexa rank will obviously not change anymore, however the other domain infos will still be updated.


Deleted .ie domains work again


.dk drop process
It looks like .dk domains do not drop regularly anymore. The issues with it are now persistent for over a year, so I assume this is the new normal. I still check the droplist and if they do drop, you will find them in the deleted list, but I can't determine when that will be.


The alexa shut down is complete now
The alexa top 1m sites file still exists, but it does not seem to be updated anymore. The last update was 2023-02-01.


New Name Availability in TLD System
Besides the known "Name availability in TLD" system, you can now also use the new system based on the TLD Reg Column. The old system uses 34 fixed TLDs. Every name in the database is explicitly checked if it exists in the DNS. The new system is based on an index that contains all known domains. It regularly checks if the domain is still in the DNS. If a domain is not in the index, it is considered available. This doesn't work 100% for unknown domains, however it allows a faster update frequency and supports a lot more TLDs (~ 2,393). You can enter multiple TLDs, separated by a space. They are combined with an AND.
