Keeping track of the dozens of domain names I own is a challenging task – especially since they’re spread across multiple domain registrars. Imagine losing a valuable domain name because the expiry notification got caught in your spam folder? I’ve experienced it. It sucks.
I contemplating building a domain management interface in Python (I’m awful at Python, so it would have been a good practice project), but decided to quickly Google around for an existing solution. I stumbled across Tiny Domain Monitor, a PHP script designed to monitor domains and provide notifications when they’re about to expire.
Domainr is a search engine for domain names that makes clever name suggestions using new and less-common domain extensions. Each query returns a list of potential domains categorized by their availability – either taken, available or for sale. A direct link to purchase or negotiate for available domains is then provided, along with basic WHOIS data from the current owner.
Domainr’s most useful feature is difficult to explain. It applies a degree of logic to the results to match the domain extension to the type of business implied by the name. For example, a search for our parent company (“Gowland Media”) returns a list of results including “gowland.media,” “gowland.digital,” and “gowland.press.”
Domainr also have apps available for Android, iOS, Windows Phone, and Chrome; so you can come up with great domain names while you’re out and about. Sure, why not? Finally, Domainr have an API to allow developers to integrate their domain generating powers into third-party apps.
