Domain availability checks with Javascript

As the number of TLDs, and domain names keeps growing, I think more and more companies, developers and solopreneurs will “succumb” to check domain availability with Javascript and other automated ways. Take WhoAPI domain checker for example. It didn’t take us a lot to build a powerful and unique domain checker with just a smidge of Javascript, and API. Now with just a dozen keywords, with the power of compounding you can do thousands of domain checks and potential find hundreds of available domains. Also, it’s different from every other “domain mashup” tool, because the majority of creative process and power remains in the user’s hands. What do I mean by that?

You pick the keywords, and “domain parts”

In every other domain mashup tool and domain suggestion tool I’ve seen in the past 10 years the creative process and user’s power is limited to a single keyword. No wonder the suggestion after that just suck!

Domains.com is taken, would you like realms.domains?

Take the example above. How in the world is that relevant? Sure the keyword domains in the TLD is there, but the domain “realms” could have been any word. world.domains, awesome.domains, crazy.domains, anything.domains. Not relevant, not usable.

But what if I chose a particular set of keywords, and was interested to see if there are any combinations that are available for registration, wouldn’t that be more relevant? If for some reason I particularly liked the keywords: go, good, goal, and domain, domains, names, name I could easily check 24 different combinations with 100% relevancy because I picked the keywords.

Changes to the free WhoAPI account

As much as we love to Make Internet Awesome, and help you build tools, get the domain data you need, and help you make better decisions when it comes to your company online, we have to set productive boundaries.

Due to an increasing number of created WhoAPI accounts with emails created on free email services around the globe, and the 10 minute email accounts that help prevent spamers to fill your inbox (but at the same time allow users to manipulate signups on services such as WhoAPI), we have decided to limit the use of Free account to only one week (7 days).

All the free accounts that were created before 02.02. will be canceled within 48 hours of this notice.

In the following weeks we may announce a new package (with the capabilities of a free one) for a price in the range of $5 per month or replace the free package with a $5 one all together. If you would like to share your thoughts on this decision, please contact us.
