Massive domain availability check

Looking for great names available for registration can be a boring, difficult and time-consuming job. It can also get depressing since most of the time you are getting the “taken” result.  Here are some examples of why someone might be looking for a new and fresh great domain.

  • New business or venture seeking for available domains
  • An existing business trying additional domains for their new product or service launch
  • Personal web site or side project

Point being is that over 100 million .com domains are taken, and there are over 220 million domains across all TLD’s. What does that mean?

Well for starters, it means most of the English dictionary are taken as domain names. This turns the process of checking domain names one by one very time consuming, boring and difficult. You need to brainstorm a lot, and you may make an even bigger mistake of building your project on a domain like

Buying an old premium LLLL domain like (which has been around since 1996) is expensive. As we now, LLLL domains are no longer available for new registration and are only available on the aftermarket. If you are looking for a cost-effective solution then the best way is to make a bulk query! Just write 50 keywords, make all sorts of combos and query WhoAPI. In an instant, you will receive available names, and choose one or two that you find most attractive.
