Verisign launched DomainScope.com today which they say “a new domain name discovery tool designed to enhance the search for unique, relevant domain name choices in the .com, .net, .tv and .cc top-level domains”, for which it is the registry for.
“Incorporating the same functionality found in our DomainFinder, DomainScore and DomainCountdown tools, DomainScope replaces these tools and allows users to focus their domain search and uncover new domain name registration opportunities in one place.*
“DomainScope enables users to focus their search and uncover new domain registration opportunities, while providing more information about a domain name prior to registering it. To start the process, users simply enter keywords and DomainScope’s engine renders suggestions for domain names that are available.”
“From there, DomainScope enables users to discover domain name registration opportunities through learning about the recent history of a domain name, understanding a domain name’s DNS traffic patterns, and knowing which domains are available that are receiving traffic.”
“DomainScope offers a robust toolset for developers and domain investors, with access to a number of application programming interfaces (APIs) to connect to their own websites or applications.”
We are excited to offer those looking for their next great domain name a product that offers distinctive name suggestions, and relevant details about a domain name. We’ve consolidated our domain name acquisition tools into one easy-to-use website and will be adding new features in the future that add to the name discovery process.”
Registered users of DomainFinder, DomainScore and DomainCountdown can still access these tools during the products’ sunset period, which ends Dec. 15, 2013.
