15 Domain Lookup Sites That Do It as You Type

by in Articles

Time is money, so don’t waste my time with a page reload or a click of a button!

Most of us, I mean domain names fanatics, have gone through the process of trying to find a kick ass name for a new website we are involved with. And boy, how many times you think that you just found the one, only find after the reload that it’s already taken. So frustrating!

One web technology that I really appreciate is AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML), and since the moment it found its way in web applications, things got faster and smoother, and domain lookup is no exception.

Today’s roundup is about that. The criteria: Just do it as I type!

Have We Missed Something?

    The first one seems the best, in my opinion. And yes, these are really handy. Some of the domain sellers like GoDaddy are really bulky. Although I buy through them… I like to find something faster. Also, if a domain is not available there, I usually go elsewhere to get the TLD I need.
