Domain Name Discovery API

Domain Name Discovery API

Find the perfect domain name for your website with NLP, improved search and automated whois lookups.

One of the very first steps of building a website is to choose a domain name — one that’s memorable, and that tells people who you are. It’s the first part of your site that people will encounter, so make it count!

Searching for a domain name manually can be very exhausting and time-consuming when we consider the number of registered domain names on the Internet (over 360 million). You might even think all good names are already taken.

To make sure you find the right domain that is available, we’ve built Domain Name Discovery API. We've been processing more than half a million whois lookups for years in order to find an undiscovered domain name that might be valuable. This is the API we've put our years of experience on. We hope everyone will benefit from it.

How does Domain Name Discovery API work?

Domain Name Discovery API just needs a search term in order to operate. It analyzes the search term and suggests the best domain name candidates by applying many techniques:

  • It will append and prepend the most frequently used terms (more than 20.000) in the English dictionary. This is not just a simple concatenation.
  • It will apply a text merging algorithm called portmanteau, which generates trendy and memorizable words that do not exist in the English dictionary.
  • With the help of AI, the API is intelligent enough to detect plurals, nouns, adjectives, verbs, and adverbs. It will automatically handle, prepend, and append words accordingly.
  • In the last few years, using creative suffixes such as ly, lytics, let, ist, ify have become quite popular. We have a large dictionary of those popular suffixes. The API will also use it to discover some cool domains.

Enhance positive vibes through your domain name

We want to leave positive feelings on the people who interact with our brand. The API performs sentiment analysis to predict the overall feeling of the generated domain names and eliminate the negative ones. This is a unique feature that is only possible with our API

Automated Whois lookup

Once possible domain names are generated, the API performs actual whois lookups on those domain candidates and identifies which ones are available. This is done on our servers, and thanks to our huge number of servers the whois lookups on thousands of domain names will be finished in just seconds. You don't need to worry about scalability and rate limits.

Please note that, due to its complex procedures, it may take 20-30 seconds to generate names and perform whois lookups before sending the results back to you. We are constantly working on enhancing it. Thank you for your patience.

Privacy and security

Except for obvious legal purposes, we do not store any information on our servers. We only take the search parameter you provided and generate you the list of available domain names you can use for your next business.

Can I build a domain name search website on top of your API?

Sure you can. This is one of the common uses of this API. Anyone can just subscribe to this API and start building their next domain name search business or facility.

Supported TLDs

You can provide which TLDs to search for with the tlds parameter. Supported TLDs out of box are: 'com', 'me', 'net', 'org', 'io', 'co', 'club', 'biz', 'mobi', 'info', 'us'
