Watch My Domains for Mac OS X Updated

We have updated Watch My Domains for Mac OS X to add support for automatic whois configuration.

Automatic whois configuration

The software will now automatically do a whois setup when you add a domain with a TLD that has not yet been configured. You no longer have to do manual configurations or wait for a software update. With so many new TLDs becoming available, manually configuring each TLD is not a viable option anymore. This feature will make managing domains a lot more easy.

This feature is already available in the Windows and Web Server editions of our domain manager software products.

Researching Popularity of New TLDs

Here is a free online tool to research the popularity of new or old TLDs, ccTLDs and IDNs.

We took the Alexa top million site list and then created an interface that will allow you make queries and find sites based on the rank, TLDs, strings in the domain name, Non-ASCII characters in domain names (International Domain Names).

You can use it to list all the sites that use a specific TLD (like Guru, Tools, Today, COM, US, UK, etc). You can also easily find which .GURU site ranks best, how many .TODAY sites are in the top million etc.

You can search for domains that have a specific string. For example, type in “ideas” to find all domains that have the word “ideas” in them.
