How to Search & Find Domains in Domain Punch Pro

If you have a large number of domains in Domain Punch Pro, you may want to search for domains based on their length or occurrence of a word. For example, you may want to list and then move all domains that are 7 characters or less into a specific category.

You can do this using the ‘Containing Word’ filer and the ‘Find’ Dialog. Please see the screenshot below.

You can already do this in Watch My Domains ISP using the Find dialog (Ctrl-F keypress). Domain Punch Pro doesn’t use an actual database for storage so the option to do this is slightly different.

Containing words filter in Domain Punch Pro

Example Searches

  • Use web* to find domains that start with the word web
  • Use *web to find domains that start end the word web
  • Use #9 to find domains that are 9 chars long
  • Use #<9 to find domains that are less than 9 chars long
  • Use #>9 to find domains that are more than 9 chars long

Permanently Categorizing Filtered Domains

After you have filtered all the domains that you want, you can move them into a category of its own.

  1. First create a new category by right clicking on the ‘Domain Categories’ tree header (left pane) and selecting ‘Add New Category’.
  2. Select all the filtered domains in the domain table (right click, ‘Select all domains’ menu)
  3. Use the Categorize selection (right click, ‘Domain Categories > Categorize Selection’ menu) to move the domains into a category of its own.

Domain Name Filter Pro Updated

We have updated Domain Name Filter Pro to support better export of data.

You can use Domain Name Filter Pro to filter, clean and process huge domain name lists, automatically import domain drop lists from different public sources, split domain names into component keywords, sort domain names based on word counts and more.

Domain Name Filter Pro works only on domain names, it doesn’t support multiple columns of data. If you import a file containing multiple columns, only the domain names will be imported.

After you filter your lists it is possible to create an output file containing rows from the original data file that correspond to the filtered domain names. To do this, select the “Export Original” ribbon bar option. This will work only for the last imported data file, so avoid importing data from more than one file.

The export could take a while depending on the sizes of the original file and the data that is being exported.

Daily Historical Domain Zone Data

We have updated our tool that displays the daily / historical domain data from zone files. You can now view the daily data for previous days starting from December 11 2017 or see the combined data for the last seven days. You can also select between added domains and deleted domains.

You can use the tool to find domains that are probably being registered for phishing or domains that may contain your trademarks.

Please don’t contact us for any domain lists. This is simply an open, free statistical tool to monitor zone deletions & additions, we don’t process this information or provide any additional data other than what is already available at this site.


Addition to the zone file doesn’t always mean that the domain was registered recently. Depending on the registry, domain names are removed from or added to zone for reasons like lack of name servers & status change. Similarly, being present in the deleted list doesn’t mean that the domain is or will be available for registration.

New Domain Name Research Tools

We have added two new domain name research tools at Domain Punch. These are part of the new premium tools and are free to access while in beta. We may require a registration for access in the future, and some parts may be made available only to our customers.

The Advanced Daily Domain List can be used to check the domains that were added or deleted from the zone files during the last 30 days.

The word search tool is for checking the new domain lists for trademarks and keywords. You can use it to find domains that may be used for phishing, domains that contain your trademarks etc.

Which Domain Name Software Product Should You Buy?

We have a large number of software products related to domain names and domain name management. So we often get asked questions about what product to buy or if there is a single product that does everything.

There is no single product you can buy, however our products fall into three distinct categories.

If you want to search and filter deleted domain lists from different providers use Domain Name Filter Pro. This will allow you to find good domain names from large lists. You can even import various drop and deletion lists with a single click from within the software. Domain Name Filter Pro is available only for Windows.

If you want to create domain names from keywords and alpha-numeric templates and then check for availability use Domain Name Analyzer Pro (Windows only). Mac OS X users can use Watch My Domains for Mac.

If you want to manage your domain name portfolio and keep track of expiry dates, name servers and a lot of other stuff use one of the domain name portfolio management software products.  You can use our handy comparison table to find a suitable domain management solution.

There are some bundle offers too.

Use Domain Name Filter Pro to Analyze Zone Files

Did you know that you can use Domain Name Filter Pro to analyze domain zone files?

If you have access to the Centralized Zone Data Service of ICANN you can download the zone files to your local hard disk. Unzip the downloaded file and then use Domain Name Filter Pro to import it using the “Import Entries >> Local File Import” option.

After importing, remember to remove duplicates from the list (right click within the list and select “Remove Duplicates” from the menu).

Once you have the domain names in the software use any of the many filtering options to analyze the domain names or use the domain name splitter to find component keywords.
