Oracle and MS SQL Server Support in Watch My Domains Server / Cloud Edition

We will be adding Oracle, MS SQL and PostgreSQL database support in Watch My Domains SED very soon. Currently Watch My Domains SED supports only MySQL / MariaDB.

This may be a good time to upgrade to the latest version 3, if you are using version 2 or purchase the latest version if you are planning to do so in the near future because there could be some price revisions after the changes.

Preserve Historical Whois Data in Watch My Domains SED / Cloud

Watch My Domains SED will normally overwrite the previous whois data in the database with the new one  when a new lookup is performed. However, it is possible to preserve the old data. To do this add the following to the config.php file.

$config_data['enable_data_history'] = "whois";

Make sure that you have the latest build.

After you do this, the whois data will be logged along with the time-stamp to the history data table in the database. Both registrar and registry whois are saved. You can then use the Details tab in the lower pane to access the old whois records.

 

 

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.
