New Major Versions of Domain Management Tools for Windows

We have released new major versions of Watch My Domains ISP (v6) and Domain Punch Pro (v4). The most important addition is the support for select registrar APIs. You can now import your domains registered at GoDaddy, ResellerClub or Dynadot with a single click. We will be adding support for more registrars.

If you purchased the previous version within the last few months you can get a free upgrade, otherwise you can purchase an upgrade at a special price. Please see the product pages for more details.

Registrar API support for managing your domain names

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.

Thick Whois Transition for COM/NET Domains

The COM and NET registry is in the process of transitioning into thick whois format and the registrar whois server token has changed in the registry whois. While this may or may not be related to the transition it has caused the secondary whois lookups to not occur in all our domain name management software tools. You can easily fix this with a simple configuration change.

We will be updating all the software products on Monday (July 31, 2017) after which this manual configuration will not be required.  We have updated most of our software products.

Right click on any COM domain and select “Whois Setup > Basic Whois Settings”. Scroll down to the entry for “Whois Server Token” and enter

Registrar WHOIS Server:

as the token. Press ‘Close’. Redo the lookup.  Please don’t change the alphabet case, enter exactly as above.

Expiry Date Problem for ORG & INFO Domains

Update: Instead of this manual fix, you may also just update your installation to the latest build. If you are running the latest major version, just download the latest build and install over your existing installation.

If you are running an older version of Watch My Domains Pro/ISP or Domain Punch Pro you will have to do the manual fix mentioned below (you may also consider obtaining an upgrade).

The registry expiry dates for .ORG and INFO domains may appear blank in the various Windows versions of our domain management software tools. This is because of some recent changes in the ORG / INFO whois output and can be easily fixed with a manual configuration change.

Right click on any .ORG / .INFO domain and select…

“Whois Setup > Basic Whois Settings”

Then enter

Registry Expiry Date:

as the Expiry Date Token.  Then redo the lookups or use the “Whois Setup > Parse Registry Whois” option from the right click menu.

Please see the screen shots below.
