10 Free Domain Tools I Am Most Thankful For

By on November 25, 2010

I am thankful to be involved in the domain name industry. It’s an honor to work alongside so many savvy businessmen, developers and entrepreneurs. I know many domainers have already helped mold the internet into a better place and we are just getting started.

On this Thanksgiving, I would like to give a special thanks to the select domain tools I use frequently that are made freely available to everyone.

  1. DomainTools WhoIs – Comprehensive domain history
  2. Google AdWords Keyword Tool – Keyword research data
  3. FreshDrop – Domain buying research
  4. Estibot – Automated appraisals and statistics
  5. Domaining.com – Industry news and editorials
  6. WordPress – Blogging and content management
  7. DNJournal Sales Reports – Ron Jackson reports top sales
  8. Moniker Bulk Domain Lookup – Fast and safe lookups
  9. SEOSiteCheckup – Choice SEO research tool

    What, no mention of ZFBot.com? :D It’s the single best domainer tool outside of WHOIS.

    I use a similar paid service for that type of research. ZFBot seems to be faster for searching keywords though. Thanks for the suggestion.

    I just saw a beta version of the new Google Adwords keyword tool that I wanted to let everyone know about.

    Inside adwords choose a campaign, an ad group and go to keywords tab.

    On the right side is the link for using the Keywords Tool -Â click that.

    You’ll see this screen below and, if you’re lucky – the link to the new beta Adwords Keyword Tool. Click it!
