    Ajaxwhois is a service showing you in real time (while you are writing) if that tdl (com, net, org, biz, info) is avaliable.

    beware of them.

    They steal that domain from you. They record it in their database and if they like it, it is gone. You become a slave of them doing keyword and niche selection.:eek:

    So does Hostgator. Don't search for domains thru them. I learned that the hard way.
