Does anyone know where I can go to do a search on a company to show all the domain names it owns?

Thanks!

I am not aware of a service like this on the web. However, I do see the need and I will make that service available soon to the web! Internally I can do this right now. I would love to know if anyone has heard of such a service besides me!

Limted searches for Company names are still available using the "name" function within Netsols' whois.

Ah yes, NetSol will give you upto 10 matches if they are NetSol customer.

Thanks for the tip. I did not know about that feature.

I just went to NetSol & ran the "Name" whois on a company I know of that has about 20 Domain Names and it did not yield but 6 of them.

I see a huge need for such a tool.

Thanks Again!

So do the registrars. I've seen reference to plans to rebuild the WHOIS database to permit this type of search, but I don't know when/if it'll happen, and if it does, I'm not sure that there will be any public access permitted. I'm not sure if Net Sol should even have the "name" search as it stands available

Most of the more advanced promoters tend to "cloak" their whois info as they don't want people knowing who they are or where they (especially in competitive searches). So if you are a competitor of theirs you will never know who the site actually belongs to.

True about the cloaking Whois. I do that. But 99.99% of companies don't cloak. Most companies can even figure out how to renew on time. sheesh.

Their loss is our gain :)

You also need to block ia_archiver to be bulletproof.

This will block a few of the pestier ones and keep Alexa from "including" you in their profile about you without your permission.
