I would like to search for all the .com registered domains that have my domain in them. Example lets say my domain is MyDomain.com. People are registering MyDomainOnline.com.

Does anyone know of a service or tool that will allow me to find all these similar domains? I am only interested in the ones that are already registered.

I tried DNwiz but they didn't even find all the ones I know about.

I also tried NameBoy but it does not accurately tell you if a domain is registered.

It would be great if I could find a site that searched the .com registry databases with wildcard characters. Example *MyDomain*.

Thanks in advance for any suggestion you can think of.

There are MANY such tools around, of varying quality. But because such tools are used to promote paid services in many cases, our Forum Charter [webmasterworld.com] here asks this:

Tool Talk
There are many tools and services for working with domain names,
seeing if they've already been indexed, researching their past, their
historical Page Rank and backlinks, etc.

Please do not ask about, criticize, or recommend any specific
tools in your post. We don't want to give unfair promotion to anyone
- or get into a fighting match with those who code tools, many of
whom are your fellow members here.
