For my marketing efforts, I am trying to find a resource on the internet that would allow me to find websites that contain a specific keyword in the domain name.

For example, if I wanted to find active websites that have a domain name with the word "computers" in it, where would I go? It would be GREAT if the search results provided a list of domain names that contain the word "computers" in it.

Anyone know where I could find this? I personally have never come across this before.

Hi Bradley,

It seems that there is a tool like this but I can't find it in my bookmarks.

Let me see what I can find or if not I will find someone to help you.

Hi Bradley,

I believe the site you are looking for is Netcraft [netcraft.com]. They have a pretty impressive search engine of active domains allowing you to search main doamin, sub domain, starts with, ends with etc. For the techies you can then query what system/server etc that domain is using.

Bear in mind though that the results also include parked domains which may skew your figures a bit.

Hope this helps,

Onya

[domainsurfer.com...] is also a great tool for this.

This site allows you to enter a string and returns all registered domains that include the string. You can also require that your specified string begins the domain name, or allow it to appear in any position.

Tedster-Thanks for the link. That's a great tool for researching keyphrase domains.

I think the Netcraft link is better because, if I'm not mistaken, it links to active sites...The domainsurfer link lists ALL domains - but a majority of them are inactive sites.

I think Netcraft lists sites that are up and running (but I may be mistaken)
