You Are Here: ZipZing » Resources
Here are some resources to use with your ZipZing domain name filtering software:
Use a .txt (notepad) file for your domain lists. Be sure your domains are one per line with no other data attached. Example:
ZipZing works with “raw” domain name lists. Raw is good when it comes to domain lists because many services limit the amount of domains displayed, are not reliable and much more. I always have filtered domain names with my own tools and got my domain lists from the best source (often directly from the source). The following are links to sources of “raw” domain name lists.
PendingDelete domain name lists:
NameJet.com/downloads Contains .com | .net | .org domain names. Pre-Release domain names are also available for downloads on this page. (I wouldn’t suggest filtering the “whole” list of pre-release domains as it’s a very large file/list). NameJet includes more data with downloads than just domain names (date, price, domain) so you will need to remove the date and price column first, before using the downloaded list from NameJet. I download the list, open it in Excel and remove the extra columns.
SnapNames.com offers a wide range of domain lists and one of those is the PD list, which they name as “Deleting Domains”. The same link provides all of the domain names listed on SnapNames, so you can download those also.
Pool.com PendingDelete domain list. (Contains .ca domains)
GoDaddy Auctions Domain Lists
I wrote a how to article on my blog DotWeekly.com on how to obtain, filter and use the GoDaddy domain name lists. You can view that article, which also contains a video of me filtering the list in Excel with several tips and shortcuts.
Using the free domain name service DailyChanges.com (owned by DomainTools.com) you can search for recent activity by Domain Name Server (DNS). Let’s say you wish to see recently expired domain names for “Network Solutions”. Simply visit DailyChanges.com, scroll down and type pendingrenewaldeletion.com to see the recent activity on that DNS. That is the DNS used by NSI when a domain expires. Since DailyChanges.com is DNS based, you will want to focus on “Transferred In” because these domains have moved to that specific DNS. The majority of these domain names will be listed on NameJet.com “Pre-Release”.
Download the list, save it and filter it with ZipZing to see the goodies!
Some more DNS that may interest you. The following are used for expired domains:
- DirectNic: EXPIREDDOMAINSERVICES.COM
- Tucows: RENEWYOURNAME.NET
- Network Solutions: PENDINGRENEWALDELETION.COM
- Backorders: INTERIMNAMESERVER.COM
TasteReports.com is another way to get creative to see what people are registering daily. You can search by registrar and keyword, date etc.
There are domain name lists all over the web, so I clearly can’t provide them all here for you but I’m sure you are aware of some more that you can use ZipZing with to filter and do your domain research.
The above are several great tips to help you discover domain names using raw domain lists and a great software like ZipZing to filter down the lists to a more manageable list, likely in a very new way for you! Have fun!
Pre-filtering can always help the speed of ZipZing. ZipZing can handle very large lists of domain names (100K+) but will work faster with smaller lists. If you have a very large dictionary and a very large domain list, clearly you will have to give the software a little bit extra time to filter things. I often use Excel® to cut down domain name list sizes.
