Finding the right domain name for your niche site is extremely important. Although you can search your favorite domain registrar for good domain names by hand, the folks at Market Samurai have released a handy little application for finding available domains called Domain Samurai. I’ve been using it since it was released and I’m finding it very useful so I’m writing up this Domain Samurai review for you guys.
If you are a Market Samurai user, then you will feel right at home in the Domain Samurai interface. The program even includes the same keyword research module that Market Samurai gives you. This allows you to first do keyword research on a seed keyword and see if there are other high traffic, low competition keywords that you might want to search for domains for as well. Any keywords you find in here can be easily sent over to the domain module to see if any related domains are available.
The Domains module lets you enter any number of seed keywords into the search box. You can then specify several different options for your search. Domain Variations lets you use one of the preset domain variations which are prefixes and suffixes that you would like Domain Samurai to use in its domain search. So using the preloaded Review site variations, Domain Samurai would use the prefixes the, my, e and the suffixes info, review, reviews and site. If you don’t like these, you can always edit or create your own domain variations as well. Domain Samurai also lets you search by Top Level Domain (TLD), and some other domain filters like domains with hyphens or domains with digits.
Once you have all your search options set to your liking, just hit the Find Domains button and Domain Samurai will go out and find all the available domain names that meet your specified criteria. Once it’s done, all the results will be displayed in a table for you to look at. You can even buy the domain directly from the Domain Samurai application which is very handy.
Domain Samurai also hooks into a service called Domain Face to help you find aged domains. This is not free, but if you’re looking to invest in some good domains, it might be something worth looking into. If Domain Samurai notices any aged domains for your search, you can look at the Aged Domains tab to see the results. Here, you can get some essential information on the domain including age, PR, indexed pages, backlinks, whois and purchase information.
Finding available domains is a tedious process these days since many of the good domains are already taken. However Domain Samurai helps a bit to automate the process and help you uncover some hidden valuable domain names. It’s fast and easy, and best of all the software is absolutely FREE. It works on Macs or Windows so you really have no excuse at all not to be using it. Download it right now and start finding some great domains with Domain Samurai.
