Domain Names

P1010021I was down with Nik (the CEO of Omnidrive) in Wollongong on the weekend and he showed me a deadly little tool called “Instant Domain Search” — shows whether a domain is available as you type. Make those endless quests for new product names just a little less painful. And if you find a domain you really like, but it’s not available, you can bid on it using tools directly off the site (such as Sedo or GoDaddy marketplace). Nice one Nik.

And in other news Cameron Reilly is in the office today, glasses and all… except we err, lost him. Has anybody seen Cam?

    I use which is pretty much the same – neat interface, quick, ajaxy and all that. Perfect for domain name lookups.

    As for Cam, maybe you need a cam to see Cam came.

    Finally found him at the pub.

    Nice. Beats typing through the NetRegistry interface hands down.

    Cheers for the heads up on this one.
