Screenshot A screenshot (also known as a thumbnail) is a reduced size version of a picture. DomainTools' Screenshot History shows you archived images of what a specific website looks like currently and what it looked like in the past, from as far back as 2001. Shared Registration System (SRS) The Shared Registration System (SRS) is the software provided by a registry to facilitate the registration of domain names, updates of nameservers, contact information and overall management of a registry. The SRS is used by registrars to connect to the registry. SLD SLD refers to Second Level Domain, which are the characters immediately to the left of the main domain extension (TLD). The term is typically used when differentiating between a TLD and SLD. For example, in domaintools.com, domaintools is the SLD and .com is the TLD. SPF Record Sender Policy Framework records are used to identify Internet hosts that are allowed to send mail for a particular domain. An SPF Record is put in the same level as an MX Record. When an SPF Record is present, a properly configured mail server will not accept mail from servers not listed in that record. By configuring your mail server to respect SPF records, you can reduce the amount of unsolicited emails that use spoofed sender data. Sponsor A Sponsor is an organization to which is delegated some defined ongoing policy-formulation authority regarding the manner in which a particular sponsored TLD is operated. The sponsored TLD has a Charter, which defines the purpose for which the sponsored TLD has been created and will be operated. The Sponsor is responsible for developing policies on the delegated topics so that the TLD is operated for the benefit of a defined group of stakeholders, known as the Sponsored TLD Community, that are most directly interested in the operation of the TLD. The Sponsor also is responsible for selecting the registry operator and to varying degrees for establishing the roles played by registrars and their relationship with the registry operator. The Sponsor must exercise its delegated authority according to fairness standards and in a manner that is representative of the Sponsored TLD Community. Subdomain A subdomain is a domain that is a component of a larger domain. For example, mail.domaintools.com and calendar.domaintools.com are subdomains of the domaintools.com domain, which in turn is a subdomain of the .com top level domain (TLD). Thick Registry With a thick domain registry model, all information associated with registered entities, including both technical information (such as information needed to produce zone files) and social information (such as information needed to implement operational, business, or legal practices), is stored within the registrar repository. Thin Registry With a thin registry model, only the operational data about each domain (such as information to produce zone files) is stored in the central registry database, while contact and billing information is maintained by the registrar sponsoring the domain name. Thus, in this model, the registry only knows the mapping from a domain name to a registrar as well as the associated nameservers. Whois services operated by the registry publish that mapping, while the registrant's identity is then published by the registrar. Note: If you need Whois information, visit DomainTools' Whois page. Top Level Domain (TLD) Top Level Domains (TLDs) are the names at the top of the DNS naming hierarchy. They appear in domain names as the string of letters following the last (rightmost) ".", such as "net" in "www.example.net". The administrator for a TLD controls what second-level names are recognized in that TLD. The administrators of the "root domain" or "root zone" control what TLDs are recognized by the DNS. Generally speaking, two types of TLDs exist: generic TLDs (such as .com, .net, .edu) and country code TLDs (such as .jp, .de, and .cn). UDRP The UDRP stands for Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy. It is a policy adopted by ICANN in 1999 to resolve domain name disputes in the case of abusive registrations or trademark infringement. Anyone who registers a domain name with a global TLD must agree to this policy, and it makes things easier and less expensive for trademark owners to resolve a dispute. Once a UDRP complaint is filed, a panel of 1 to 3 panelists will review the case. If the complainant (i.e. the person or organization filing the infringement or abuse complaint) wins the UDRP case, the domain name may be transferred to them. No action is taken if the respondent (i.e. the original owner) wins the UDRP case. To review the policy and see a list of past UDRP proceedings, visit: http://www.icann.org/en/udrp/udrp.htm. URL URL stands for Uniform Resource Locator that distinguishes where an identified resource is available along with the mechanism for retrieving it. An example of the use of a URL is for web page addresses on the World Wide Web, such as http://www.example.com. Whois Whois is a widely used Internet directory that tells you who owns a domain and how to get in contact with the them. Due to the policies implemented and enforced by (the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), the agency whose job it is to regulate domain name registration, the Whois record serves a comprehensive snapshot of domain name registration and ownership, including registrant, administrative, billing and technical contact information provided by registrars for domain name registrations.
Then the number is an HRL so it’ll be quite a bit different then you’ll see an expired domains because domain pop service is not very good compared to HREFs. Usually this shows about 20 percent of the total lengths. This shows more like 80. Okay? As you can see it has actually 162 referring domains which is quite a lot better than we saw in expired domains.

An Internationalized Domain Name (IDN) is an Internet domain name or web address that is represented by local language characters. For example, here is the IDN for Starbucks Korea: http://xn--oy2b35ckwhba574atvuzkc.com/. IDNs enable domain names in non-ASCII characters, helping to improve the functionality and accessibility of the Internet. IDNs empower companies to maintain a single brand identity in many scripts and more Web users can navigate the Internet in their preferred script.
From a most basic perspective, any website or platform on the internet that allows people to post a link which goes to an outside site is a potential source of traffic. However, traffic sources are not created equal. Some traffic sources are very problematic. For example, if you were to go to social media sites and just share content and links, chances are, somebody at some time will object to that practice. They would say you’re spamming. It's very easy to get your affiliate account shut down because people complain. Similarly, you could be blogging for what seems like forever and fail to get much love from search engines.

Whois PrivacyICANN currently requires that the phone number, e-mail address and mailing address of those managing or owning a domain name are to be made public through Whois directories. WIPO WIPO stands for World Intellectual Property Organization. Established in 1967, its purpose is to develop an accessible and balanced international Intellectual Property system while safeguarding public interest through cooperation among states and in collaboration with other international organizations. WIPO is referenced with respect to trademark domain name disputes and it is often confused with UDRP. Zone File A file on a nameserver that designates a domain name with all of its associated subdomains, IP addresses, and mail server. A zone file is also called a "DNS table." For example, Verisign maintains a constantly-updated Zone File for all of the .com domains that exist and are currently registered in the .com TLD. Top of page ^

I like to also click on the No Fake PR’s and No Unsure PR’s because a lot of fake page rank or page rank that’s been manipulated in the past and you want to make sure any authority that you see is real. Once you’ve picked all the criteria you want to choose, click on the apply filter button. This took our list from two million to 237. Now, even within that, that’s kind of overwhelming.
Domain name market is heavily oversatured these days. There are more than 80 milion domains registered in total. Finding a right domain name is sometimes nearly impossible task, especially if you are not willing to pay extra cash to buy a domain that is already grabed and now for sale. If you have already tried to type in domain names for availability you probably had zero success, especially if you have searched for more generic words and keyphrases. The author of this program remembers he searched virtually for weeks to find some more or less usable names that he could use, and that was years ago. Since then, finding a good domain have gotten harder. Much harder.
Thank you so much for giving everyone such a nice chance to read from this web site. It is always very sweet and also jam-packed with amusement for me and my office co-workers to search your site minimum thrice every week to learn the newest guides you will have. And of course, I’m just certainly astounded with your effective advice you give. Certain 1 areas in this article are in fact the most impressive I have had.
2) prerelease auctions.  These are domains where the auction venue has contracted with the registrar, like Fabulous or Moniker, to auction off non-renewed domains.  Just before a domain enters the pending delete process, it goes to a private auction to any person who has backordered the name.  Some people feel that back links on these type of auctions still provide a SEO benifit. My testing indicates that there is zero SEO benifit when these domains are redirected into another site.  So if you get a domain with "pink squirels" in a lot of achor text to a domain and then point it at your domain, you don't rank for "pink squirels"
Searching for a suitable domain name for your website can be quite trying. The reason for this is that the names that you want to get have already been assigned and are not available. As an SEO you know the importance of getting a domain name that describes your business as closely as possible. For example, if you are running a car rental service, you will look for a domain name that has the words ‘car’ and ‘rental’ in it. So if you can’t find a suitable name, you could use the expired domains tool which might show you domain names that would meet your requirements.
