Snapnames Makes Searching For Domain Names Easier

by Chad Kettner in Categories: News

Snapnames has announced a number of improvements to its website, improving the overall search experience so domainers can have an easier time finding valuable soon-to-be-available domain names.

The full list of improvements are published after the jump…

New Search Criteria

  • Limit your search by numbers of dictionary words a domain name contains
  • Exclude IDNs

Improved Saved Search Functionality

  • Save up to 100 searches (increased from 50)
  • Saved search names can now contain up to 20 characters (increased from 16)
  • Non-alphanumeric characters (i.e., dashes, underscores, and number signs) now permitted in saved search names
  • Better saved search email alerts – more domains listed, longer domain names displayed before truncation

More Flexibility

  • Checkboxes to include or exclude Deleting, Expiring, and Private Seller names
  • Search one or more listing type (In Auction, Available Soon, or Buy It Now)
  • More TLDs, including a wide range of ccTLDs
  • Select from multiple special events
  • More options under “Order By” date

Easier to Use

  • Popular settings are now default (i.e., “contains keyword”, display of 100 results per page)
  • Maximum search results per page increased from 100 to 500
  • Default sort order for search results is now number of bidders
  • More intuitive sorting on first click (from most bidders to least, from highest minimum bid to lowest, and from ending soonest to ending latest)
  • Contextual pop-up help topics

Other Changes

  • Restored ability to select all domains on a page to add to cart
  • Download search results to a CSV file
  • Top navigation now uses dropdown menus, allowing you to click directly to the page you want
  • The ‘whois’ link next to domain names appearing in search results has been moved to the domain details page – click on a domain name to see the name’s current status, link to whois information, and quickly purchase or place a bid

Snapnames will be launching all of these new features and changes within the next week.

I, like 10,000s of other people, can’t use Snap Names until they accept Paypal or internation debit cards such as Maestro (Mastercard) or Solo.
