Thinking of building a website and still looking for that special domain but you’re not near your computer? Don’t let that domain name get away from you. The DomainStorm iPhone app, created by Mobomo for Network Solutions, gives you the tools to search or brainstorm for domain names, check their availability and then register them — all from the convenience of your iPhone, from wherever you have a WiFi or 3G connection.
Search for a domain name and automatically see availability for various popular TLDs (Top Level Domains) including .com, .net, .org and more. (Search results appear after every character typed, provided you stop typing.) If a domain is free, Network Solutions’ registration price is listed beside it. Otherwise, it’ll be marked as “Taken.”
If a domain you’re searching for is already registered, use the built-in “whois” feature to get information on the registrant, in case you want to dig further on the listed registry and make the owner an offer.
Is your first choice of domain name taken? Why not get creative and use the Brainstorm feature? Enter a keyword or two, spin the wheel or shake your phone, and you’ll get a random combination of related domain names. Want more flexibility? Specify advanced options including hyphenation, geography, digits, misspellings and more. From the results list, you can also retrieve a list of expired domains, premium domains, and more.
Found the domain you want? Pop it in the shopping cart and keep looking. When you’re ready, make your domain purchases directly from your iPhone. The sliding scale lets you specify registration durations of 1, 2, 3 and 5 years. Pay by credit card by logging in to your Network Solutions account, or create an account. Not comfortable with paying from the app? Use the “call” feature to call Network Solutions on your phone and make your purchase that way.
Want to check on a previous domain search? Use the Search History feature. Need some help? Use the help screen or email, send feedback or call Network Solutions directly from your iPhone.
