The search engine allows users to view all domains which are available,
deleted, expired, or pre-release containing a word and optionally
search through them with up to 8 keywords. The list is sorted by a
uniquely designed ranking algorithm, which scores each name using more
than 25 factors. With this technology pcNames is able to show the very
best domains first for every tool.
One of the other main improvements
is the accuracy. With the ever changing domain market keeping an
accurate list of registered domains is no easy task. After years of
research and combined effort, www.pcNames.com is able to keep their results over 95% accurate at any time.
To help users through the searching process pcNames now offers
suggestions for each search such as related terms, spelling
suggestions, or tips. For example, when searching for ‘car’ the system
also uses ‘cars’ and then shows the following related terms: auto, van,
truck, automobile, ride. The user can then search using any or all of
the suggestions along with their current keyword. And if the user
searches for something that is not a word, example ‘laon’, the system
suggests ‘loan’ while still giving results for ‘laon’.
With the industry growing at over one million per month, shorter
character domains are becoming harder to find. After many requests,
pcNames has implemented a 4 character search in addition to the current
3 character and dictionary searches, making it easier to find short
meaningful domain names.
pcNames has linked with many of the popular registrars to make it easy
for anyone to purchase a domain found. After selecting a domain a menu
will appear allowing users to choose their registrar to purchase as
they normally do. “pcNames makes it very easy to find and register
domain names thanks to its simple navigation structure and integration
with registrars and expired domain services.” – DomainNameWire
