Web 2.0 is described as the evolution of the Internet. It is the idea of second generation Internet services using technology which was previously unavailable. One part of Web 2.0 is known as Ajax, the technology which allows a site to run smoothly and interrupted similar to an operating system based program. "PCNames uses Ajax technology to automatically suggest domain names as the user is typing into the search box… think Google Suggest for Domains" SearchEngineJournal.

Despite the popularity of the Ajax Lookup, it is the Word Search ( which gets so many visitors coming back day after day. This tool accepts up to eight keywords as input to be searched across 100's of millions of domain names. PCNames ( has just completed an upgrade to their ranking algorithm for this search. This is the application which allows PCNames to show the very best domains first. It now does a better job of scoring domain names especially those containing industry specific terms. PCNames does a complete update of their entire database each morning and periodic re-verifications throughout the day to ensure greater accuracy. To help users view the domains which have just become available, today’s date can be selected from the date added box. These are the names that are known to the industry as deleted domains.

PCNames has just added a sixth domain tool to their site for bulk lookup ( With this new tool a user can paste in an unlimited number of domains into a search box to be checked for availability. This is valuable to those who have a large number of possible ideas for their site name. Instead of typing in one after one the entire list can be inserted into the search box. Each name is checked for availability in .com, .net, .org, .info, .biz, and us and shown instantly. This is obtained by tracking a database of all registered domains which PCNames uses for their search tools.

This free domain search engine can be found at ( For additional information or to schedule an interview, contact Chris Richmond at (
