What is the history and popularity of the app?

DomainTyper was created by the same minds that brought ToDo.ly to the internet. The creators wanted to build a helpful, simple tool that would assist business and website owners in creating a clever, memorable domain name. DomainTyper would help the user come up with potential ideas and verify their availability before doing any branding around the name. Today, DomainTyper assists many individuals and businesses in locating a fitting domain name.

What are the differences to other apps?

There are many websites that can help users determine whether their desired domain name is currently available. DomainTyper does this, but it can also do more. The user can check out randomly generated domain names and find out which are available to help them come up with their own. Naming a product, business or other website is very important. The domain is often how users will identify the website. DomainTyper helps users find inspiration and verify availability in only a few steps.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

The DomainTyper website is very simple, but this is a good thing. The white background is offset by light greens and blues that highlight tips that help newcomers understand DomainTyper’s functionality. Using a red and green color code system, users can quickly generate potential domain names and identify which are available and which are not.

How does the registration process work?

The service offered by DomainTyper is not one that should require a registration. Anyone can stop by the website and search for the availability of a domain name. There is no registration option offered and anyone can use DomainTyper as often as they like. iPhone and iGoogle compatibility has also been added, giving more options to users. Although a login feature might be nice if the user wishes to compile a list of potential domain names, this seems like overkill for the website’s intended purpose.

What does it cost to use the application?

DomainTyper does not require a registration or any kind of information from the user. There is no way to bill users for searching domain name availability. This is a good choice because the service offered does not really justify a subscription fee or other charges. There is no word on whether additional functionality will be added to change this later. Considering the company is also working on the newer Todo.ly, it is doubtful a dramatic change will be made to DomainTyper. For now, the application is priced right where it should be.

Who would you recommend the application to?

DomainTyper is a valuable tool for anyone who needs to come up with a fitting domain name. The site checks availability and helps users come up with clever, new domain names through the randomly generated option. Anyone from an individual building a personal website to a freelance developer or company can use DomainTyper.
