10 Essential iPhone Apps For Domainers

Many domain investors are on-the-go and away from their computer for a good portion of every day. The problem is that domain name inspiration can strike at any time — watching TV, in transit, at a meal, or at the gym — and looking up availability, whois information, and alternatives is difficult without a computer. Fortunately, there are a number of domain name-related iPhone applications that you can take with you to accomplish these tasks.

These 10 essential iPhone apps will help you to determine the availability of your desired domain name, enter keywords to produce domain name suggestions, look up important information on existing domain names, and much more. These apps are available in the iTunes store, and most run on iOS 3.0 or higher and are under $2.00.

  3. TJ says:

    Domainr is the best app of the bunch. I’ve used it and can’t live without it.

    1. I agree with TJ…I like Domainr.

      I also like TLD Lookup for quick access to all the various ccTLDs that exist. It helped me grab http://knowp.ro and http://doms.to as URL shorteners.

  4. BullS says:

    I created a special Apps that locks a domain till it drops and make it invisible to others and register it for just 99cent.

  5. Domainer Tamer says:

    Nice review. I’ve got a couple of these on my iPad. I see a couple more I’d like to have already.

    I love using my iPad while watching TV — I’ve found, bought and sold a couple of domains I thought of while watching commercials.

    No idea why the companies didn’t buy them prior to airing a commercial, but at least they own then now! :)
