Network Solutions has released a unique iPhone application that enables the search and purchase of domain names. Named DomainStorm, the application is Network Solution's first.
The application's BrainStorm feature provides creative suggestions for domain names by either shaking the iPhone or tapping the "Spin" button - pretty cool. The app then combines synonyms to create new domain names and displays the availability of the various combination of names.
Additional features of the application include WHOIS lookup, search history, geographically based search criteria, favorites lists, and related domain name suggestions (extension and spelling variations, expired domains with past renewal dates, and premium domains for sale from current domain holders).
“DomainStorm is the first of many mobile applications we plan to launch in the coming months that are geared to the needs of our small business customers,” said Navin Ganeshan, senior director of Product Strategy. “We believe mobile apps bring unprecedented capability and flexibility to our small business customers, and our ultimate goal is nothing short of enabling them to fully run their business from their mobile device -- including interacting with customers, managing transactions, checking their inventory levels, or monitoring their website analytics.”
