Abstract

Domain Search is a solution that allows you to retrieving information about an existing domain or a new domain by clicking on the "Domain Search" icon within browser toolbar see: Fig 1 . The Domain Search eliminates the need to retrieve information about a domain by manually going to a web site such as www.register.com to search for this domain. This process can be time consuming and especially if the search requires searches within different web sites. Domain Search offers a better solution to this problem by giving the user the domain information as easy as clicking on an icon then the registration information would be displayed to the user. The Domain Search would produce the domain registration information such as shown below. 1. Person/company name (or is currently available if you are looking for a new domain). 2. Address of the person/company 3. E-mail
