What is the history and popularity of the app?

DomainsBot launched in 1999 as a search engine for expired or expiring domains. It expanded its functionality in 2004 with the Semantic Engine for domain searches and suggestions. In 2008, Sedo became a minority investor in DomainsBot.

What are the differences to other apps?

The site is still in beta testing, so it is a bit clumsy to use. The big drawback is that the prominently advertised tools are all fee-based. There are many apps out there that offer similar features for free.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

Interestingly, the tools listed on the front page are not the tools offered in MyDomainsBot. The Data and Visual tools are much different and, as the site is still in beta testing, some don’t work. To use the tools that were advertised, users must go to “products” and sign up for a free trial. All of the listed services have costs associated with them. The free trial signup link takes you to a contact form to request the trials.

During review, trials were requested. The response indicated that the trial services are for business customers as they are provided by API. The trial request was denied.

How does the registration process work?

An email address and password are required. A confirmation link is provided via email.

What does it cost to use the application?

DomainsBot is completely free to use.

Who would you recommend the application to?

At the moment, this site is not recommended. Several of the tools do not work and it is questionable whether the free trials are available upon request. All of the premium services are fee based. The bait and switch of the prominently displayed tools is inappropriate.

  • Free to use the basic service
  • All “Products” are fee based
  • Not all tools function as advertised
  • Domain search engine
