Safest Domain Search

Are you worried about your registrar stealing your domain name idea from you? Worry no more because you can use Safest Domain Search to check the availability of domain names safely and privately.

We don't log your searches and we will never sell your data to third parties. You can search for your next big idea without worrying about sneaky registrars snatching the domain from you before you can register it.

This website was built due to legitimate concerns that big domain registrars are recording their customers' domain searches and registering the domains themselves. As a result, some customers are forced to pay premium prices for domain names that normally can be registered for less than $10.

By using Safest Domain Search, you avoid becoming a victim of this "front running" scheme. Don't use other websites to search domain names unless you are confident that they don't share their domain lookup data with third parties.

How Does It Work?

Here's a quick overview of how Safest Domain Search determines the availability of domain names:

  1. User enters the domain name into the input field.
  2. The application checks the IP address of the domain name to see if it has already been registered.
  3. If the IP address is found, we inform the user that the domain name is no longer available.
  4. If the domain's IP address cannot be found, the application attempts to fetch the WHOIS records for it.
  5. If the domain's WHOIS records are found, we inform the user that the domain is no longer available.
  6. However, if the WHOIS records cannot be found, we inform the user that the domain is still available and can be registered.

By checking first the IP address of the domain name, we minimize the number of calls to the WHOIS server, thereby saving valuable resources and reducing costs.

However, looking up the IP address is not a foolproof way to check the availability of a domain. For instance, a domain name may already have been registered but the registrant didn't bother to use it, which means that it doesn't have an IP address. So we also need to fetch the WHOIS records to verify that the domain has already been registered.

Who is Behind This Site?

This website was created by Luis Reginaldo Medilo, a web developer and the founder of a technology blog named Tech Pilipinas. Luis is a frequent registrant of domains for himself and his clients, so he knows how important it is to keep them safe and secure. He created this website because he was worried about the possibility of registrars "stealing" his ideas.

P.S. Luis is an independent individual and is NOT connected or associated with any domain registrar, so you can use this site with confidence.
