DOMAIN STUDIO

Important Tasks combined in one Tool

The DOMAIN STUDIO of the AutoDNS Domain platform combines central tasks of the X3 version in one tool. The DOMAIN STUDIO thus enables a simplified and fast domain search, domain registration and fast and easy domain transfer. Domains can be registered and transferred in bulk, which is not yet possible in this combination in the x3 version. In addition, DOMAIN STUDIO includes the Premium Market as well as a Pricer, which estimates and indicates the value of a domain if it is higher than the indicated purchase value.

Besides the described combined order types, DOMAIN STUDIO offers a broad, filterable result range: Recommendations based on the searched domain are given, and location results are displayed that match the language / TLD of the entered domain. In addition, you will receive suggestions for similar domains, which may differ from the domain you originally searched for, for example, due to subdomains.

Benefits:

  • easy and quick to use
  • all basics combined in one tool
  • in addition to the exact hit you will receive a large selection of alternative domains (also from the Market Place and Premium Domains);

Premium Market

The Premium Market, which displays available premium domains as well as additional market domains, can be found in the AutoDNS X3 interface in the menu "Premium Market" in the menu group "Domains & Contacts".

In the new AutoDNS platform the Premium Market is integrated into the DOMAIN STUDIO.


Pricer

New in the DOMAIN STUDIO is the Pricer, which estimates and indicates the value of a domain if it is higher than the indicated purchase value. You can identify it by the green field.

Filter options

Numerous filter options help you find the right domains quickly.
