Before registering a domain name, you should ensure that the domain name is available for registration. To do so you need to query our DAS (Domain Availability System)
Using the API
The function domainCheck allows to check the status of one or a list of desired domain name.
You can provide several domain names separated with semicolons, for example "netim1.com;netim2.com;netim3.com" and you will receive the results for each domains.
You can't mix different extensions. All the extensions don't accept a multiple checkDomain (see Category:Tld). In this case, you must check only one domain
You can reach the URL below in order to query the availability of a particular domain name
Replace "XXXX" by your reseller ID Replace "YYYY" by your DAS password Replace "DOMAIN" by the domain to be queried.
For security reasons, the password is NOT your reseller account password. Please contact our support to get the DAS password
Whatever is the method used, a reseller is by default limited to 5000 queries a day. This limit may be increased by contacting our support team
Whatever is the method used, as a result, the domain availability status can be
