View Full Version : Bulk Domain Availability Checker

08-14-2008, 04:44 PM
Hey all,
I found this code for a bulk domain availability checker....


The problem is that when I upload it to my server it doesn't work because my Godaddy hosting does not allow for outgoing connections. I called them to change the settings and I'm set up on a shared hosting so they can't change them. They said the only way I can get the code to work is to switch to dedicated or virtual dedicated hosting.

I've seriously searched for a long time for a little app like this. I can even set it up to allow for 2000+ domain searches at a time. So, that brings me to my question:

Is there any way this code can be modified to work on my current shared hosting?


Does anyone know of any other bulk domain availability scripts I can use?

Thanks in advance!

There's one at namecheap.com:
If you don't want an account (or that's not enough at a time), I've uploaded it to my server (and enabled all the features).
Please be careful. I'm on a shared server, and that means LIMITED BANDWIDTH.
I'll remove it if you start sucking it up.

Thanks for the reply...
I know there are sites out there with bulk domain checks but I wanted to put one on my own site. That's why I was looking for the script. Who do you use for hosting? I have Godaddy and it won't work on my shared hosting!

Are there any other scripts that would accomplish this without the "outgoing connections"?

HostNine (http://www.hostnine.com/).

No, that's physically impossible. Unless you had a 1.5 TB database on your server that you would manually update every second...
It has to use the outgoing connections so it can ask the DNS whether the site was available.
Outgoing connections are just sending/receiving data to/from other sites.
