What can you use the app for?

Domain Pigeon makes finding a new domain name for your site easier than it normally is. There are literally thousands of different websites on the internet; all of these have their own domain name which can make it difficult to choose one. You want your domain name to be catchy, short and memorable. Trouble is that with so many other domain names already registered, actually finding one that is available and meets all those criteria is very difficult. Searching for a domain name normally means that you search for various search terms until you find one that’s available, that’s very time consuming and frustrating. Domain Pigeon makes this much easier as it lists domain names which can be ordered depending on their popularity. The more people that have clicked the domain to check it out, the different the color will be. This makes it really easy to identify short domains that are popular.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Domain Pigeon was launched in early 2009 by Matt Mazur who has also created a number of other web applications and websites. The service launched and has become very popular as a result of design changes making it much easier to use.

What are the differences to other apps?

There are other sites that help you to choose domain names, however Domain Pigeon is just a little bit different. Domain Pigeon will make it possible to see a list of available domain names without you having to think about anything first. Normally you have to think of a domain name and then search to see if it’s available. However Domain Pigeon displays everything at once and then you can choose whether or not you want to purchase the domain. The idea of being able to see popular domains makes it much easier to choose a domain that will be profitable, of course you will also need to use your head.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

The application is easy to use, but it doesn’t look as clean as some other web applications. It is however very easy to find domains, you just need to click on a domain that you like the look of and it will bring up a list of statistics showing how many people are interested in the domain.

How does the registration process work?

Registering for an account on domain pigeon is really easy, however you don’t actually need one. If you are happy with the limited number of domains on offer then there is no need to register. The only type of accounts that you can register for are the paid ones which cost almost $15 per month.

What does it cost to use the application?

There is a free service that has a limited number of domains listed, this is to encourage people to sign up to the service. Signing up costs a one off payment of $15 however this should last for the lie of your membership and is not a monthly payment. If you pay $15 then you will get access to thousands of domains instead of hundreds. Domains Pigeon makes a commission on any domain name that you choose to register, that’s why they don’t mind displaying all of the different domain names at the same time.
