Welcome to @checkthisdomain!

Checkthisdomain is a twitter bot that tells you whether a specific domain is available or taken. It was mostly written as an excuse for @connor to make a twitter bot, and hack more on the Domai.nr API (if the chrome extensnion and NPM Package weren't enough).

Anyways, it's super simple - send a tweet like this (note that it detects the first string that follows @checkthisdomain with a space):

@checkthisdomain connormontgomery.com

Go ahead, give it a try!

and it will respond to you whether or not it's taken. Why would you want to use this instead of Domai.nr, the chrome extension, or manually going to a site? I don't know, but it sounded fun to build.

This app utilizes the following:

A few notes...

  • The Twitter API doesn't allow apps to send duplicated tweets. So, if you happen to tweet at @checkthisdomain a specific domain, and try again some time later, the second request won't send a tweet back to you (unless the status of the domain has changed). That's due to Twitter trying to minimize spam bots.

  • If you request a specific domain and it forwards to another domain (i.e. connormontgomery.com -> cnnr.me), it will process the final domain.

  • This supports up to 10 redirects (re: the note above)

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
