Domain Samurai Review
How Domain Samurai Compares...
Choosing a domain name is the one of the first and most important steps you will take when starting a new website. We all know that there are a ton of domain registrar sites available for you to search for names, but if you are anything like me, you don’t have the time to sit for hours on end and type in domain names one-by-one hoping that something is available. I have recently found a solution! It is a nifty program called Domain Samurai from the creators of Market Samurai! Do you want to know the best part? It’s absolutely FREE!
With Domain Samurai, you have the ability to type in your chosen keyword and either do further research on it, such as finding additional high traffic and low competition keywords or you can go right into the domain module and begin your search for domain names.
To get started, you simply enter your name and e-mail address and you will be sent a free download link to use the software. You will be e-mailed a registration key code to enter once you have opened the program and after you type it in, you’re ready to go! It literally took me roughly two minutes to register and get started!
Once you enter Domain Samurai, you will see the following screen asking if you would like to “Create a New Project” or “Open a Recent Project”.
Click on “New Project” and simply enter your keyword. Enter your keyword in the required field and the remaining fields will be filled-in for you automatically. If you wish to change anything, go right ahead! For this review, I chose the popular keyword phrase “Car Insurance” to get started. The next screen will take you to another panel that asks for further details such as additional seed keywords, what type of site you are building, what kind of domain extensions in you are interested in, and if there are any filters you would like to add. I left the default settings for the purpose of this review to show you what your search will look like. After clicking on “Find Domains”, I was given a list of 41 domain names available relating to car insurance!
How easy was that?! Now, keep in mind that I chose the default settings, which was for a blog-type website. I played around with other options and ended-up finding tons of other possible domain names available with my keyword in them!
What’s really cool about Domain Samurai is that once you go through the list of possible names that are available, if you find one that you like, all you have to do is click the “Buy” button and it will take you to your preferred domain registrar! Talk about convenience!
I am really enjoying Domain Samurai and can’t find a whole lot to complain about. The only problem I have ever encountered while using it that it will sometimes get stuck a little bit if you are trying to do too much at once, but this has seldom happened and when it did, the program recovered quickly.
For this being a completely free software to use, I cannot see why anyone would ever want to search for a domain name the “old fashioned” way! Once you give this a try, you will understand what I mean. It is such a quick and simple method of doing domain name research — do yourself a favor and try this out! You will not believe the time is saves to name your new site and get it up and running!
