How does the web app look and feel to use?

The site is very simplistic. It consists of a search box in which users enter the domain name they want to check. An Advanced Option for checking .net, .org, .biz, and .mobi is available. Upon entering the desired name, a list of which are taken and which are available is generated.

If the name is taken, users may choose one of the links to see alternative suggestions from GoDaddy, analytics from Compete, WHOIS database search for the owner of the site you were seeking, and a link to the site itself.

If the name is available, links to GoDaddy, GoDaddy plus hosting, 1&1 domains, Yahoo web hosting, and Network Solutions are offered.

How does the registration process work?

No registration is necessary to use the application.

No fees are associated with use of Instant Domain Search. The site provides a coupon for .com names from Go Daddy links.
