File Description [top]

Domain Names is produced by Dialog and SnapNames, and provides comprehensive information on domain names. A domain name is an alpha-numeric designation used to identify a particular computer or address on the Internet.

The database is a centralized resource containing both current registration (WhoIs) records and historic ownership (WhoWas) records for Internet domain names. Individual records may be searched by registrant name, domain name, e-mail address, phone number, zip code and numerous other fields. Domain Names is designed to assist enterprises, law enforcement, attorneys and others in various critical applications.

These applications may include:

  • Monitoring trademark portfolios and investigating the uniqueness or availability of names
  • Searching by an individual's name to create authoritative evidence of bad faith, cyber squatting or other offenses
  • Conducting domain name audits to inventory all domain name assets owned by an organization or to track competitor activity
  • Performing law enforcement investigations in areas such as cyber crime

    1 Due the large size of the Domain Names database, it is suggested that truncation be used with caution. Using OR with commonly used terms may provide more complete results, e.g., S COMPUTER OR COMPUTERS.

    2 Searchable in both Basic Index and Additional Index.

    3 Names may be entered in different ways. It is suggested that the (N) proximity operator be used for best results, e.g., S MASTER(1N)CARPENTER/ON or ON=(MASTER(1N)CARPENTER).

    4 Trademarks can be searched in the basic index using the /TX suffix, e.g., S HOUSE(1w)LLOYD/TX. Trademarks can also be phrase-searched in the ET= index.

    5 For comprehensive retrieval, it is recommended that both AC= and AD= be used, e.g., S AC=MAIN? OR AD=MAIN?

    6 Country names may be entered in abbreviated form or spelled out in full. It is recommended that both forms be used for comprehensive retrieval, e.g, S CN=(UK OR UNITED KINGDOM)

    7 Email addresses which contain an underbar,e.g., mike_mcgrady@att.net, must be split to search correctly. To do this, SELECT the first portion with the search AND the second portion of the email address using the appropriate Dialog search Additional Index field, e.g., S EM=(MIKE AND MCCRADY@WORLDNET.ATT.NET).

    8 Telephone numbers may be entered in with spaces, periods or hyphens between numbers. All forms should be included for comprehensive results, e.g., S TA=(408 222? or 408.222? or 408-222?)

    9 Use the rotated TR= index to search domain name fragments or endings (excluding extensions). TR= index entries are strings of characters from which punctuation has been removed. To search for a domain fragment such as "the-dog", use TR=thedog? For the most comprehensive retrieval, use the question mark (?) to search word fragments occurring within the domain name. Use the @ character to indicate that the string is the ending of a domain name, e.g., TR=DOG@ to find domain names ending in "dog". Searches based on TR= should not be used with proximity operators.

    10 When using the REPORT command, specifying AC, AD, or FX will only retrieve the address or fax number of the registrant. Enter HELP RPT225X to see more report codes.
