dropped.ie funky search
We’ve all wasted hours of our time trying to grab Internet domains that are already registered. That’s why we launched Dropped.ie – to display on one page all the domains around a single word that are available to register or buy right now.

But not content with that, we’ve added a semantic element to the service – so if you type in a certain word, we will also seek out available domains that are related to it.

The example we have been using to show it off is “espresso” – which will also display results with the word “coffee” in. It’s mostly dot-ie domains at the moment, but we also have dot-coms and are looking to expand it across all the top-level domains that Blacknight sells.

We also pull in third-party domains for sale, and let you choose regional terms to help you get to a suitable domain as quickly as possible.

One click next to each domain will display the domain’s history and its popularity.

And a single click will pull you through to a registration page for that domain – making it easier than ever to get your domain and get it fast.

But that’s not all  – we are constantly looking at ways to improve.

So we’ve had a brainstorm and current thoughts include:

  • Letting people choose their country, and automatically pulling in regional search information such as counties or states
  • Picking the best available domains – of any extension – and sticking them up the top in a Best Picks box

  • Improving the search so it second-guesses where you are going and gets there before you

  • Doing a mash-up with Google Maps data or Maxmind’s GeoIP tools

Here’s where we want to hear from you.

  • What do you think of the service?

  • What do you think of the ideas above?

  • Do you have any ideas of your own that you think would make Dropped.ie better?

If so, now’s the time to speak up.

Just add a comment below or email us at marketing@blacknight.com and we’ll check it out and, where possible, incorporate it.

So please check out Dropped.ie and get back to us with ways to improve it.
