Hosting NewsHerndon, VA – The use of smartphones and mobile applications continue to grow at a record pace, making it easy and convenient for people to search for information and make transactions on the go. To help small business owners capitalize on this growing marketing channel, Network Solutions® is focusing its mobile platform on delivering the tools and information needed to manage business and market services through mobile applications. With DomainStorm™, its first mobile application, users can search and purchase domains in a fast and fun way on their iPhones®.

“DomainStorm is the first of many mobile applications we plan to launch in the coming months that are geared to the needs of our small business customers,” said Navin Ganeshan, senior director of Product Strategy. “We believe mobile apps bring unprecedented capability and flexibility to our small business customers, and our ultimate goal is nothing short of enabling them to fully run their business from their mobile device — including interacting with customers, managing transactions, checking their inventory levels or monitoring their website analytics.”

DomainStorm is a free iphone app available through Apple’s App Store. What makes this mobile application unique is the Brainstorm feature that provides creative suggestions for domain names. It works by typing in two names and either shaking the iphone or hitting the “Spin” button. The application then combines synonyms to create new domain names and displays the availability of the various combinations of names. It also gives users the ability to purchase the domain or conduct a “WHOIS” search to see who the current registrant is and when the domain is set to expire.

DomainStorm app features include:

  • Domain availability search for all extensions available on Network Solutions’ website
  • Brainstorming tool that works by shaking your phone for domain name ideas with special pricing for .com, .net, and .org
  • Related domain name suggestions including:
    • Alternative domains are variations on extensions and spelling
    • Expired domains with past renewal dates
    • Premium domains are registered names available for purchase from the current domain holder at an established price
  • Geographically based search criteria and domain recommendations
  • Favorites list to track desired domain names
  • WHOIS lookup
  • Search history

DomainStorm Available free at iTunes App Store:
