NameCat Domain Name Grabber Widget

Have you ever had a great idea for a business or a web site, and by the time you checked, the domain name you wanted had been taken the day before? Now, with the flick of your wrist*, you can research your idea and register your domain name as soon as it pops into your head.

Even if this has never happened to you, the Domain Name Grabber is a fast, fun and easy way to research and register internet domain names.

How does the Domain Name Grabber work?

Once you download and install the Domain Name Grabber Widget, you'll be able to access it by activating Dashboard, a feature of Mac OS X, introduced in version 10.4 Tiger. Simply type the domain you want into the text field, select the extension you prefer, and click "GO!". Your default web browser will open and display the availability of the domain you want. If it's already taken, you can backorder the name, look up the current domain registrant in the WHOIS database, or choose from a list of similar available domain names.

Installing Domain Name Grabber

At this time, Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger or 10.5 Leopard is required. If you're using Safari, click the download link. When the widget download is complete, show Dashboard, click the Plus sign to display the Widget Bar and click the widget’s icon in the Widget Bar to open it.

If you're using a browser other than Safari, click the download link. When the widget download is complete, unarchive it and place it in /Library/Widgets/ in your home folder. Show Dashboard, click the Plus sign to display the Widget Bar and click the widget’s icon in the Widget Bar to open it.

Note: You can also drag the widget from the Widget Bar and place it on the Dashboard wherever you want.

Enjoy!

*You can set your Dashboard to activate by moving your mouse cursor into any corner of your screen within the System Preferences under Personal > Dashboard & Exposé.
