About Bust a Name/DomainFriend

The Service

Bust a Name/DomainFriend is a tool to help you find domains and manage them.  We have combined linguistic data with a unique interface to let you quickly search through thousands of domains and see which are available.


The project came about due to a clear need for a better way to find domains.  Having launched many other web services, the hardest part was coming up with a domain name that wasn't taken but could easily be memorized.  We also realized that domain management was pretty difficult too.  Bust a Name/DomainFriend was created to try to fix both of these problems and help you manage web site related things easier.


We are firm believers in using the right tool for the job.  A good chunk of Bust a Name/DomainFriend is written in front end javascript.  The back-end is mostly rails, running with mysql and lighttpd for our web server.
