Check if a Domain is Parked or Active

Checking a domain's activity is crucial when you're trying to buy a domain name that is already owned. You don't want to waste your time and money on a domain that's already been taken. Parked domains are also a good indicator of the health of a website. If a domain is parked, it means that the owner isn't using it for anything. This could be because they're not developing the site, they've lost interest in the site, or they're not using it for any other reason.

So, if a domain is parked, there is a good chance that you could get it for a lower price. However, if the domain is active, it means that the owner is still using it and is probably not interested in selling it.

Check a Domain's SSL Status

When you're looking at a domain, it's important to check its SSL status. This will tell you if the site is secure and if it's using a valid SSL certificate. A valid SSL certificate is important because it means that the site is encrypted and that sensitive information (like credit card numbers) is protected.

Almost every active website today has an SSL certificate, so if a domain doesn't have one, it's likely not active. However, just because a domain has an SSL certificate doesn't mean that it's necessarily active. Some sites are still using valid SSL certificates even though they're no longer active.

Check a Domain's Registrar

If someone registers a domain that you believe is infringing your trademark, the first thing to do is to register a complaint with where they bought the domain – also known as the registrar. GoDaddy and Namecheap are two of the most popular registrars.

This represents the first course of action if you believe a domain is registered that is trying to defraud your customers or infringe your trademark.

Check a Domain's DNS

The DNS (Domain Name System) is what converts a domain name into an IP address. This is what allows you to visit a website by typing in the domain name instead of the IP address.

Every domain has a DNS and every active domain should have at least one DNS server. If a domain doesn't have any DNS servers, it's likely not active. So, gather your domain's DNS information to get started.

Check a Domain's Final URL

The final URL is the page that a user sees after they experience a page redirect. Navigating to this page often reveals who the buyer of a given domain is. When buying a domain, the buyer will often redirect that to an existing site, either as a temporary solution or even as a permanent one. If you can see the final URL – which this tool lets you do – then you can often identify the person or organization who bought that domain. This will help you decide if the purchaser of that domain has a valid reason for buying this domain (for example, a similarly branded company in another industry) – or whether they may be trying to defraud your customers.

Monitoring Tools FAQs

O que é um Nome de Domínio?

seta descendente

A domain name is the unique address of a website. It is made up of a combination of letters and numbers, and it can be used to find a specific website on the internet. Domain names are registered with a registrar, which is an organization that manages the availability of domain names.

When you register a domain name, you are given the exclusive rights to use that domain name for a specific period. After the registration period expires, you must renew your registration to continue using the domain name. Domain names can be used for personal or business websites, and they are an important part of the branding and marketing of a website.

What is an SSL Certificate?

seta descendente

SSL certificates are small data files that digitally bind a cryptographic key to an organization's details. When installed on a web server, it activates the padlock and the HTTPS protocol and allows secure connections from a web server to a browser. Typically, SSL is used to secure credit card transactions, data transfers, and logins, and more recently is becoming the norm when securing the browsing of social media sites. Certificate authorities issue certificates that contain a public key and the identity of the website owner and are signed with a private key known only to the issuing authority.

When a web browser attempts to access an SSL-secured website, it retrieves the site's SSL certificate and checks that it has not expired, that it has been issued by a trusted certificate authority, and that it is being used by the website for which it was issued. If all of these checks pass, the browser then proceeds to create a symmetric session key, which it encrypts with the public key from the website's SSL certificate. The browser then sends this encrypted message along with some other information to establish an SSL connection.

The server responds by sending back its copy of the session key, also encrypted with the public key from the website's SSL certificate. Once both sides have decrypted the session key, they can proceed to use symmetric-key cryptography for the remainder of their communication.

What is a Parked Domain?

seta descendente

A parked domain is a domain name that is registered but not associated with an active website. Parked domains are often used by businesses as a placeholder for a future website, or as a way to redirect traffic from an inactive website to an active one. In some cases, parked domains may also be used to sell advertising space.

The term "parked domain" can also refer to a domain that is squatted on or a domain that is being used for cybersquatting.

What is a WHOIS Lookup?

WHOIS is a publicly available database that stores the contact information for registered domain names. This information includes the name, address, and phone number of the registrant, as well as the name of the registrar. WHOIS lookups can be used to find this information for a given domain name. In many cases, the registrant information is publicly available.

However, some registrars offer privacy protection services that make the contact information unavailable. WHOIS lookups are often used to track down the owner of a particular website or to identify potential cyber-squatters. They can also be used to help investigate online crime or fraud.
