Those who are working online from last few years, I’m sure you must be having more than 2 domains. In the last seven years, I have purchased almost 50+ domains, and hardly 15 of them are live.
One big problem which I used to face earlier with so many domains is domain management. I had domains on Namecheap, Godaddy, and on many other domain registrars. I used to wait for cheap offer like ($1 domain or free domain), from any registrar and used to buy domains. This was a good idea to save some money but turns out to be a bad idea later, as I keep forgetting about new domains that I bought from a different domain registrar.
I’m sure I’m not the only one facing this problem, and many of you wanted to have such a domain management tool, where you can view all your domains, their status, expiry date, and get email or SMS notification before you reach expiry date. Here I will be talking about Dominder (Domain + reminder), which is a useful online tool to manage all your domains, from one place.
How to use Dominder to manage your domains:
Dominder is easy to use online tool, which offers the various feature. This service will let you monitor unlimited domains from one place, and you can find various details about your domain from here. Here are few of the features of Dominder:
- Easy domain management: You can quickly check all your domain status from one place.
- Domain who.is record: Check what’s the who.is record of all your domains from one place. If any who.is record is wrong, this is a good place to find out.
- Domain expiration reminder: You can set custom Email or SMS reminder for receiving notifications before the domain expires. This will help you to save yourself “Oh crap!” moment.
- Domain hosting monitoring: If your domain is live, and hosted on a server. It will work as website uptime monitoring. You can set it to notify you for site downtime.
- Add notes to your domain: If you wish to add custom notes for any domain, this feature will let you do it.
- Check your domain security (Blacklisted or security loophole): Check if your domain is blacklisted or if it doesn’t pass Google safe browsing. Very useful, if you are one of those who have hundred plus domains.
- Domain finances: You can also add how much money you making from a domain in a month. This will be helpful for niche marketer to decide, which website to pay more attention, and which one needs least.

If you are one of those internet marketer; who is running hundreds of Websites, you will find Dominder very useful. At the time of writing, this service is completely free, and you get five free SMS notifications. If you need more SMS notification, you can buy additional SMS by paying the little price.
Update: After initial free launch they have changed their pricing & free plan let you monitor one domain. For extra domains, you need to grab their higher plan that I find to be little expensive. If you are a domainer, in that case, you might not mind such tool. Here is the current pricing of Dominder:
Overall, as a domain management tool, Dominder is one of the best I have seen.
