For quite a while now I wanted a tool to maintain a list of my domains and monitor them for expirations and registration state changes. Having a spreadsheet didn’t cut it anymore but thanks to Joel’s question on stackoverflow, I found DomainTools monitor.
The monitor is free, can track up to 1000 domains and send email (and RSS) alerts when it detects any status changes. Here are the advertised features:
- Domain Status like "registrar-lock", "redemption-period", and "pending-delete" changes will be sent to you so you can take action when your favorite domains are about to be released.
- Domain Registar changes are a sign of domain transfers which are detected by Domain Monitor.
- Expiration dates are monitored so
