Version History For Domain Name Analyzer Professional

The first version of Domain Name Analyzer Professional was released 20 years ago.

Version 6 - January-14-2020 (Current)

  • Minor interface changes and fixes
  • Updated the code-signing certificate

Version 6 - June-02-2019

  • Minor interface improvements and bug fixes.

Version 6 - July-31-2017

This is an important update, please see below.

  • The registrar whois server token in COM and NET registry whois has changed. This requires a manual configuration change in all our domain name management software products (please see here). This update removes the need for manual configuration change.
  • Minor interface improvements and bug fixes.

    Version 6 - April-10-2017

  • Added options to control how domain names are created from keywords. You can now optionally suppress the creation of single or double keyword domain names.
  • Added an option to use unique consonants when creating domain names from character templates. Use this to create pronounceable domain names by alternating vowels with consonants (use a pattern like !^!^!)

    Version 6 - March-21-2017

  • Fixed an issue with ORG domain expiry dates. This problem occurred because the .ORG registry blanked the 'Registrar Registration Expiration Date:' row which in turn caused the software to ignore the data obtained from the actual expiry date row. This can be fixed manually by entering 'Registry Expiry Date:' as the expiry date token for .ORG domains. This update makes it work without this manual fix.
  • Minor interface improvements and bug fixes.

    Version 6 - July-29-2016

  • You could add only about 800-1000 entries to auto-append list of TLDs (for generating domain names from words). This limit has been removed.
