To check whether a list of web domains are taken or not


Following up a previous post ({% post_link trying-new-things %}), I can finally announce my success in automating the processing of using no api sites!

Using CasperJS, I am able to handle the redirections initiated by the start url and fill a form and submit it to get the results.

Initially, one has to navigate to the domain shop and input the string to check whether it is taken, one by one.

You only need to provide a list of domains and the automation script will obtain the end result as a boolean (taken/not taken).

The next step is to furnish this into a workable tool!
