DomainTools Retiring Domain Monitor Tool

The DomainTools Domain Monitor tool has been an invaluable tool for me in uncovering domain name sales and transactions. I monitor tens of thousands of domain names, and when DomainTools detects a change in its Whois record, I receive an alert notifying me the following morning. The tool has been greatly impacted by GDPR and similar privacy laws, but it has continued to help discover when domain names change hands or transfer.

Unfortunately, I received word this morning that DomainTools is sunsetting its Domain Monitor tool as of September 30, 2024. According to the note in this morning’s alert email, no other monitoring services from DomainTools will be impacted by this change.

I have identified and shared many domain name sales and transactions that were uncovered with the help of the Domain Monitor tool from DomainTools. I am going to miss this tool when it is no longer available.
