If you are an active DomainTools user like me, you’ve probably noticed the DomainTools.com website has undergone an extensive re-design. I first noticed it live last night when doing a Whois search, and I saw the rest of the reveal this morning when the entire site went back online.
I was given an opportunity to test the site just prior to launch, and I am impressed with how easy it is to find everything. I was also able to discover a couple of tools I didn’t even know about. The company made sure to keep many things familiar, so the layout of records on Whois lookups is virtually the same.
It appears that the pricing structure and pricing have changed. Gone are the confusing “units,” replaced with actual costs in dollars. This is a very positive change, as it makes more sense to know what your costs will be rather than having to buy “units” of something that was previously a bit unclear to me. I have been assured that pricing structure will remain the same for current subscribers like myself, although the company did increase its pricing for the first time in ten years.
If you are an active user, I strongly recommend taking a tour of the website to save yourself some time. Maybe you’ll even discover a new tool along the way.
