Hi Fancois, I suspected as much. However, in this case, the existence of the domain on paper is also important - the purpose of the program is to generate all possible domain names based around a set of keywords, and then check to see if the domain has already been registered. The idea is to save me trying out dozens of permutations before I find a domain name that I like and that is available. I guess the only way to be sure is to eliminate all the unavailable domains and then do a whois on the remainder?
