Before registering a domain name you should make sure that it is available. To do so, you need to query our DAS (Domain Availability System).

Contents

[edit] Using the API

The function domainCheck allows you to check the status of one or several domain names.

You can provide a list of domain names by separating them with semicolons: netim1.com;netim2.com;netim3.com; etc. You will then receive a result for each domain.

Caution

You can't mix different extensions when doing a domainCheck. 
Not all extensions accept a multiple domainCheck (see Category:Tld). In that case, you must check the domain one by one. 


[edit] Using HTTP

You can reach the URL below in order to query the availability of a particular domain name.

https://www.netim.com/bin/das-web.php?login=XXXX&password=YYYY&domain=[DOMAIN]

Replace "XXXX" with your reseller ID.
Replace "YYYY" with your DAS password.
Replace "DOMAIN" with the domain to be queried.

Caution For security reasons, your DAS password is not your reseller password. Please contact our support team to get your DAS password.

[edit] Limitations

Whatever the method used, a reseller is limited to 500 queries per day. You can increase this limit by contacting our support team.


[edit] Results

Whatever the method used, the result of an availability check will be one of the following statuses:

AVAILABLE The domain name can be registered.
AVAILABLE, RESERVED The domain name can be registered but it is a reserved term (special allocation rules apply).
AVAILABLE, PENDING APPLICATION The domain name can be registered but an application already exists at the Registry.
AVAILABLE, PREMIUM The domain name can be registered and is premium (special pricing apply).
NOT AVAILABLE The domain name has already been registered.
NOT AVAILABLE, RESERVED The domain name is not registrable.
NOT AVAILABLE, PREMIUM The domain name has already been registered and is premium (special pricing apply).
UNKNOWN, TIMEOUT The status is unknown due to a timeout.
UNKNOWN, INTERNAL ERROR The status is unknown due to an internal error at NETIM.
UNKNOWN, BAD SYNTAX The status is unknown due to the domain name's bad syntax.
NOT SOLD, PREMIUM The domain name is not sold because it is a premium not managed by NETIM.
CLOSED The requested extension is currently closed.
