What Are Domains and Why Are They Important?

If you’ve been following along on the blog lately, you’ll know a lot about domains, how they work, and (most importantly) how valuable domain names can be when it comes to SEO.

A domain name is the bit before the .com or .org or .net or etc…

Picking the WRONG domain is a big mistake that many people make when they’re just starting a site.

And once the domain has been selected, and the site is up…

…If you have the wrong domain, it can be practically impossible to “fix”.

Sites that choose the RIGHT domain name can achieve faster, higher rankings in the search engines – with far fewer links than competitors who have selected poorly optimized domains.

But pick the wrong domain, and getting high rankings (and traffic!) can become a struggle – with more effort, more time and more links required to get the same results.

What does Domain Samurai do?

Domain Samurai helps you to find high value, highly optimizd domains in your market, in seconds!

  • Quickly discover Keyword Optimized Domains in Your Market that you can register immediately; Send the results of your keyword research straight into the “Domains” module, and find out in seconds what the best SEO optimized domains are for your site.
  • Select from 19 domain types (.com, .org, .net etc), add hyphens, prefixes or suffixes – and uncover hidden dynamite domains;
  • Find profitable Aged Domains in Seconds: Connect Domain Samurai to the powerful DomainFace database to automatically search 100,000′s of domain sales and auctions; Find dozens of keyword-relevant domains for sale with pagerank, domain age, backlinks and even traffic, in no time.
  • See trusted SEO data about Aged Domains at a glance. Sort and filter by Domain Age, PageRank, domain keyword densities, backlinks, indexed pages and more;
  • And much, much more…

And – so that you don’t need to redo your existing keyword research, Domain Samurai is compatible with Market Samurai. This means you can open up your Market Samurai files inside Domain Samurai, and immediately check for domain names in your market.

Where Do I Get Domain Samurai?

Here’s where you can get your copy right now:

Again, we’re releasing Domain Samurai for free as part of our launch…

Not “free trial” – not “forced continuity, pay for something else to get this free” – Domain Samurai is yours, free to keep.

All you need to do is register for your copy now.


P.S. – I realise some people around the world will be getting this message on April 1st – but no, this is not a lead-in to some “too good to be true” prank.

For the record… Yes, Domain Samurai actually exists… And… Yes, we are actually launching it for free to you today.

  1. Thank you for letting us know it is not an “April Fool’s” joke. I was beginning to wonder.

    I have to admit, I am still waiting for the catch. This is too good to be true!

    You guys are great.

  2. Oh, shoot! Found the catch. Do we need to have Domainface for this to work?

    I see the value in having it, but others may not. Can you describe the benefits of having Domainface?

    And how much is it? I just don’t want to get attached to something I will not be able to afford at the moment. I already have other stuff in my budget right now and can’t keep adding to it on the fly.


    Brent Hodgson replied:

    DomainFace have made a free option available for us.

    This gives Domain Samurai users the ability to search through their domain database (currently around 650,000 Aged Domains).

    Plus, it gives you access to their PageRank data on Aged Domains – all for free.

    I think their paid data service works out to be around 0.27 per day, and offers access to some additional data sources that DomainFace have access to.

    Emily replied:

    Really, why do I bother asking questions. You guys already answered them I just have to keep looking.

    Thanks Mike for your answer too.

    I think it is a great offer to buy Domainface for lifetime. I really hate adding to my monthly budget, which I like to keep reasonably low in case I have a bad income month.

    I already started trying it out, and it is so easy to use. You guys at MS are ridiculously cool.

  3. Downloaded it, installed it, and started using it. The now-familiar interface makes it a snap to run. Already knowing how to drill down, filter and analyze the data is very reassuring. Good job, guys, and ‘Thanks!’.

  4. Woohooo, have been waiting for this for quite sometimes!

    Just run the software on a test (use 7day trial of domainface), added 5 seed keywords, wait for 15 minutes or so, it still running and have not return any result yet.

    Any suggestion how long it normally run?

    Thanks again!


    Brent Hodgson replied:

    Sounds like it might be related to a temporary outage at DomainFace (only for a minute or two). 15 minutes is far too long. Normally it takes less than a minute.

    Send us an email via Support if the issue comes back.

    If there’s a bug affecting some users, I want to make sure that it gets stomped as soon as possible.

  5. Emily,
    The registration is free, full featured for a week, and then limited in numbers of searches and results – not too bad for free, and do you really need more than the top 200 results?

  6. 6

    Is domainface down from being slammed with traffic?

    Brent Hodgson replied:

    Yes – for a few minutes it was.

    It looks like it’s been fixed (permanently) now. It was a single setting that needed to be changed.

  7. 7

    Really nice app you’ve made ! I am already buy some “gold” domains with her help;)
    But i’ve found one really annoying bug – if i want to search for .co uk domains , the app gives me co-uk domains instead of And I also cant search for domains in Aged Domains section. :{

    Brent Hodgson replied:

    THAT is a bug that I want to get fixed ASAP.

    I’ve informed the tech guys, and they’re on it.

    Thank you for letting us know about it.

  8. You guys have saved me a lot of time brain storming and manually checking out names even when I come accross one I think is good.

    The way back machnine helps and other random sites bbut the time invested is way too great also its a guess at the end.

    I am surprised you’re offering it free though. Okay I am happy too that I dont have to whip out my credit card :p

    Thank you very much and I’ll be taking Domain Samurai for a spin shortly.

    Thank you

    I just used it to purchase 5 domains. Do you have plans to integrate it into Market Samurai?

    Brent Hodgson replied:

    Hrm – it would work well inside the Market Samurai workflow… (like Sean points out below)

  10. 10

    Quick Question: I use market samurai to judge the competition, how can you just use the Domain Samurai to make an informed decision on the competition without the Competition module?


    Brent Hodgson replied:

    Hrmm… This is a tough one.

    The SEO Competition module we can’t make free through Domain Samurai. (We’ve already had thousands of Market Samurai users pay for it)

    However, we did allow Market Samurai files to be opened inside Domain Samurai. Perhaps the best option for now is to open your .msam Market Samurai files (containing your keyword research) inside Domain Samurai.

    Would someone please post a link to the differences between DomainFace Basic and Full access? I checked the DomainFace home page and it doesn’t say; I even checked their TOC and didn’t see it. If it’s not listed anywhere on a web page, then would someone who has a DomainFace account look inside and let us know if it states the differences? The full access trial is only 7 days, so I don’t want to start the clock by creating an account until I’m actually ready to use it. Thanks.

    Brent Hodgson replied:

    Here’s a list (from Step 2 of the DomainFace signup system):

    I hope it helps

    Looks good! Will put it through it’s paces when I get back from town today. Can’t wait! :)

  13. I had hoped this function would be an improvement to market samurai rather than a totally separate software that is connected to another service that we have to subscribe to that only returns limited results unless we pay big money for.

    Karen replied:

    Interesting perspective….while I do agree that it would have been nice to have DS integrated into MS, somehow I think that it could have the possibility to create a software that would be too clunky, or should I say difficult to move around within the software.

    Secondly, if you had spent all the money for research and development of DS, how would YOU offer it as opposed to the current solution?

    Oliver replied:

    I’m glad it’s a seperate program because Market Samurai is almost feature-overloaded anyway already. Just do your research and then move it over to Domain Samurai. Where’s the problem?

    “Big money”? What’s your time really worth, or what do you want it to be worth?

  14. 14

    Why do I keep getting “No Data Received For Too Long”?

    Brent Hodgson replied:

    Hi Sean,

    I have one of our devs here tracing that bug right now.

    On the surface, it seems to be caused by a load issue at our end (i.e. thousands of people searching for new domain data at once).

    Because it’s an intermittent bug, you may find if you run the search again in a minute or two it may go through. However, we’re working on it right now – so hopefully we can get rid of these teething bugs very soon.


    Praz replied:

    I am also having the same bug. I dont see any search result.

  15. 15

    So, what’s up with this 7 day trial if this thing is suppose to be entirely FREE? I downloaded the app, do a search and it won’t let me continue until I sign up AGAIN online?

    Brent Hodgson replied:

    Hi Derek,

    We’re re-working our signup system right now. It looks like there’s some confusion around it.

    If you check your email now, there should be a download link from us.

    If you follow that link, you should be up and running within a few minutes after installing and registering.

  16. 16

    I have a question about hyphens. Do hyphens have a negative impact on search results for pages within the website ( other than top level domain).


    Would this page rank better without the hyphens?


    Google Arbitrage replied:

    I prefer underscores instead of hyphens because that way I can separate and process “hyphened words” from url. For example using pre-school.html we have two interpretation for word: “pre school” and “pre-school”. This may cause problems when retrieving data by using keyword from url (you can bypass problem with attached id, but its not pretty anymore :)

    But results page… I have tried three versions of concatenating word on url: “pre-school”, “pre_school” and “pre%20school” but after months of testing I can’t really say which one works better. Sometimes one, sometimes other. I’d say hyphen works slightly better for SERP but as stated above, I rather use underscores because of stricter meaning and easier data processing.

    Some say hyphen on domainname is not as good as without, but I have not been in change to test it extensively…

  17. I was in the process of signing up for the Domainface trial, read the T&Cs (looking for the cost after the free week, as it happens – it’s not there as someone above noted), closed the tab assuming it had opened in a separate one, to find it wasn’t – so couldn’t get back to the signup process, couldn’t rememenber the name, had to come here to find out what it was. Duh! I wonder how many people they have lost because of not setting the link to open in a new window or tab!

    Anyway, looking forward to trying it. Thanks!

    Steve Hards replied:

    OMG, the domain variation presets feature is genius! Thanks again!

  18. 18

    Great software guys …but as a paid MS user I would have liked a ‘loyalty type’ offer for signing up to the full service at Domain face just as a ‘thank you’. You know the kinda offer that goes somthing like “paid users of MS get lifetime option @ a 50% reduction!”

    This benefits you two fold;

    1st you retain a core loyalty base of paid MS users that are MORE likely to sign up to DF

    2nd. it encourages non paid (trail)users Of MS to upgrade – AND sign up to a paid user of DF!

    Some peps have supported MS right from the start – as a novice in IM going back a few years whilst doing the 30 day challenge I couldn’t believe it when they ( ed & co) introduced us to this software – what a revelation! I couldn’t get my credit card out fast enough – the price was a no brainer!!

    Unless you are considering domain brokerage or domain flipping for a living full time, then I suppose the free version will suffice.

    Just my thoughts lads, not a slight but an opinion.

    Keep up the good work on educating & supplying good quality info to new & experienced marketers – without the noise.

    DomainFace: $197 for LIFETIME !—-no brainer.

    Very smart marketing >>> good for you!

  20. Thanks a lot guys!

    As always you bring out the most amazing, professional time saving tools.

    And looking through the postings just for today your Support is as always superb.

    It must be all the good weather you have there in the beautiful side of the planet.

  21. I tried it rigt now. It seems promising and works o.k.

    I’m more concerned about buying. Can there be any scam? What if the owner claims his domain back. I saw few PR4 and PR5 domains there with hundreds of backlinks. I can’t imagine why they are on sale.

  22. 22

    Keep getting no results over and over and over again.

  23. 23

    Hey, fantastic work on another great product! :D

    Just wondering if/when we can have .au included as a filter?


  24. Brent, I thought you’re releasing the new module of Samurai – Adword.

    Domain Samurai is great tool, about domainface, why not get special offer to existing of Market Samurai. Waiting your reply.

  25. 25

    Thank you so much. This will save me hours of my time!

  26. Great Guys! You’ve aced it again! Trying it right now…

  27. Wow! Another Samurai? And a free one at that.

    I really should be able to make money now that I have both Market Samurai and Domain Samurai in my arsenal.

    Thanks again!

  28. OMG! This is too good to be true! Long live Noble Samurai!


  29. 29

    Anyone else getting this error?

    ‘No data received for too long’

  30. 30

    Guys, with regards to special offers DomainFace = Market Samurai = Domain Samurai

    I’ve been using it yesterday and here are my thoughts:
    -It would be great it you could combine sorting filters (for example display all domains, with a PR>3 , by expiry date etc..)
    At the moment you can order by only one column which makes it a tricky
    -Today it doesn’t work, I’m getting “waiting too long for connection” errors
    -Could you check if a domain is available automatically instead of having to click check?

    Great work on this, looking forward to the next updates.

  31. 31

    Are the aged domains checked if they have been banned in the past?

    Knowing the PR, backlink etc. is nice, but what if the domain is for sale for a reason and google has banned this site in the past or red flagged to site.

    Does Domainface has some sort of banned check?

    And I am also wondering if Market Samurai buyers can get a special discount.

  32. This is a very cool tool and useful for those who are into domain hunting.However there seems to be some bug for the past few hrs that caused the tools to pop out “No data received for too long”, i still can’t get it work out despite attempting to do a domain research a few hrs later. Hope the tech support team are doing something about it.

  33. 33

    Great job guys, did some search last night, unique functionality in so many ways. Domainface seems to be a cool service but I wish it was an option that can be switched off for the sake of smoother searching of new domains and used when necessary.

    1 Bug/Issue: I’m out for hours now (“No data received for too long” when searching for domains), but I guess that’s something you guys are working on already.

    Keep up the good work.

  34. The program is buggy. I tried to find domains several times since the last 24 hours and I get the same result “No Data Received For Too Long”. I think it still requires a lot of development. Definitely it is a very powerful tool with very good features. But I’m unable to discover the power of the tool. Developers please fix this bug asap. :)

    Good work.


  35. 35

    Yes, I agree (”No data received for too long” when searching for domains) is extremely annoying and preventing productivity

  36. Cheers on the great product and the great pre-launch buildup tutorials.
    I always had known that age was important, but this hammered it home.

    Using your software I secured for $60.00 today on

    I think this domain was 7 years old and the keywords Lapel Pins are searched 135,000 times last month.


  37. I totally agree that the issue regarding ”No data received for too long” is annoying. It seems to be still there despite attempting to do a domain research approx 10hrs later. hope someone from market samurai is doing something on it.

  38. Yeah same here with the ”No data received for too long” error.

    Was working fine up till last night.

  39. 39

    I have the same problem, Domain samuari adviced me:

    “Could you please send me a debug log?

    To do this, go to file->settings->debugging and then enable debugging.

    Then retry your domain search.

    Then go back to debugging, upload the file and let me know what the debug file number is.”

    This way they can see what caused the bug, hope this can help.

  40. I like the program and it’s great being able to see all the information including backlinks, PR, domain age etc. The trouble is all these domains seem to have a minimum price of $69. Where are all the under $10 domains?

  41. the software seems to work now. I am getting search results now.

  42. 42

    cool software…. but how do you really use it?

    if you have an existing site… and want to add more ‘juice’ to it… how does this help and how do you use the software??

    John Burroughs said:

    Hey, can you guys go into depth when buying an aged domain? I recently bought one and the age of the domain restarted.

  44. 44

    Couple things I’ve found.

    1. A lot of the auctions on godaddy look like they aren’t being searched. I found one that I was looking at and put the domain name into samurai to see stats and it wouldn’t show that it was for sale. Checked some others and they weren’t showing up either. Maybe there’s a reason for it, not sure.

    2. I try to sort by “Expires” and it wasn’t working properly. Not the Whois expiration but the expiration of the auction or backorder date.

    Thanks guys, great software

  45. I love market Samaria and want to get started with this product. i can’t get a URL link wherever I look. Please help

  46. This software is going to be great but at the moment I think it needs some more time.

    1) You should be able to select from those expiring periods you spoke about(auto renew, redemption, pending delete, delete). A lot of people don’t bother renewing their domain until the pending delete phase and it seems pointless watching domains which seem to always get renewed. Being able to select just pending delete and deleted domains and search just them for example.

    2) It’s not showing enough domains. I do separate searches on other services and those domains don’t show up in Domain Samurai.

    3) Maybe this isn’t to do with the software but almost all the domains that come up related to all the keywords I’ve tried are almost always useless. I’m yet to find any good ones with a few hundred back links and good PR, or is it supposed to be rare to find a good one?

    4) Maybe it’s down to different data servers but things like back links and PR are some times way different compared to when I check manually.

    I’ll check this out again soon because it’s great! Until then, keep up the good work and good luck with it ;-)


  47. 47

    Already bought some domains through this, great tool and complement to Market Samurai – but would like to search on domains, willyou be adding this?


  48. 48

    i got quite a few stone old domains for sale, but i am not much into domains where is the best place to offer them for sale at all

    any ideas where to best sell them?

  49. 49

    I was not able to get any one Godaddy result in my free domainface trial. It is all those $69 domains at pool and elsewhere…

    Will Godaddy be included?
    Or is it included but there are some bugs at the moment?

    I am trying to make a decision about either buying this or another service but some questions seem to be ignored around here. (I also have another ticket waiting for the last few days)

    Still waiting for an answer to whether Godaddy feeds will be available so I can make a more informed decision…

    I really think you people should invest in a community/help person. 3 more people before me asked the same in the last week. You could at least say you are working on it or something…

    Brent Hodgson replied:

    GoDaddy domains are in there.

    They won’t always show up in every search – it depends on what your keywords are, whether GoDaddy has any domains for those keywords, and whether those domains are in the “top 200″ domains as determined by DomainFace for your search.

    tarcin replied:

    My test searches had very broad keywords (think “marketing” or “internet”). Godaddy alone would return thousands of results for these.

    In that case then it must be the “top 200″ setting. I wasn’t aware of such designation. Apparently it favors backordering services’ feeds more.

    Re: top 200… is this there because of the trial being a trial of the basic subscription? I mean, with my purchase of DS package would I be able to see all available domains?

    Or is there a top 1000 for that package -or something ?

    I really hope this will be a Freshdrop killer, which at the moment seems to be more capable (but WAAAAY too pricy).

    And finally, thanks for the response. Sorry for sounding bitter, I am really in a mood for domain shopping this spring :)

  50. HI I was wondering if the keyword search in domain samurai has a filter or function similar to the SOC (strength of competition) in MNF (micro Niche Finder)??

  51. Guys, you are always delviering way more value than one could ask. You video’s and tutorials on the software and the SEO space are awesome. Great learing opportunity. DS is great software when it works well, still getting the “tried to many times” error more often than not – still I was able to snag a really good domain last week for a client that will be huge.

  52. Much appreciate ! Mr Brent Hodgson and Michelle, Thanks for sharing such useful tool.

  53. 53

    I have the same question as John Burroughs from comment #43.

    Having found a 7 year old domain I wanted (aged but never indexed), I registered with all 3 of the recommended sites and got it.

    Now however (as John highlighted) the domain registration details show as:

    Created: 2010-04-16
    Expires: 2011-04-16
    Updated: 2010-04-16

    Effectively the domain is no longer an aged domain!

    From the Whois page it specifies:

    Registrar History: 2 registrars
    NS History: 9 changes on 7 unique name servers over 7 years.
    IP History: 11 changes on 8 unique name servers over 6 years.
    Whois History: 17 records have been archived since 2005-03-07.

    So the big question is, is this domain still aged? Will Google interpret the Whois history as the age OR registration details which are now showing as 2010.

  54. 54

    I’m in the same situation as John from post #43. managed to get the domain… its now gone to bidding but the whois data is showing the date when registered the domain… hence the domain has completely lost its domain age.

    Any ideas?
