Check the availability of a domain name with Whois
When you want to start creating a website, no matter what its nature is, it's important to check the availability of the domain name. Is the name you want to give to your site available? Has it been purchased by someone else?
Thanks to Whois by Oxito, you are able to check the availability of a domain name, or to check who's the owner if it's not available.
If your domain name is available, you can buy it (you can even buy more than one to be sure that they won't be taken by others). You can also choose the extension of your domain name: .com, .net, .org, .biz, .info, .it, .ch, .be, .li, .fr, .ren . eu (knowing that some of them can only be used according the postal address of your website).
You can also buy a domain name with several extensions (for example .fr and .com) to limit the competition on this domain name to the lowest level possible. On Oxito, a domain name only costs 15 Euros per year.
