whois.net http://www.whois.net/
Baked exactly as described. There are plenty of other sites that do the same thing, but this one has an easy to remember URL. [mwburden, Jan 06 2002, last modified Oct 04 2004]

Come join the fun! http://duh.com/
...or maybe not [thumbwax, May 01 2002, last modified Oct 04 2004]

And if there is more than one? just displays them as a pair of links? or more like a search engine?

Ustabe you'd type url:whateverthehell and search, you'd get everything that contained the term plus everything that mimed it … whateverthehellyouwant, whateverthehellyouwnat, whateverthehellfor, and so on. Doesn't work like a dream, though

It's not a bad idea. Wild cards are used in many traditional search engines. Why not something that looks for variations of URLs and provide a list to choose from. This list could also include variations of spelling, hyphen vs. no hyphen and the mentioned suffixes.

Yeah, I think my browser has a "find the matches" sort of search capability, so I'd have to call baked as well.

Looks like PeterSealy has defaulted into PeterSilly mode. Get out the defibrillator .........CLEAR!

Sorry, but I have to go with [PeterSealy] on this one. Just go to whois.net (or any of 1000 other websites that let you do a whois lookup), type the part of the domain you know, and it will show you a list of matching domains.
-- mwburden, Jan 06 2002


Yes, [mwburden], but that's not nearly as nice as just typing in ".duh" as a top-level domain wildcard.
