“I Need Name” is a free to use web service that helps webmasters in finding available domain names. The website mainly targets Google Chat users as its users. All you have to do in order to use the website is to add the site’s contact to your Gtalk contacts.
Once that happens, you will instantly be able to view the online status of the contact you added. Named ‘domain’, you can begin chatting with this contact. The purpose of this chat is to help you quickly determine whether or not a particular domain is available. If you want to search for an available domain, all you do is click on the ‘domain’ named contact in your Gtalk list.
In the chat window that opens up, you enter the domain name you want to search. The service quickly looks up the availability of the domain name and notifies you of the results as a chat response. For example, if you want to see whether or not our domain name is available, you will type makeuseof.com as a chat message to your Gtalk ‘domain’ contact. The response will be a ‘not available’ message along with the time taken to conduct that search and give you that message.
