So until about five minutes ago I had no idea how to determine whether a domain name was already in use or not. Normally I'd just type in the url and see if it takes me to a page, but this doesn't always tell you if someone already owns the domain.
All you need is the following website DomainTools.com. Just type in the desired dmain name and presto the site tells you if it's available. Pretty cool. Now come check out my new blog on gardening at BloomWater.com
