    Look, I make website for people. And they can also order a domain name to me, so they must therefore look for a domain name registration. So maybe there Jotform in a kind of tool for your own personal domain name can check whether he is busy or free.

     

    GOOGLE TRASLATE:

    kijk, ik maak website voor mensen. En ze kunnen bij mij ook een domeinnaam bestellen, dus ze moeten dan ook kijken voor een domeinnaam registratie. Dus misschien zit er in Jotform een soort tool waar je je eigen domeinnaam kan checken of hij bezet of vrij is.

    Unfortunately, no.  JotForm does not provide domain name registration service.  You can try NameCheap for registering domain names.

    but is there a check that people can see whether the domain name is still available? But then we register not only see if he is free.

    JotForm does not have domain name availablility look-up service.  When you visit the NameCheap webpage, you can search if the domain name is still available or not.  You can also try doing a whois lookup on domain names at http://www.whois-search.com/

    After doing some back reading, I would like to explain that JotForm does not have the capacity for doing what you're looking for.  You will have to develop your own script for this.

    If you know some PHP programming, you can try playing around with this downloadable script:

    http://webscripts.softpedia.com/script/Web-Hosting-Tools/Domain-Whois-41072.html

    I cannot guarantee that this is a working script or what its requirements are as I have not tested this.

    If you have other JotForm related concerns, please do let us know.

    Thanks.

    There should really be this widget available. So the people buying websites through your forms could request from the seller to acquire a particular domain name on their behalf.

     

    A simple domain name availability check, without an option to buy, simply check and choose if they also want to

    order a domain name WITHOUT THE ACTUAL BUYING PROCESS.

    Example:

    1. Choose a TLD dropdown (.com, .net and ALL the others)

    2. textbox where users can type in the domain name

    3. the indicator on the live form should instantly give a message ''it is available!'' or ''it is taken'', this text should be editable so it could be adjusted for different languages or the indicator should simply become red for taken and green for available.

    4. If the domain name is available, the checkbox should appear with an editable message saying something like ''I want this domain name'' and the users can then check the box and the form submission simply show that the user is interested in the particular domain.
