    I have used Domain Tools but haven’t tried any other that you mentioned. Will give them a try. You should also take a look at InstantDomainSearch. It is a good tool that checks for domain name as you type.

    I always worry about using tools like this, that they will check their logs and steal the domain before I get it.
    Sometimes I can be very paranoid :)
