information Artificial Intelligence Resources Available Today

Catch.Club Catch.Club
Artificial Intelligence, AI, continues to be the dominant topic in the business world, and in domain name circles.

When I wrote about GPT and Similar Artificial Intelligence Technologies, I ended with speculation on how AI might transform domain name investing.

In this article, I survey some of the AI-powered tools that are currently available right now for use by domain investors and those searching for a domain name.

SquadHelp

SquadHelp has been introducing AI resources at a rapid pace over the past months. Here are a few:
  • Both standard and premium listings can use AI-generated domain descriptions. I find the quality of the domain descriptions excellent, better than I could write. Also I like that the seller can customize the descriptions, adding content that the AI tool overlooked, or editing in other ways.
  • At SquadHelp, AI is also used to generate possible specific and broad uses, and what SquadHelp refer to as big ideas and emotions. This brings the system near to a fully automated domain listing process.
  • SquadHelp introduced AI-powered search for those seeking names, although personally I find the full potential of AI-powered interactive search is not yet achieved.
  • SquadHelp now have GPT AI-Powered social media posts. When logged into your SquadHelp account, at any domain name, there is a Share & Earn button on right. You select Instagram, Twitter or Pinterest, and the system generates a promotional presentation on that domain for you to share with your followers. If the name sells via your link, you earn $35 in affiliate commission from SquadHelp.
  • For premium domain names at SquadHelp, potential buyers can access a Check Brand Alignment AI-powered resource. This does a superb job of tailoring how the name could be used for a particular application. It also suggests visual branding such as preferred type of logo. The possible taglines for the domain name and application are very well done.
SquadHelp have other AI resources as well, and no doubt many more will be coming through the $10,000,000 investment by Hilco Digital in SquadHelp.

It was just announced that Darpan Munjal, CEO of SquadHelp, and Andrew Miller, of Hilco Digital, will be discussing AI and domain investment at the forthcoming NamesCon Global 2023 meeting.

Domains GPT

Steven Tey, founder of One Word Domains, recently introduced Domains GPT. The system uses GPT-powered AI to suggest names for particular applications. By the way, I just learned that Steven is presenting on Domains GPT at NamesCon Global 2023.

Domains GPT works this way:
  1. You first choose the type of name that you are interested in, made up brandable terms, two-word combinations, portmanteau combinations (like Instagram), names with alternative spellings (such as Lyft), or names from another language. One can also select random, and the system will choose.
  2. Next, you enter a brief description of what you are looking for, such as I want a short name for a branding and naming agency.
  3. Domains GPT then generates a set of possible names. In my trials, it typically presented 12-18 names, occasionally fewer. These are attractively presented using generated logos.
Domains GPT provides a small number of credits for those wishing to try the service, with each search (not each name) using one credit. You can purchase additional credits, or those who purchase a lifetime subscription to One Word Domains get 1000 credits, I believe.

When Domains GPT was first released, I did a couple of dozen searches. Domains GPT does generate some strong names, although many of the names it suggests are already registered, in some cases a long time ago. Nevertheless, it is a worthwhile starting point when seeking brandable names for a specific sector or niche. I did end up registering 3 names based on my searches, and am still considering others.

I think Domains GPT is potentially more useful than the existing domain name generators, but be prepared to invest time in researching results to find the strong names that are really available.

Dynadot

Dynadot quietly introduced four Ai-powered tools. To use them, just log into your Dynadot account and go to any name. Just to the right of the domain name, you will see a button called Ask AI. This activates any of the following:
  • Who can I sell this domain to? As suggested recently in the NamePros Blog, Will Anyone Really Use This Name?, one of the key questions centers on potential users. The Dynadot AI-generated content will help answer this question. I found that it did a good job, occasionally suggesting realistic uses I had overlooked.
  • The second option writes a sales description for the domain name. It does a sold job, similar to that offered by SquadHelp. Dynadot offers alternatives on the description though, so you can generate a description that is funny or quirky, enthusiastic or corporate.
  • The usefulness of the third option, a history of the domain name, varies with the domain name. Sometimes it just tells you it does not have information. At other times, it will indicate that there are no UDRP cases, lawsuits or blacklists. It does include a disclaimer that the information may not be up to date. It seems to me that it gave more complete answers when I tested it shortly after Ask AI was first introduced.
  • The final possibility in Dynadot Ask AI is to write a poem about your domain name. I don’t see much practical use for this, but it can be amusing.

Porkbun

It is easy to overlook when using their main domain search dialog box, but Porkbun has recently integrated OpenAI generated domain name search into their domain search. It is optional, and you select by using Try generating domain name suggestions using AI., located just under the search box. Alternatively, go directly to Porkbun AI Generated Search at this link.

I tried the Porkbun AI Generated Search with a few terms. You can repeat search to get a different results set. For the most part, it was not very innovative. However, the Porkbun AI search yields more interesting results when you enter a number of keyword terms, say 5 or 6, and then try a few searches. Many of the results it shows are various new extensions, so if you only invest in .com only a few of the displayed results will be of interest.

Since this article was written, Porkbun introduced AI-generated domain descriptions for domain names registered at Porkbun and listed on their marketplace and using their lander. I tried a few of these, and they work well. You can't edit the content, but you can regenerate if you don't like the first try.

BrandPa

One of the early innovators to use AI in their daily operations was the BrandPa brandable marketplace. That marketplace has for some time used AI to decide whether a name is accepted or rejected, and to propose a price. This results in instant decisions, but one without the benefit of human intervention. BrandPa also use AI to generate a description for the domain name, including possible uses.

So far at least, BrandPa seems not to have updated their automation system since the releases of Chat GPT and Bard. The system seems to me the same as it was last fall. Hopefully an update is in the works soon.

ChatSpot

Dharmesh Shah, founder of HubSpot, created a free tool currently in alpha called ChatSpot. If you don’t have a HubSpot account, you can log in using a Google account and give it a try.

The tool works with a variety of types of prompts. It provides prompt examples, but if you ask it to generate a list of possible company names in some sector or niche it will. You can include in the prompt a list of possible keywords, or other conditions such as a maximum length. Note that it does not have a way of checking current name availability, so you will find a number of results, the majority in my trials, not available to hand register.

Final Thoughts

This is not an exhaustive list of what is available, and no doubt many additional AI resources for domain names will be available soon. It is encouraging to see the rapid pace of development and implementation in our industry.

I did not cover the interesting AI resources for generating images, video and animations, some of which could lead to really captivating domain presentation.

This article also omitted use of AI to generate highly-personalized outbound emails, even though that is already in use, apparently very successfully, in some types of outbound marketing in other fields. A Google search indicates numerous tools to do this available right now.

If you have used an AI-powered tool not mentioned in the article, please share your reflections in the discussion below. Also, share your experiences about the tools that were mentioned.

I would like to end with a quotation Darpan Munjal made on March 7:
AI is not here to replace creative thinking but to amplify it.

Updates: Apr 20, 2023:
  1. I added a description of SquadHelp AI-powered Check Brand Alignment.
  2. Mentioned that the developer of Domains GPT is speaking at NamesCon. Also, the developer informed me that the product is now longer beta and now in public release, so that has been updated.
Updates: May 1, 2023:
  1. Updated Porkbun section to indicate they now have AI-generated domain descriptions for listings using their marketplace.
  2. A short update to Domains GPT indicating how credits work.

I like Squadhelp's AI generated description.
Writing description for my domains back then used to be very stressful

Thanks @Bob Hawkes for covering such a burning topic 🌹

IMHO, the use of AI in the domain industry, much like most other industries, is only just started.
This is the beginning, not the end. So it's too early to predict where it'll be in the coming days.

Will it enhance our ability - surely. Will it replace us, at least in some fields - it already started!

Thus far in human history, we never had something that can do what only us humans can! You can train a wild beast to perform extraordinary circus tricks. But could anyone ever train anything other than a human being to solve a math problem, or write poetry or draw an art piece only from some words? No, not even close! It even doesn't have to be original. The fact that AI can already do it to some extent, is an extraordinary achievement!

So we are in uncharted territory. We don't know how it'll turn out to be eventually. Every prediction we'll make about AI, will probably turn out to be wrong, at least to some extent.

So I won't predict, instead I'll just say I'm enjoying the show. Bring it on πŸŽ‰πŸΏ:coffee:

Regards,
Fayaz.

One more exciting thing is probably ChatGPT Plugins. While these are still in development and only accessible to a handful of people, I have no doubt that ChatGPT Plugins are going to be ground breaking.

Domain name related companies (Registrars, SAAS, Marketplaces, Large investors etc.) are surely already experimenting with their own version of ChatGPT Domain Name Plugin.

I've listed a few in the following Tweet:

This will allow brandable sales on these platforms - FINALLY...

I just did two small updates to the article. In the SquadHelp section, added Check Brand Alignment description. If you have some premium names at SquadHelp check this out. I tried it on one of my names that I thought would be challenging (a somewhat uncommon dictionary word .com), and impressed with the taglines it suggested for a couple of proposed applications. It is not currently available for standard listing names, however.

I have also learned that Steven Tey is presenting on Domains GPT, a great opportunity to learn more about that product if you are planning to attend the conference.

Couple of additional AI related things we've added recently that may or may not be useful:

1) Marketplace lander sales blurbs. This actually does a pretty decent job, even without using keywords if the domain is contextual.

Screenshot 2023-04-20 at 2.25.07 PM.png


2) HTML, CSS, and content for a single web page via our static hosting simple editor. Not sure how useful this one is but it does create some pretty decent pages from time to time.

Screenshot 2023-04-20 at 2.25.53 PM.png


We'll keep playing with this stuff and hopefully stumble upon some cool use cases.

@Bob Hawkes Where on the page is this? Is it called "Check Brand Alignment" or something else?

Thanks for dropping by @Porkbun – I updated the article to indicate the AI-generated domain descriptions you now offer. Keep the great work coming! Overall I find your landers are much better than a year or so ago.
-Bob

PS Also added an update re credits at Domains GPT.
