Direct forms for some search tools:

Domain Country Code Lookup

This is a simple lookup I wrote to automate the process of identifying the general origins of a domain. It doesn't do a whois (see the next few tools) to identify where the actual domain registration is -- it merely tells you where the domain is associated by the domain extension (.COM, .NET, .ORG could be ANYWHERE, so that's not going to tell you much).

Compute Intensive domain name search

This is a useful tool for people wanting to find out who "owns" a specific domain for instance, or if the domain is registered (just because you can't access a site doesn't mean the name isn't already owned).

Network Intensive domain name search

This is an alternate location for the same engine used above.

ProWeb domain name search

This is yet another domain lookup.
