Every designer & developer has at least few domain names (some of us has many).

Also, we all have projects in mind that searching the domain names for them is sometimes the biggest joy of the project as it is an important process.

The tools & services mentioned in this post are not the "all" solutions you can find but, considering domain names are valuable assets, they are the ones I experienced or still using regarding managing & searching for domain names. And they work great.
