While DomainTools does offer certain free services, they also sell two different memberships to those who need complete and unlimited access to their search engines, databases, and professional services.
They sometimes highlight their services through the use of specific domains, such as DailyChanges.com and Screenshots.com. Screenshots.com was more recently launched, in December, 2011, and features historic screenshots of a given domain. While this type of service is offered elsewhere, DomainTools' version has received great reviews as it is more frequently updated, quicker, and features an entire screenshot.
DomainTools has recently been highlighting its IP protection and brand management services. They were in attendance at International Trademark Associations's 134th meeting in May, 2012. These services include Reverse Whois lookups, Domain name ownership records and finding domain typos to trademark alerts, registrant alerts and domain monitoring.
DomainTools was acquired by Thought Convergence in 2008, and became an independently held company in 2009; they have recently increased their workforce, redesigned their website, strengthened their Alexa rating, designed and moved into a new office space, and invested heavily in new infrastructure and technical improvements.
In early 2012, DomainTools was delegated trademarks related to its names and services, and logo.
