1. Creating Your Own Personalized Search Environment

FreshDrop allows you to select a multitude of criteria when searching for domain names. Two grids are provided to select a particular market and type of domain name to be shown in the results. Additional filters may be set for the current search results and a search field is supplied to find domain names based on an entered keyword.

Use the Data Feed Grid to select a defined marketplace and the Quick Filter Grid to refine your search criteria to a specific type of domain name. The results are displayed at the bottom of the page in the Results Grid and change as new criteria is selected. Filtering Options are located to the right of the displayed results. This guide will explain how each feature works in detail to improve your user experience.
