Use freedomainapi.com to check whether a domain is available as both .de and .com
View checkdomain.php
<?php

$api_req = file_get_contents('http://freedomainapi.com/?key=YOURAPIKEY&domain=' . $domain);
$api_req = json_decode($api_req, true);
if($api_req['available'] == 'true') return true;
return false;
}
