(no subject)

For one of my classes1 I will have to buy a domain name. Of course, the instructor mentioned that the hard part of the assignment will be choosing a name. I remember seeing a website that allowed you to enter a desired name and showed if it was still available, and on which extensions (.com, .net, .org, etc.). I even put in "camomiletea", and noted that it was taken on .com, but not .net. I don't remember where it is, and I didn't realize that it would be useful for me in future, so I didn't bookmark it. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? (I won't choose "camomiletea.net" though.)

Another question

What is the word for the dictionaries in which the words are sorted by the last letters, rather than the usual order? For example, in such a dictionary the word "microb" would appear later than the word "scarab" (because the ending letters "ob" would be later than "ab"). Bonus points if you know where I might find such a dictionary ;)
