Domain Name Registrar Search Tweak: Indicate that you already own It in Search Results

Many companies own lots of domain names, and manage them on one or two registrars.

When you do a search for a new domain it'd be nice if they listed domains that you already own differently from the domains owned by others. It's a little tricky for them sometimes, with different account associations or something.  It doesn't look like they do, at least the ones I've played with.

It's not really the main domains you'd need help with, most people know their key domains by heart, but it's all those other domain suggestions they mix into the results. Their results include different suffixes or word variations. Some of these are only suggested if they're available, but they also show the top level domains with a clickable check box or red X .

So a search on a registrar can show 30 domains on a screen, some with red X's, even if they're taken by you.

If some already do give us a comment.
