Default Domain Name Searching

I know there is a domain name searching site that allows for name searches with wild cards, such as philadelphia*.com for the obvious possibilities.

What is that service?

Richard:

That, for some unknown reason, doesn't include the eu domain, or the domain of any non-anglophone country. For someone claiming to be God, it's rather inadequate.

Probably that is because DNS Central (which provides http://onewhois.com/) does not have registering .eu domains as one of its services... it looks like you can search only TLDs that they are actually a registrar for (and they're a Tucows reseller, actually).
