There are two ways I know of to generate a list of urls that include
the term 'cingular'.

The first is to conduct the following search on Google:

[ allinurl:cingular com ]

This will find .com sites that include 'cingular' in the url.

You can see the results of this search here:


Even though the results line indicates that there are about 279,000 such sites:

Results 1 - 100 of about 279,000 for allinurl:cingular com

in actual fact, the search results show only about 400 sites, since
most of the remaining thousands are duplicates or sub-pages of the
sites already listed.

The Google results have the advantage of presenting sites pretty much
in order of their popularity on the web, so that the first few dozen
entries on the list are likely to be the sites (among those containing
'cingular' in the url) that are most often visited by those seeking
information on Cingular products.


The other option is to conduct a Whois search, and I recommend visting
this site for that purpose:
Whois Source

Once there, click on 'Domain Explorer', and then enter 'cingular' in
the search box.  You'll get thousands of results, starting with, and then the rest in alphabetical order, looking like








and so on.

You can use the tools at Whois Source to narrow the results a bit.  

If you check off the "Block Numbers" box, you'll eliminate the urls
with numbers in them, so that the list begins:





Similarly, clicking the "Left Anchor" option, will return results that
begin with the term 'cingular':






There are a number of other options here as well, which may be useful
in your searching, so I suggest exploring around a bit.

I trust this is what you needed.

However, if there's anything else I can do for you, please let me know
before rating this answer.  Just post a Request for Clarification, and
I'm at your service.

Thanks for the reply.  Let me tell you more specifically what I am
looking for.  The ideal results for me would be the following: 
(Mobile Communications Systems and owns about 38 Cingular retail stores)
(ATS Mobile Electronics and owns 51 Cingular retail sotres)

I don't care about the URL as much as I care about finding companies
who fit the above profile, I am looking for companies that own 25+
Cingular retail stores and from my experience it seems that these
companies usually use Cingular somewhere in their url/web name.  I
don't care to find out any information on Cingular themselves but just
the resellers such as the two companies I identified above.

Hello again.

Thanks for your note clarifying what you're after.  Your initial
question focused quite exclusively on the URL, while your
clarification makes it clear that the URL isn't as important as the
actual business being linked to.

For that reason, you may want to consider posting a new question,
making sure that it is specifically targeted to what you need.

However, that may not be necessary, if the following links get you
close enough.  Have a look at:


which searches for [ cinglular "authorized agent" ], and finds many of
the companies you're looking for.

Also check out:,GGLD:2003-43,GGLD:en&q=cingular&lmode=online&show=li&lnk=showgrid

which is a Froogle search for Cingular merchants.  Near the top of the
page is a set of options titled "Or refine by...".  One of the options
you can select here is [ Stores ].  Click on this to go to a list of
Cingluar merchants at Froogle.

You might also find this Yello Pages search result helpful:

Hope this does the trick.   Let me know if there's anything more I can do for you.
