I was wondering how one can query a (search) script from within my own php script.

For example, if I want to check whether www.mydomain.com is available, can I somehow query namecheap.com (or godaddy or whatever) 's  /search.php form, and get the result? (and parse it to get an either yes/no answer)

I am fairly sure this is possible as I've seen it done but cant remember where - would like to know how though  ;D

Any help much appreciated!
