There is nothing specific in JSP for doing this.

Moving to Sockets and Other Internet Protocols.

Sending your customers to other web sites (internic uses Verisign to query .com and .net TLD's) is not a good business model.
Perhaps you could exec an nslookup on the requested domain. If it comes back with a negative result, the domain should be available.
There can be issues since there is a delay of several hours between a domain being registered and that registration being propogated through the DNS. I'm not sure how to handle that.
