There are many websites that offer the domain name availability check.
I want to do it in my code. Are there such web services? Thanks.

That's a touchy one. Domain Name registrars are a little leery of automated tools, since such things have been unleashed on their servers with punitive effect. Plus the primary users of automated registry inquiries are domain squatters. So web services are not something I'd expect to find as much of as for other similar activities. In fact, I believe that some registrars will even throttle requests, so even if you use an app like "wget" or "whois", you may only be permitted a limited number of inquiries within a given time period.
