Domain Name Lookup Tool
gem install domainblob
How to use
Usage: db [MODE FLAG] [options] seed_keyword -v, --verbose Output more information -c, --check MODE FLAG: Checkfile mode -l, --list MODE FLAG: Phraselist mode -q, --quickcheck MODE FLAG: QuickCheck mode -h, --help Display this screen
When you run the script, with db insert_cool_word_here then it will use your root phrase to check over 200 potential domain names for availability. (Using pre-made prefix and suffix lists I have included in the package)
When it is done, it will create a text document named after the phrase you used as your seed - followed by the number found to be available. It will put this result file into your newly created 'blobs' folder. Example: blobs/Tech30.txt
db --list joes_list_of_seed_keywords.txt
db -l joes_list_of_seed_keywords.txt
- Create a txt document named totalPhraseList.txt in the same directory as the script
- The script will process each line of the totalPhraseList.txt document, so put one seed word per each line and they will be run right after another.
- When you run the script, with ruby domainblob.rb then it will use your root phrase to check a couple hundred potential domain names for availability.
- Sit tight.
- When it is done, it will create a text document named after the phrase you used as your seed - followed by the number of domains found. Example: blobs/Tech30.txt
This is what to use when you just want to check a domain name on the fly. Just type:
db --quick domain-name.com
db -q domain-name.com
And it will check whether the domain you entered is available or not! No more going to Godaddy all the time!
This is what to use when you have a long list of domain names that you want to check. Simply load them all into a text file, one per each line, and then set domainblob on it. Here's an example:
db --check joes_list_of_domains.txt
db -c joes_list_of_domains.txt
How Long Does it Take?
It takes a while. We do not use the RegEx & Zone File method for finding domain name availability. While that would be fastest, I do not have Zone File Access and even if I did -- I would not be allowed to distribute that Zone File.
