    I've had to take it down as it's already exceeded it's quota within a few hours of being tested. I need to think about how best to optimise this without getting blocked, shame I don't get millions of delayed DAC queries, that's whats sadly lacking here. This is a detail I've sadly underestimated, already had several thousand different combinations tested since putting on staging a few hours ago.

    If anyone has any ideas or has worked around something similar before please PM me.

    Many thanks,
    Dave

    I will do when it goes live in a few days. I just wanted everyone's input on this one tool before I push it live to domaingenie.co.uk. Anything I'm obviously missing from this tool? etc.

    This will be the first publicly free tool and over the next month or two I will be adding more tools and spicing up the service with plenty of awesome features including domain management, parking, for sale pages etc all on domain genie. :D

    Looks good - very fast too.

    You might want to look at the Top 500 keywords and the popular suffixes / prefixes though. Is "cave" really that popular? And having the likes of California or Newyork or Argentina in the keywords doesn't really work with UK domains. Better to have UK places.

    Ok np was just going to contact you directly.

    I like the idea. :D and here are few suggestions.

    Would be nice for preset categories

    • Cities - Leeds, Manchester etc
    • Colour - Red, Green, Blue etc
    • Premium - Top, 1st, Best,
    and so on.

    You should add a "register now" or "Buy now" option as an aff or if you have your own TAG.

    How many results do you want drop down.
    • 25
    • 50
    • 100
    • 200

    • Have it so you can sort the list "Available" first etc
    • Maybe have an option to download or export the list.
    • Have the unavailable domain as a link to go to it.

    And surely the logo should have a lamp! :lol:

    Thank you so much mate.

    Fantastic feedback, just the sort I needed! Surprisingly didn't even think of some of those. In terms of results it just returns however many words are in the word list. Yep here are ideas for word lists:

    Animals
    Fruits
    Vegetables
    Cities
    Counties
    Colours

    Anymore ideas please? :)

    Yes ok I'll give the logo a lamp haha. :D

    Results coming up slow now, maybe if you look at live analytic overview you can see how many are actually using the tool. May need a VPS as it's crashed "something went wrong please try later"

    I am on a powerful ec2 instance, very unusual that it's gone so slow. All my tests up to now have been fine. I'm just forcing a reboot of the server so the tool will go down temporarily and will iron whatever the issue is ASAP. Apologies again.

    Ok it's back up and running. :)

    Such amazing feedback in such a short time, I knew I could count on this great community.

    Here's the features that will be added in time for go live in a few days. :)

    • Download list as CSV
    • Show whois and visit links next to unavailable domains
    • More than 50 preset word lists
    • Filter to append hyphen between keyword and word list
    • Show loading image next to search

    Thanks again to all of you so far. Keep the suggestions coming. :)

    Haha :D

    If anyone would like to help by submitting word lists to hello (at) domaincollection.co.uk it would be much appreciated.

    The format is simply a text file (.txt) with each word separated by a new line like so:

    PLEASE NOTE: I must re-iterate this is not a live system and may go down at anytime. I got an email from someone whilst it was down questioning how I can let a new service go down so soon. Again, this is NOT LIVE, just a test url.

    Thanks again all,
    Dave

    I had that in place mate but 1000 queries isn't a lot when possibly generating hundreds of combinations for a few keywords and I don't want it to block the user's general whois access during the day. I can reduce the word lists and then show a label with how many queries the user has left I suppose is the best choice. Will work on that tomorrow, for now having a break. :)
