Website: Domain name generator that uses pronounceable-password-generation algorithm (I've ported it to Perl if anyone's interested), modified to allow user entry of starting strings, and maybe concatenation of common business name endings like "io" "ation" "ity", etc.
Generates a list of possibilities
and does whois lookups to assure they're not taken. Good partnership possibility with registration orgs.
I got the idea when trying the prounouceable password algorithm and one of the first strings it produced was "ebippity".
Anyone with algorithm expertise interested?
I've seen at least one other domain name generator that just uses common prefixes like "my" "ez" "worldwide" and common suffixes. This would be more random and presumably more creative and fun.
Pronounceable password algorithm
I've ported it to Perl and told the author about it. [syost, Mar 07 2000, last modified Oct 04 2004]
