Domain Name Generator

I recently wrote a new domain name generator called Impossibility. Unlike most domain name generators, it actually comes up with some pretty good results. It works by combining your keywords with a custom suffix/prefix dictionary and rapidly scanning the results for unregistered domains.

The site proved to be fairly popular with Reddit and Hacker News, and since November, more than 120,000 searches have been performed.

With all that traffic, I thought it would be interesting to post some statistics. So, here's the top 50 most searched for domain keywords:

Rank Keyword Searches
1 app 1055
2 deal 617
3 code 607
4 game 564
5 book 547
6 sex 485
7 tech 481
8 cloud 468
9 node 464
10 list 415
11 shop 405
12 web 394
13 photo 389
14 data 347
15 a 347
16 games 326

45 note 211
46 test 209
47 talk 207
48 geek 206
49 blue 203
50 map 202

Clearly, the results are heavily influenced by people looking for good startup names, with terms like "app" and "cloud" rounding out the top 10 (in fact, several people sent me thanks for helping them find names for their projects).

PS: If you're wondering how the site actually works, just read over the front page. The short answer? It's written in Node.JS.
