Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.


DLS has discovered a great website for generating great, made-up domain names.

The website is called Wordoid and it uses phonetics rules to generate internet domain names in English, Spanish, French and Italian. You can choose to put a word somewhere inside the domain and Wordoid automatically generates hundreds of domain names, and also notifies you if those domains are registered or not.

I had fun with it for almost an hour and I must say it works really well. For instance, here are some domain names it has came up with, for the word "web": websterday, webstern, websterdam, webels (as in web rebels?), webergency, websteria, webberman, webberian, etc. (Wordoid notifies you if .com or .net are available).

As you can see, even though some of the results are pretty funny, they can actually be used for a a website domain name.
