The Domain Name Generator

Finding a domain name is hard, why not automate it? :)

🌱 How to start this project

Do not clone this repository.

The first step to start coding is cloning the vanillajs boilerplate on your local computer or opening it using gitpod.

a) If using Gitpod (recommended) you can clone the boilerplate by clicking here.

b) If working locally type the following command from your command line: $ git clone https://github.com/4GeeksAcademy/vanillajs-hello.

πŸ’‘ Important: Remember to create a new repository, update the remote (git remote set-url origin <your new url>), and upload the code to your new repository using add, commit and push.

Then follow this steps:

  1. Create one app.js javascript file.
  2. Add your code inside your app.js file.
  3. You have to use console.log("Any string"); to show something on the console.
  4. Run your code by typing: $ node app.js, if you run it locally, make sure you have node.js

πŸ“ Instructions

Create a script that generate all the possible domain name combinations from a list of pronouns, adjectives and nouns, for example:

let pronoun = ['the','our']; let adj = ['great', 'big' ]; let noun = ['jogger','racoon'];

Should generate something like:

thegreatjogger.com thegreatracoon.com ourgreatjogger.com ourgreatracoon.com thebigjogger.com thebigracoon.com ourbigjogger.com ourbigracoon.com

πŸ’‘Hint

You'll need to use nested for loops in order to mix the different values together.

Your tools: For loop, string concatenation.

😎 Feeling confident?

  • Add several types of extensions: .com, .net, .us, .io, etc.
  • Add domain hacks, for example: instead of lastOfUs.com you can use the .us domain like this: lastOf.us

A bit of history about the project

Before the domain market was centralized and converted into a mafia controlled by Godaddy, Enom and some others. Normal people like you and me were able to buy a .com domain relatively easy.

In fact, this project was originally built in 2002 by one of 4Geeks teachers while he was trying to find domain names to buy for several projects.
