Wordlists - Domains

Wordlists

Are just lists of words: there are many. I found a list with over 9000 English nouns, and just had to test.

aardvark
abacus
abbey
abdomen
ability
abolishment
abroad
abuse
accelerant
accelerator

First, added a 'www.' to the beginning, then a '.com' to the end: ah, urls!
How many of these are used? I had heard nearly all domains that make some kind of sense (and a few more) are taken already. Seems not so much.

Just curl'd them, then counted the http stati:

9111 urls have:

200 OK    3565
301     1697
302     752
304     0
404     63
403     49
410     0
500     8
and a bunch of never seen response codes, like 416, 456, or 501.

All in all, 2045 urls had no response at all.
