Description

The transform will try several word lists (think Lord of the Rings names, planet names, colours, TLDs etc.) as DNS names. If it finds a match in a specific word list it will try the entire word list. In this way it will try to determine the naming schema for the domain. Note that the transform can take a while to complete - especially when it finds a match in a long word list. The test depth per word list can be set in the transform. In the screen shot below we see how different TLDs exists inside the domain.


Typical Use Case

URL --> Domain => DNS Name

==> DomainToDNSNameSchema
--> Related Transform


Example Usage

The transform does not return any results on "paterva.com" as none of our name servers match the transfroms naming schema. Trying the transfrom again for "linode.com", some of their DNSNames match the naming schemas used by the transform.
