A lot of tlds don't provide zone files unless you are a registrar. They would probably not be happy if someone put those out to the pubic. For com and the likes they would probably not care as much.

The best public list of domains I have found is the Project Sonar DNS (ANY) scans. I don't know how they do it, but their scans are pretty complete, at least for.dk domains, which are the ones I use.


It's quite slow to download from that site, I guess there are a lot of HN readers consuming their bandwidth :)

Their download speeds are often bad sadly, they really should provide a torrent. But it's free and they have some really interesting datasets, so it's worth the wait.

I started to look at this one week ago, wish it provide some restful api for this useful database
