You may recall that I recently asked about running searches against domain names. I have now gotten a .com zone file from Verisign, which is basically a list of all registered .com domain names. I imported it into my local MySQL. There are ~ 185,000,000 domain names and it's too much for my workstation to run searches on. Just running count(*) takes 10 minutes. It's 6G of data. We want to run searches basically to find domain names with certain words or phrases. We don't have a dedicated server for this but his web account does have disk space for 6Gs, but I am wondering if we will be able to run searches. His idea was to break it up into 8 pieces, and then to run each search 8 times, against just that one eighth of the full list. Anyone have any better idea? Thanks!
