The Domain Name Hack is an unconventional domain name that combines domain levels, especially the top-level domain (TLD), to spell out the full "name" or title of the domain, making a kind of pun.

Perhaps the most famous domain hack is del.icio.us. Some other examples include: go.to

If you want to register some of these domain names, check the price of the domain names and read some domain name tips!
