domain-hack.gifDo you know who is Matt Mullenweg ? No !!! Let me tell you, Matt is the founding developer of the popular open-source blogging software WordPress and writes a popular blog Photo Matt. In late 2005, he founded Automattic, the business behind and Akismet. But the topic is domain hack and I am talking about Matt, the WordPress founder. Just a few days before, Matt has got the domain name which redirects to his blog. How he got this domain is a long story, you can read this on his blog. This is?a perfect example of?Domain Hack. was registered to create (a social bookmarking website), the most visited and popular domain hack.

A domain hack is an unconventional domain name that combines domain labels, especially the top-level domain (TLD), to spell out the full “name” or title of the domain, making a kind of pun.

For example the second-level domain (SLD) makes use of the TLD .gs (South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands) to spell “blogs”. Also a second level domain is making use of top level domain .tt. Whereas the third-level domains make use of the SLDs TLDs .us (United States) to spell “delicious”. Other examples are,,, etc.
By the way I tried for (sachin the most famous cricket player of India), but it is not available. ??
