Hacking can be a bad word, but not when it’s applied to domain names. Domain hacking refers to using your creativity to make fun domain names that span across the dot.
Domain hacking combines the second level domain and top level domain to make a memorable domain name. The second level domain is the part to the left of the dot that forms your personal domain address. The top level domain, or TLD, is the part to the right of the dot.
In the domain example.com, the second level domain is ‘example’ and the top level domain is ‘com’.
Let’s explore some of the ways you can “hack” your domain to come up with a memorable address for your website, email address, and more.
