Domain Name Hack: marketplace.com becomes mar.ketplace.com

Mar 01 2010

From WikiPedia, a domain name hack is an unconventional domain name that combines domain levels, especially the top-level domain, to spell out the full “name” of the domain. Examples include del.icio.us (http://del.icio.us/) and goo.gl (http://goo.gl/).

In this context, the “hack” represents a trick (as in programming), and not an exploit or break-in (as in security).

Another example: MARKETPLACE.COM

m.arketplace.com

ma.rketplace.com

mar.ketplace.com

mark.etplace.com

marke.tplace.com

market.place.com

marketp.lace.com

marketpl.ace.com

marketpla.ce.com

marketplac.e.com

marketplace.com
