Basically, they are domain names which make a witty word or phrase. For instance, GoingForThe.Win would be one and also TheHosting.Club. Anyway, these things seem to be in style now so do you have one or have you heard of any witty ones?

I've seen a lot of catchy domains like this, especially with the rise of all of these new domain extensions that have come out in the last few years. For example, there's a free forum host I've seen advertised a lot lately that has "Foru.ms" as the domain name.

Oddly enough though, despite the fun, only a .com seems to have marketing power. Other stuff is confusing. Do you think a lot of people can remember these domain hacks - or any other non-.com domain?

I used to have an image host called Cyanima, and I was able to get the domain cyan.im.

Then I figured I could link the images like http://cyan.im/a/image.png I thought that was kind of neat!

It seems to have a big advantage. For one thing, you get cPanel access. I wonder what the negatives are?
