Sneaky domain name hack
#1
Here's a little "gray hat" trick I use.

Get a domain name similar to this: com-special.info

Note the com- at the beginning of the domain name and it's a .info extension.

com-specials most likely isn't available, but brainstorm words you can use in place of "special".

Using Namecheap or other register service (or Cpanel) add a subdomain redirect to it such as:
BestAcne

And the domain will appear as:
BestAcne.com-special.info

It makes the domain look like it is:
BestAcne.com

You can use any keywords as the "sub domain" and it will look relevant. Just try to come up with a good generic word to use with com- at the begining.

Some examples:
dogtraining.com-special.info
CarInsurance.com-special.info
Keto.com-special.info
Dating.com-special.info

Here's how to create a sub domain redirect using NameCheap so you can point URLs like in my OP above anywhere on the Web.

The term SNEAKY really sums this one up great. I was delighted to have come across this and within minutes I have five really good .info domains. Looking forward to trying this out soon

Where did you buy them? Last time I tried Namecheap they wouldn't register the one I wanted, saying similar names have been used for bad things in the past. I can see that, but that doesn't mean everyone has bad intentions.

As you said Namecheap didn't seem to want to do business but NameSilo was quite happy to take my money. Hope this helps
