"A domain hack is a domain name that suggests a word, phrase, or name when concatenating two or more adjacent levels of that domain. For example, "bir.ds" and "examp.le" (using the fictitious country-code domains .ds and .le) suggest the words birds and example respectively. In this context, the word hack denotes a clever trick (as in programming), not an exploit or break-in (as in security)."
If the Web was a crowded city...
.com was the ground floor,
and .ac & other TLDs allowed us to build upwards,
Then a DomainH.ac/k is like dropping a penthouse suite on top.
Option A: Do It Yourself
1. Invent your DomainH.ac/k
Use your ingenuity (or this tool if you don't have any)
2. Check Domain Name available at Reasonable Price
Price & Availabililty Comparison
3. Purchase Through a Registrar
My faves: NameSilo ($1 off: 'domainh.ac') | NameCheap BeastMode
For some obscure TLDs, you have to go a little off-road, e.g. getyou.rs in Republic of Serbia*
*(someone should grab that!
