dot-is domains for less, plus free DNS hosting

The ???.is??? extension is the top-level domain of Iceland and it allows for some creative domain hacks, i.e., clever tricks on the formation of a fully qualified domain name. Popular examples of dot-is domain hacks include ???but are not limited to??? who.is, myname.is, and hereit.is. Generally speaking, the only limitation on the formation of a playful domain name is your own imagination and creativity. But in the case of dot-is domains there’s also that tiny issue of cost; after shopping around we realized that for a dot-is domain you need to shell out approximately 100 dollars per year. Unless you turn to ISNIC, the official registrar of Iceland.
