    I found one guy using domain like
    Code:
    www.xxxxxxxxx.com-123.info
    
    here he is using .info domain. I tried a lot to register and show error like "Invalid domain extension."

    How to register these kind of domain? any help?

    The example you give is a subdomain. dot info is the TLD (top level domain). You register the name - in your example:

    Then (depending on your hosting) you can create subdomains, which are like this:

    and so on. You can't "register" a subdomain - you register the domain, then create subdomains on it. I *think* that's why you're getting the error message.

    Does that make sense? I can explain further if not.

    That clearly explains it. He bought the -123.info first and then added the xxx.com subdomain. Pretty OOB thinking he has. I will go buy some of these too.
