    I was looking for a free Dynamic DNS service and i came across this website:


    Basically if you have a web server running on your home PC you and you most likely have a dynamic IP address you can use this service to point a domain to a dynamic ip address.

    Anyway i noticed another feature they had.
    You can get a free subdomain on one of there hosts:
    This is an example of one i setup: http://blackhattest.mooo.com

    If you go there you will notice it redirects to a clickbank product and cloaks the true URL with my free domain: http://blackhattest.mooo.com

    I thought this would be nice technique if you wanted to setup a quick domain with no website just to redirect it to a affiliate product.

    So heres how to do it:

    1. Go to: http://freedns.afraid.org and register.

    2. Login and click "Web Forward" on the left menu.

    3. The click on "Add a Web Forward"

    4. You will be presented with some options:

    Redirect From: Enter in the subdomain you want, example: hxxp://googlepayload.mooo.com
    Redirect To: Enter in the URL you want to redirect to (your clickbank hoplink to the product your selling)
    Cloak?: Tick it to cloak the URL!
    Page Title: (if cloaked): Enter in a descriptive page title of the page your redirecting to, eg: Google Payload or what ever product your redirecting to.

    Then click "Save"

    5. Thats it, just what about 15 minutes for the DNS records to update and your new Free URL: hxxp://googlepayload.mooo.com
    Will redirect to your clickbank hoplink and it will cloak the URL so your free domain stays in the address bar of the browser.

    I know you can just do this if you already own a domain or buy a domain, But if you just want to setup a quick free domain to cloak a URL this is a good option.
