The Gmail Dot Trick is a method which lets you create multiple accounts using the same Gmail account using the same name. The trick is pretty well known and might be patched out but until then you can use it without the need to think unique email ID for each account.
The Gmail Dot Trick
Suppose I have an email ID “email@example.com”. Now, I can create a new ID “firstname.lastname@example.org” and it will be created without any problem. The best thing about this trick is that even though the website will consider these two IDs to be separate but the emails sent to “email@example.com” will appear in the original ID.
This trick can be used to create multiple accounts by inserting the dot at the different places. You could also insert multiple dots as well. It is a great way to create multiple IDs by using the same username (different in technical terms, though).

How does this Gmail DOT trick work?
Most of the websites consider a dot in the name to be a unique feature. eg: parth and par.th will be different for the website. On the other hand, Google considers parth and par.th to be the same and therefore the Gmail account associated with these IDs will be the same.

The Gmail Plus Trick
The Gmail “plus” trick is an alternative to the dot trick. It works exactly the same but has one difference. Instead of using a dot, i.e. Par.th you use a “+”. It means if my email ID is “firstname.lastname@example.org”. I could use “email@example.com”. It would be considered to be different by the website but Google will consider it the same.
So, if you liked this trick then definitely use it if you are tired of giving different email IDs each time you create an account.
