Automatic sign-up and sign-in between different domains without cookies?

    I'm trying to find a website that does the following:
    1. Signs you up to a second site under a different primary domain (i.e.
    as a result of a checkout or something). The username and password may
    be automatically generated.
    2. Signs on for you and redirects you to the second site without the
    need of you signing up or signing in

    I can't find an example of such a site. Do you know any?

    Thanks,
    Jimmy

    its possible using cURL, then parsing email using a script, then using
    cURL again to sonfirm the sign-up,
    the actual process of signing-in to this newly signed-up for service
    coul then be acomplished using
    a) the API for that service (the way meebo does it)
    b) a proxy script, (that handles the cookies for the servie you are now
    newly signed-up for)

    not much to do with javascript, because the "no-cookies" specification
    means that you will have to handle all that logic on the serverside
    script.

    sadly I don't, probably because it would be open to so much abuse, but
    it wouldnt be toooo hard to code yourself if you have time, and a
    specific need site in question.

    There are many sites which use captchas to try to prevent automated
    sign-up, so any site that offers sign-up/on by proxy will probably be
    using a legal API to the third party site.

    You however if you had one particular site in question could cludge
    together some php so sign-up/on in an hour or so. cURL hangles cookies
    (the manual pages show how easy it is) as well as SSL connections.
    Storing the cookies means you can continue to access the site while
    filling the sign-up form out and posting it. Provided the target site
    is predictable - and doesnt throw up a random captcha - you then just
    have to open a mailbox using pop, - or even easier if you have
    redirected the sign-up email to a "no-hassle" free email service like
    mailinator - you just goto the mailinator URL and parse the resulting
    html for an embedded URL in the email body and then use it to
    authenticate. You job is almost done then, and the lsat remaining piece
    is to follow the redirect, saving the cookies using cURL and then you
    can simply parse the resulting page, base64 encpding the urls in the
    css/js and html pushing them through another cookieless domain, phproxy
    does this fairly well, modding the code would give you better css
    support.


    sorry not to give you the answer you wanted, but I just dont know of
    any site which offers this "as a service"

    take care, m
