I’m working on some instructions on choosing a domain name and came across these really really bad Domain Names.
All of these are companies/organizations that didn’t spend quite enough time considering how their online names might appear – and be misread…
- Who Represents is where you can find the name of the agent that represents any celebrity. Their Web site is www.whorepresents.com
- And the designers at Speed of Art await you at their wacky Web site, www.speedofart.com
- A holiday rentals company in Spain is called Choose Spain. Hopefully the vacation won’t be a painful experience www.choosespain.com
- achersTalk: A community for teachers and student to discuss all areas of teaching… Even how to stalk teachers? www.TeacherStalk.com
- The small town Winters’ local newspaper is called Winters Express and can be read online at www.WinterSexPress.com
- If you offer a scaffold erection/dismantle service, maybe you shouldn’t have a mammoth as your mascot and call your company Mammoth Erection www.MammothErection.com
- The kids might look nice in their Childrens’ Wear, but remember www.ChildrenSwear.co.uk
- If you’re known as Big Al, why not call your online fish supplies store for Big Al’s Online? www.BiGalsOnline.com
- Don’t start a business in Cook Islands… Given that their TLD is .ck and they use .co for commercial domains, you end up with www.budget.Co.ck
- Looking for a pen? Look no further than Pen Island at www.penisland.net
- Need a therapist? Try Therapist Finder at www.therapistfinder.com
Here area few more from companies / organizations that aparently figured it out….
- There’s the Italian Power Generator company, www.powergenitalia.com (Under Construction Page)
- And don’t forget the Mole Station Native Nursery in New South Wales, www.molestationnursery.com (Parked)
- If you’re looking for IP computer software, there?s always www.ipanywhere.com (Parked)
- Experts Exchange is a knowledge base where programmers can exchange Advice and views at www.expertsexchange.com (no Longer Live)
- The First Cumming Methodist Church Web site is www.cummingfirst.com (No Longer in Use by the Church)
Know another website with an unfortunate name, or even an acronym that could have been avoided, comment with your own suggestions and we will add them to the list.
Here’s one to get the ball rolling – This was a proposed ministry for youg women at a local church. “Single Ladies Under Thirty” = SLUT
