Worst 10 Domain Names

  1. Dec 21, 2007 #1
    I found this list and I could not keep myself from kneeling over. Note that these may not be suited for the weak-hearted, hence the domain names are in the same color as the background, although the motivation is not. Highlight to see.

    1. A site called ‘Who Represents‘ where you can find the name of the agent that represents a celebrity. Their domain name… whorepresents.com
    2. Experts Exchange, a knowledge base where programmers can exchange advice and views at expertsexchange.com
    3. Looking for a pen? Look no further than Pen Island at penisland.net
    4. Need a therapist? Try Therapist Finder at therapistfinder.com
    5. Then of course, there’s the Italian Power Generator company… powergenitalia.com
    6. And now, we have the Mole Station Native Nursery, based in New South Wales: molestationnursery.com
    7. If you’re looking for computer software, there’s always ipanywhere.com
    8. Welcome to the First Cumming Methodist Church. Their website is cummingfirst.com
    9. Then, of course, there’s these brainless art designers, and their whacky website: speedofart.com
    10. Want to holiday in Lake Tahoe? Try their brochure website at gotahoe.com

    Yes, I'm an 8-year-old when it comes to humor, what did you expect?

    Honorable Mention:

    Holiday Rental company in Spain - www.choosespain.com

    Via Grafix (CAD Software and Learning CDs) - www.viagrafix.com
    (At least until Viagra came onto the market. They changed their name to Learn2.)

    Teachers Talk online teaching community: - www.teacherstalk.com

    Winters Express local newspaper - www.wintersexpress.com

    IHA Vegas holiday rentals - www.ihavegas.com[/URL]
    (Evidently it's pretty serious, as their website is undergoing important maintenance.)

    Odds Extractor (online gambling resource) - [url]www.oddsextractor.com[/url]
    (Farming never looked so good. Of course, now the link just forwards you to the site with their new name - Bet Angel)

    Big Al's fish supplies - [url]www.bigalsonline.com[/url]

    Web One Internet service provider - [PLAIN]www.webone.com[/URL]

    And never, never start a business on the Cook Islands. Their country code (TLD) is .ck and they use .co for their commercial domains - [url]http://www.cinews.co.ck/[/url]

    It would have never have occurred to them. They had their company name (and domain name) well before Viagra came along. Viagra is a completely made up name (a definite benefit when it comes to trademarks - it's extremely difficult for a competitor to somehow incorporate the Viagra trademark into a new name), so Via Grafix should have been a pretty safe name.

    I wonder what would have happened if Via Grafix just changed their line of business instead changing their name (Pfizer Inc v. The Magic Islands
