    Default Website Domain names. Be Careful

    The top 10 unintentionally worst company URL

    Everyone knows that if you are going to operate a business in today’s
    world you need a domain name. It is advisable to look at the domain name selected as other see it and not just as you think it looks. Failure to do this may result in situations such as the following (legitimate) companies who deal in everyday humdrum products and services but clearly didn’t give their domain names enough consideration:

    1. A site called ‘Who Represents’ where you can find the name of the agent that represents a celebrity. Their domain name… wait for it…is

    www.whorepresents.com

    2. Experts Exchange, a knowledge base where programmers can exchange advice and views at
    www.expertsexchange.com

    3. Looking for a pen? Look no further than Pen Island at
    www.penisland.net

    4. Need a therapist? Try Therapist Finder at
    www.therapistfinder.com

    5. Then of course, there’s the Italian Power Generator company…
    www.powergenitalia.com

    6. And now, we have the Mole Station Native Nursery, based in New South Wales:
    www.molestationnursery.com

    7. If you’re looking for computer software, there’s always
    www.ipanywhere.com

    8. Welcome to the First Cumming Methodist Church. Their website is
    www.cummingfirst.com

    9. Then, of course, there’s these brainless art designers, and their
    whacky website:
    www.speedofart.com

    10. Want to holiday in Lake Tahoe? Try their brochure website at
    www.gotahoe.com
    Psychiatrists state 1 in 4 people has a mental illness.
    Look at three of your friends, if they are ok, your it.
