The top 10 unintentionally worst company URLs

Netflix, Inc.

Attn: Entrepreneurs
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

But wait! There’s more!: Independent Sources’ list of unnecessary redundancies repeated more than once. If that’s not enough, see 100 Things you do not want to hear from your System Administrator! We have other posts about clueless businesses here. And
“Oh no! Mom and Dad are on MySpace again!”

For better or worse, these have been some of our most popular stories (click on the photo):

tip: story above involes a nude gothic dancer and a severed hand.



Hat tip: Pat D. … the original source seems to be grupthink.


This just in. Look who’s the latest entrant in the single-car-crash derby…

The General finds someone who thinks that the events of the Middle East are occurring because God wants to cancel an Israeli gay pride event.

    It’s funny how a URL can be misconstrued.

    Because I create robots it naturally occured to me that the best way to describe what I do in my URL was to call my website Robot Art. However, once in a while I’ll get the odd email from a wayward surfer searching for Robo Tart which, I’m told is something of a mechanical call girl.
