I was reading a post from Hostgator this morning that gave tips on picking the domain name for your business. It had good suggestions, and if you’re at this point it’s worth taking a look. I also covered this subject a while back and go here to get more tips to help the domain selection process.
However, what inspired my post this morning (the one you’re reading) was Tip #5 in Hostgator’s helpful article. Just wanted to share. Hopefully this will give you a laugh, and also prepare you to not make this mistake. 🙂
Taken from Hostgator’s post:
Tip #5 – Avoid unintentional domain hilarity
One final caveat when it comes to choosing a domain name is to carefully review your final selection before hitting the “Register” button for any inadvertently inappropriate language that might pop up.
To see what I mean, consider the real-life URLs for the following legitimate company names:
- Pen Island – “www.penisland.net”
- IT Scrap – “www.itscrap.com”
- Who Represents – “www.whorepresents.com”
- Experts Exchange – “www.expertsexchange.com”
- Speed of Art – “www.speedofart.com”
Funny stuff! (unless one of these sites is yours!)
