When domain names go bad


Apologies if you've already seen this but I came across it earlier and couldn't believe my eyes.

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 others will 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 are these art designers, and their website:
www.speedofart.com

10. Want to holiday in Lake Tahoe? Try their brochure website at:
www.gotahoe.com
