It is already an established fact that picking a domain name is one of the key decisions any blogger will make in starting their blog, and yes one can make a mistake in picking a domain name.

From the history of domain names, I have decided to put together a list of domain names gone wrong, that are real funny, but will solidify the fact that domain names should be carefully and skillfully chose.

NB: Some of these sites have changed their domain names, so if you want to visit any of these sites, you might get redirected. Others have been abandoned, bottom line; have a little laugh and learn.

1. Itscrap.com

This reads its-crap, but they actually meant IT-Scrap

 

2. Choosespain.com

I’m sure you see chooses-pain, but they were only trying to tell you to Choose-Spain

3. Childrenswear.co.uk

Oh no, it is not what you read, it is children’s-wear.

 

 

4. Penisland.net

You really need to stop thinking that way and see things from a different perspective. That is pen-island.net.

5. Amigonefuneralhome.com

I’m definitely not gone, they however have a business named amigone-funeral-home.

6. Americanscrapmetal.com

American metals are not crap, they were talking about american-scrap-metal.

The one i’ll building? Something’s off, oh! The-O’neill-Building.

Speedo fart or speed-of-art

9. Www.llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwyll-llantysiliogogogoch.com

This right here is the longest domain name, and the name of a Welsh town. Were you able to pronounce that? Cos I wasn’t.

10. Www.80shits.com

What??? Who wants to look at that, we’d rather go for 80’s-hits.

11. Analemma.org

They say it’s Analemma and not what your mind is thinking.

12. Bendover.com

Did you guess it right? It’s your man Ben-Dover.

38. Auctionshit.com

No, they don’t auction shit. This is an ebay competition site that wanted to name the name Auction Hits, but got what you read.

39. Mammotherection.com

Who cares to see what that looks like? These guys actually run a scaffold company where they erect and dismantle scaffolds. Apparently they thought having a mammoth as their signa was a good idea.

40. Webone.com

So there you have it. With this, I hope you take picking your domain name seriously, possibly have someone pronounce it before finally purchasing it.

I hope you enjoyed reading this post. Now go ahead and share to educate and make your friends laugh.
