    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
    whoRepresents.com

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


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


    4. Need a therapist? Try Therapist Finder at


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

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


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


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


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


    10. Want to holiday in Lake Tahoe? Try their brochure website at

    Just goes to show what happens when you have a combination of words which simply MUST run together and (sometimes) people for whom English is a second language.

    Holy sh*t ! Was it the Pen Island's banner or did you find it on an other pen dealer's web site, Pisis ?

    It looks more like a bad prostitution network motto...
