The Worst Domain Names Ever:
Unintentionally Funny URL that Should Never Change

Picking the right domain name can be as stressful as choosing a name for your firstborn child: You’ve looked through list after list of names, but none of them are right for that sweet little rosy-cheeked cherub staring back at you.

When parents start getting creative is when we start seeing some of the more … interesting names on birth certificates (refer to all those crazy celebrity love children: Gwyneth Paltrow’s daughter Apple, Michael Jackson’s son Blanket, Tom Cruise’s daughter Suri …).

But when people get creative with their domain names, you get slurls: unintentionally funny URLs, or just plain bad URLs. Here’s a list of our favorite courageous people, “parents” if you will, who had the right level of spirit and ingenuity naming their domain, but didn’t realize just how creative they had been.

Whorings.com


“Who Rings” is an online caller ID service: just type in the number of whoever just called you and, voila, you have the location of where they called from.

And as it turns out, all those calls are coming from the Warehouse District’s street corners.

Publishit.com


Unfortunately this domain is no longer available, but for a good while, they probably published just about anything you sent them.

Wombeat.com


Word of Mouth Beat: Your online yellow pages for anything that spreads by word of mouth. Or it’s WombEat.com, for when you’re feeling hungry and need a double dose of protein in your diet.

Americanscrapmetal.com


Be a good American and recycle some of that metal you crapped out the other day.

Lesbocages.com


Les Bocages is French for “The Groves.” In this case, it’s the name of a high-end gardening service for your multi-million dollar home. In a much more vibrant world, it’s LesboCages.com, your one-stop-shop for lesbians locked inside human-sized bird cages. Hey, how else is that eccentric millionaire going to entertain his guests?

Oldmanshaven.com


Looking for a nice cabin to rent out in the woods? Come on down to Old Man’s Haven for some fine wood homes! Or come to OldManShaven.com, where we will tie up and shave an old man for your viewing pleasure, in a cabin, deep in the woods.

If that doesn’t tickle your fancy, why not try your luck at achildshaven.com?

Ipwine.com


If you’re looking for a vineyard that “offers an atmosphere of relaxation…” then you’ve come to the right place. Ingleside Vineyards: The wine comes in, the wine comes out.

Lumbermansexchange.com


We are proud of your courageous decision, Lumberjack buddy, and we commend you on going through with it. Also, “TIMBER!!!!!” (*Unfortunately they are now LBXonline.com)

Amigonefuneralhome.com


And last, but certainly not least, Amigone Funeral Homes. A place where the dead can contemplate if they’re really dead or not.

And there you have it: Parents so excited with their new domain names, they took it one level farther than they intended. So if you’re out there on the great frontier known as the web, look out for those slurls, young traveler. If you find one, send it our way.

    I found another to add to the list:

    It’s a website for those in Hollywood that want to know who represents who. The URL is a fitting commentary on Hollywood:

    whorepresents.com

    therapistlocator.net …for when you need to find a therapist. Or a rapist.

    kidsexchange.net

    Children just grow up so fast these days.

    lesbocages.com is hilarious. The picture of the smiling dude standing next to the tree stump on the contact link made it even better. And he’s even got the first result on Google for Lesbo Cages. Maybe I’ll start lesbocages.net and – well, you know what I’m gonna do with that. And it doesn’t have anything to do with Bocages.

    Isn’t the classic of this genre penisland.net?

  • Clam said:

    My favorite is a local restaurant in Phila called Han Dynasty. Everyone now refers to the place as HandyNasty
    The owner realized this afterwards and even made light of it by claiming that before he immigrated to America, he made his fortune as a pr*nstar in Hong Kong and his inspiration for the Restuarant name came from on of his movies.

  • Jason said:

    The original email I received way back in the day had some really great ones but only one in particular stood out and made me crack up!

    Penisland.com

    Pen Island Co.

    I wonder how long it took them to notice? LOL
