Top 10 Most Unintentionally Inappropriate Website URLs

Creating a domain name for a website is a very simple and creative thing to do. It’s always amazing to have a catchy slogan and name that will help sell your products.

However, these particular companies did not think it through, and have ended up with some of the most disastrous results.
The Top Ten

What it's actually called: Pen Island.

This seems intentional. It's a business name for selling pens. Adding "Island" after "Pen" in the domain name makes it sound wrong. How could they possibly mess that up?

This is enough to make me double-check my website links before finalizing them. I don't want to end up with a URL name like this.

It's called Penis Land. It's probably a porn site with images of male genitalia or sex toys.


What it's actually called: Go Tahoe.

This website helps people find vacations in a place called Lake Tahoe.

This also seems rather intentional. I don't understand how you could mess it up. At least call it "Go Lake Tahoe."


What it's actually called: Kids Exchange.

Don't worry. It's definitely not what you think. This website is used to exchange, buy, and sell children's products like toys.


What it's actually called: Speed of Art.

This website is mainly for viewing art, and that's pretty much it.

Here's advice for anyone making a domain name: don't include the word "art" after an "F."

I bet there's someone out there who has a speedo fart kink.


What it's actually called: IT Scrap.

This website is focused on selling scrap IT products like computers and other digital technologies. However, using a domain like "itscrap" isn't the best way to promote your business model!


What it's actually called: Mole Station Nursery.

Located in a place called "Mole River" in Australia, this nursery had one of the most disturbing domain names in history. Luckily, the administrators and CEO managed to change the domain name to simply "Mole River."


What it's actually called: Powergen Italia.

Powergen is an electric company used for installing renewable energy equipment like solar panels and microgrids. The CEO of Powergen thought it was a good idea to combine the company name with the country of origin, Italy, but this obviously wasn't well thought out, and the result was a complete disaster.


What it's actually called: NY Canal.

This resource helps you find information on some of the most beautiful canals in New York State.

Remember, this is referring to the state, not New York City.


What it's actually called: American Scrap Metal.

This website provides information on recycling scrap metal. It's definitely not about using metal for something else.


What it's actually called: LA Drape.

This company, based in Los Angeles, is similar to Trivago as it helps you find vacation spots and hotels in your preferred destination. Although the website is lighthearted, the domain name comes across as dark.

The Contenders

It honestly wouldn't surprise me if some musicians refer to their guitars as he or she.
