Funny website addresses revealed in new book

275x250.jpgAn author has spent the past four years scouring the internet for the world's most unintentionally funny URL website addresses.

Andy Geldman has now compiled his results, which include a music site called mp3shits.com and a wine site ipwine.com in his latest book.

'Slurls: They Called Their Website What?' features over 100 amusing URLs - normally created when businesses did not consider the impact of removing spaces from their name.

For example, Who Represents, can't have noticed the other meaning whorepresents.com might have. Nor can programmers site Experts Exchange, or expertsexchange.com

In odd news we know exactly how easily this can be done… we almost used News Hits, or newshits.com before we settled on NewsLite.
Andy said: "With over a hundred million websites already registered it's extremely unlikely that a business will get their first choice of address.

"In fact, they'll be lucky to get their second, third or even hundredth choice. There have always been unintentionally funny names, but the internet takes it to a whole new level. It's all because you can't have a space in your URL.

"A business called IT Scrap is fine in the real world but not so great online with itscrap.com!"
