List of amusing web address gaffes revealedJul 21, 4:54 pm
London, July 21 (ANI): A list of unintentionally funny website addresses, which often interpret differently on the web and redirect to a different site, have been revealed.The list compiled by Siteopia, a domain registration service revealed a number of web addresses, including PotsofArt.com, which looks as if it says potsofart.com, while ExpertsExchange.com, which is often mistakenly read as ExpertSexChange.com.Other amusing sites include ChooseSpain.com, which when misread looks like ChoosesPain.com and Actionpaintballsac.com, which is a website for an action paint ball games site."The value of a name has never been more important in a world where everyone is seeking to be seen or heard," The Telegraph quoted a spokesman for Siteopia, as saying."Taking time to think through all aspects and interpretations is crucial to the success of any brand. Of course a name needs to be memorable, but it's always worth considering the connotations it throws up," he added.The spokeman said that in many cases, a misreading or funny interpretation actually gets more attention than the organisation intended, "which isn't always a bad thing.""Online visibility is more crucial than ever today and it all starts with the right name. It's worth considering how a name changes when read as a domain as you may be giving out messages you hadn't intended to," the spokesman said.The researchers also discovered a couple of the longest domain addresses ever registered, which were 'do websitesneedtolookexactlythesameineverybrowser.com' and 'thelongestdomainnameintheworldandthensomeandthensomemoreandmor'.
