How to make your web address very hard to use.

How to make your web address very hard to use.
(Apologies if you own one of these already.)

1. Have the word 'dot' in the address.

Examples:
www.dot.com
www.nodot.here.com
wwwdotcool.com

2. Use any existing top level domain inside your domain.

Examples:
www.dotcom.com
allthe.news-dot-info.com
info.uk.travel-uk.uk.com

3. Use numerals in place of words.

Examples:
number1site.com
way2go.com
the-10der-steak.com

4. Use words in place of numerals.

Examples:
toogirlswoncup.com
forguyspizza.com
eightwontoo.com

5. Messing with the 'www' redirect convention.

Examples:
ww.it-is-two-words.com
okready.www.thedomain.com

6. Using any other common domain in your domain.

Examples:
google.my-site.com
seanet.com
xkcd.stillsucks.com

7. Anything that might make it hard to tell someone the URL over the phone.

Examples:
this.domain.fullstopwonword.com
itsspelledlikethefruit.bannanna.com
nonono.dot.thatistwodots.com
www.doyouhavethemoneyyouoweme.noreally.com
quote.endquote.com
my-boss-just-walked-in-bye.com
ww.waitstartover.www.literallytwodoubleyous.com

8. Double entendre domains.

expertsexchange.com
penismightierthansword.com
whoreloads.com

9. Your full name. Mostly because you can't think of anything clever for your email address.

www.JohnLewis.com
Jane.Doe.com
JohnSmith.com

10. Never direct www.domainname.com and domainname.com to two different web pages. No examples. Ever. No, seriously, I'll kill you.

um, slashdot?

but yeah i spose lots of ways to fud w ppl. also not using .com always fucks with people too.
I like .org as an extension because when you spell it it sounds kindof like orgy and then people do a double take.
