You always have to step back and look at things the way your customer would when you're in business or sales.

Case in point, these websites for real companies.

Note the unintended titles that an otherwise innocent business name creates:

Holiday in Lake Tahoe?:
www.gotahoe.com

Art Design: www.speedofart.com

The First Cumming Methodist Church: www.cummingfirst.com

Wales Moles Sanctuary: www.molestationnursery.com

Italian Power Generator company: www.powergenitalia.com

Looking for a pen? Try Pen Island at www.penisland.net

Experts Exchange: www.expertsexchange.com

And finally, a site to find celebrities' agents: www.whorepresents.com

You have to be careful when it comes to creating your online business image.
Are these big blunders?
Probably not.
But it does demonstrate how easy it is to lose your customer's focus with a poorly designed URL, brochure or sales letter.
