Surely the first step would be to choose a memorable company name or web domain name through which to launch & further promote the business..

All of the below are legitimate companies who didn't perhaps spend quite enough time considering how their online names might appear!

These, sadly, are not made up:

'Who Represents' is where you can find the name of the agent that represents any celebrity. Their Web site is:

'Experts Exchange' is a knowledge base where programmers can exchange advice and views at:

Looking for a great pen?
Look no further than 'Pen Island.' It can be found at:

In need of a therapist? Try 'Therapist Finder' at:

And the designers at 'Speed of Art' await you at their wacky web site:

Thanks Ruth

Our mantra is that business should be fun..

Our business lives consume much of our time and so if you can enjoy what you do and can inject a touch of humour it surely makes the workplace a touch more affable & genial…

Hats off Simply-Fone.

I have a few domains registered and have always played safe by using hypens. Lots of people don't like them but I think they avoid confusion. Hence;
