I've recently expanded my business (next step world domination) and I'm in the process of creating a website. Here is some of the crazy shit I've encountered on my journey.
You may use Google Sites to create websites for your business or to promote your products or services, unless you are in Cuba, Iran, or Sudan.
I did a double take at that part, it's rather...specific, particularly since the site agreement if for British Businesses only.
Wiki chose to inform me that "As of 2011, the most expensive domain name sales on record were: Sex.com for $13 million in October 2010" - Gee thanks wiki I really Needed to know that.
And then in choosing my domain name I was given this HILARIOUS advice.
Intercapping (Adding capital letters to make words stand out) is often used to emphasize the meaning of a domain name. However, DNS names are case-insensitive, and some names may be misinterpreted in certain uses of capitalization, creating slurs.
This is where it gets good
For example: Who Represents, a database of artists and agents, chose whorepresents.com, which can be misread as whore presents. Similarly, a therapists' network is named TherapistFinder.com. (The Rapist Finder) In such situations, the proper meaning may be clarified by use of hyphens in the domain name. For instance, Experts Exchange, a programmers' discussion site, for a long time used the name expertsexchange.com, but ultimately changed the name to experts-exchange.com.
I've taken from this experience only the knowledge that internet is fun...and kinda crazy, that Sex.com is out of my price range and that if I want success, I shouldn't inter-cap and I should stay away from Cuba, Sudan & Iran.
Here is a gift for getting through this post, I am going to show you an ACTUAL PICTURE of THE INTERNET!!!
And for those of you who may not know why this is a picture of the internet or may have never heard of the I.T Crowd I will leave you with an even more confusing quote.
Jen: "With all due respect John, I am the head of IT and I have it on good authority. If you type "Google" into Google, you can break the Internet. So please, no one try it, even for a joke. (the executives laugh) It's not a laughing matter. You can break-the-Internet."
