There were quite a few bad domain names submitted in the Crappiest Domain Name contest I held on my blog. I selected the 5 worst names (in my opinion), and you guys voted for the loser… ahem… the winner.
Well over 200 votes were submitted, and the winning domain name was selected by a narrow 3 votes. The domain name that received the most votes for crappiest domain name was Free-Dialup-ISP-Internet-Access-Provider.com.
I don’t disagree with the results. Not only does the domain name have 5 hyphens (I don’t even like domain names with a single hyphen), but there don’t appear to be any monthly searches for the term according to the Google Adwords Keyword Tool. Put simply, someone could build the #1 ranking domain name for this term and not receive a single visit (family and friends aside).
It can be tough to get started in the domain business, and everyone probably owns domain names they aren’t proud to own. Domain investors should use these bad buys as a learning experience.
As for what my plan is for this domain name. I plan to let this name expire as soon as possible, with the hopes that somebody else doesn’t make this same mistake!
Here are the results of the votiing:
