Question: Funniest Misspellings?

Happy Monday! We’re feeling a little inquisitive again, and this time we’d like to hear about some of the funniest misspelled domains you’ve registered.

Does this sound familiar? You think of an awesome domain name, you find that it is still available, and with the swiftness of a fox you push that checkout button…only to find out that “elite” does not in fact have two “L’s” in it.

Unfortunately this happens to the best of us. We want to know what some of your funniest misspellings have been, and just like last time we’ll give out $25 in account credit to a random commenter. So bring on the comments!

This is always the problem. Domain names should be writted with bigger font. I often see domains like fnupics.com (FunPics) or lamElite.com (LameElite). Kinda anagrams or…?

I never bought a misspelled domain name, but funny thing I remember is foofle.com (letter F is next to letter G)… It redirects to google.com 😉

You can see that there are also domains starting Gogle.com continuing to Gooooooooooogle.com (11x “o”). 🙂

I once accidentally purchased a “.in” with the intention of registering a “.im”
It was for by client, so $3.99 out of my pocket, not a huge deal.

I was going to buy bollymp3.com and almost ended up in buying bollump3.com. Luckily I noticed this before I make payment and ended up in not buying any domain for this as bollymp3.com was already taken.

Yes 🙂 Insted of asking someone 'Do you Google?' you can ask 'Do you Foofle?' – I bet that most of visitors might think that you're asking them smth related to censored things 🙂

I recently registered Saxaphone.Co and didn't notice my misspelling until after registration. It gets 16% of the exact searches that the proper spelling gets, but that's still over 60k searches. I'm cool with it. 🙂 And, yes, it is for sale.
