1-800-Wood-Floors.con

Bad URL

Josh Allen spotted this URL in the city that never sleeps. And it's sure to keep people up at night wondering what the URL actually is. Fortunately, these guys own both 1-800-Wood-Floors.com and 1800WoodFloors.com. The problem is the URL it most resembles is 1.800.Wood.Floors.com. And that sure won't work. Thumbs down for this unpolished URL.

UPDATE 2/2/08 - thanks to this post's commentors for pointing out that I missed the most obvious issue with this URL... it says .con not .com! BRUTAL!

But do they also own 1800WoodFloors.con? No, the .con is not a typo in my text, but it certainly is an awful typo to make on such a big window decal!

I'm not sure how i feel about 1-800 number URLs, but the presentation of this could be better especially that typo...but good on them for registering with and without hyphens, at least.

Hah! I didn't even catch the typo. Good eye guys. Updating my post now.
