goarmy.com/for_parents

Bad URL

URL-aholic Ron Patrick spied this traitorous URL. I like the fact that the URL backs up the ad speaking directly to parents but methinks Parents.GoArmy.com would work much better. This URL loses the battle with the slash and the war with the underscore.

I know your not a fan of the / after the domain extension and I agree that it is not ideal.

but...

I have seen to many users type in www.Parents.GoArmy.com which would just give them a 404. Then they don't know what to type in.

I get this trouble with many of my clients and basecamp which uses UserName.Basecamp.com as the URL. Probably half my clients go to www.UserName.Basecamp.com and then get lost and call me.
