5hourenergy.com

Bad URL

Don't mind the lower-case "h" following the 5 becase "5Hour" might not have lined up right but can't forgive the lower-case "e." You may think I'm just being a stickler here and that anyone can figure out the URL because it's the brand name but the brand name has a hyphen so people already have to think a little to figure out if there's a hyphen in the URL. You don't want to make people think any more than they have to. These guys should've taken their own, er... medicine and used some uppers.

I could not agree more. This is another prime example of how we as domainers need to educate the business world.

A b2b seminar on "Selling Online" by some of our true businessmen would be great (and cashflow well with the right promo and speakers).

Maybe I will put something like that together. As domainers we spend to much time exchanging names for cash with one another rather then educating our potential clients and bringing in new money...

Pretty interesting. However, don't think the lower case "e" is such a big deal but if I were typing in the url for the brand, chance are I would replicate the spelling on the bottle. To me, the hyphen missing is the bigger glitch here.
