Try Pronouncing this Domain Name

I didn't want to put the whole domain name in the title of this post due to the length of it.

Here is the domain name..

"llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwyll-llantysiliogogogoch.com"

Try saying it. If you want to hear it then click here.

This is an actual working domain name and "It is the World's Longest Single Word Domain Name." The domain was named after a town in North Wales. According to the website, it means "The church of St. Mary in the hollow of white hazel trees near the rapid whirlpool by St. Tysilio's of the red cave in Welsh."

You can even send an email from this site to somebody. You can read more about this domain name and also about the town by visiting to their website.

Please note that this is the longest domain name which is named after a town.

There is however another domain name that is longer than this one but is not a word. Its called
"abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzabcdefghijk.com"
