The most poular Sri Lankan channel
From Sri Lanka
Bad web design Sri Lanka

Wow, this website is amazing. The homepage is a collection of animated GIFs in awful colors and that's about it. Sri Lanka rules when it comes to ugly websites. Bad web design seems to be the standard in over there.

Enough blinking and neon colors to give you a seizure. You cannot focus on anything on this website because there are always a thousand other things screaming for your attention. And absolutely no way to distinguish between content and advertisements. This is a real ugly mess and if people from Sri Lanka find this kind of website normal, then the cultural divide between someone from the west and someone from Sri Lanka when it comes to websites is enormous. Cannot be bridged. Not ever. Two different worlds. They should have their own internet. Really. No doubt about it to us, this website should deserve the title of worst website ever.

The people behind this dreadful website seem to have more sites like it. Check out www.muthuvision.tv for instance.

2 Youth Duo

8.4
We have SOULutions
Worst websites in the world: Youth Duo

Jamie Lin, self proclaimed Feng Shui expert, has got lots of ugly websites, but the crown jewel in her business empire is youthduo.com, a more recent website. Youthduo.com is an extremely ugly website that offers 'Age-Reversing SkinCARE solutions'. You have to see it to believe it. Apparently you have to take some magical drops and wear a 'Turkey NeckLESS'. There is an affiliate commission to be won if you find other poor souls that enter this program.

Check out the fascinating rotating banner on the homepage and be prepared to feel a little sick.

181 likes on Facebook. Business is booming. But unfortunately my gut feeling tells me Jamie is able to make a living with only a handful of clients.

3 Minnick Roofing

8.0
using Comic Sans since 1999
Worst websites ever: Minnick Roofing, California

Minnick Roofing is a California based roofing company with a website that dates back to 1999. Designed (or better: constructed) with Frontpage 4 it uses Comic Sans as its main font, a brave choice. We also like the mission statement: Emergency Repair, Rain or Shine, with a nice little rainbow.

Other features of bad web design. A tiny navigation at the bottom of the page. Pages are very small, with the exception of some pages where the text covers the full width of the screen. Not a nice combination of page layouts that. A mix of font sizes with a font size of 1 (Comic Sans) for the smallest text which is impossible to read. Tiny images with too much JPEG compression.

4 Myers Horse Farms

7.9
a limited supply of frozen semen available for a $3500 stud fee
Ugliest site in the world: Myers Horse Farms

Zipschocolatechip.com is the website of Myers Horse Farms. Specialized in horse breeding and chocolate cookies. A unique website by unique people. The design of this website is linked to its content: a strange mix of unrelated things all thrown together with the main theme being chocolate cookies. Of course: horses are often brown, same as chocolate cookies. Yes, now I can see the link between it all. Also great: the nostalgic look of the images. There's a creepy quality to them.

Some of the amazing features of this site. Floating navigational images (who ever thought that was a good idea?). 'Games' (that no longer work). A recipe for chocolate cookies (hence the repeating background images of faded out cookies).

If you like this site, also check out http://chipshotchocolate.com, where you can find more of the same horse and cookie madness.

5 Dogetech Group

From Taiwan
Bad flash web design Dogetech

Dogetech Group is a company in Taiwan that manufactures Textile Machines. And they have a terrible flash website. Really awful. This website is a real find. As bad websites go, this is on a level of its own. Some horrible flash design. The about page is a horrible mess and completely unreadable. The site is too small for todays screen sizes and is butt ugly.

But the real winner on this site is the flash intro. If you can, you really should enable flash on this site and listen to the intro music. Put it really loud to let it immerse you completely. But watch out if you're an epileptic, the flashing lights could give you a seizure. No, really, watch out.

6 Modern Sky Festival Helsinki

7.5
Go to the website
From Finland
Bad web design: Helsinki Festival

A website for a music festival in Helsinki, Finland. A recent website from 2016. An overcrowded website with one of the worst navigational systems we have ever encountered. An attempt at being modern and hip, but ultimately resulting in a terrible user experience. The rotating navigation on the left is really annoying because it diverts your attention from the content, which in itself is already really hard to find. Some terrible contrast issues as well. This site gives me a terrible headache.

Modernskyfestivalhki.com is a real ball breaker. Visit it and be prepared to be annoyed.

Don't make me think!
And don't give me a headache!

7 Heart for Listening

7.4
each page a website on its own
Ugliest websites in the world: heartforlistening.com

Heartforlistening.com is the official website of the Thede Family Center for Autism and Neurodevelopmental Disorders in Colorado Springs. As it says on the homepage: "We believe that autism and similar conditions affect the entire family, so we are dedicated to helping the entire family." They also seem to believe that a website can be whatever you would like it to be. And that's true in a way. You can do whatever you like with your website, but if that is a good idea is something completely different altogether.

You see, you might like ugly images of wiry little men that bounce around on a page, but it is entirely possible that the visitors of your site don't like them. And so on, and so on.

Check out this site, you won't be disappointed. Every page is a treat onto itself.

8 Keralauae.com

7.4
Useful links for Indians
From India

Keralauae.com is a website for Indian expats living in the Arabian Gulf. Why any Indian living over there would want to visit this awful website I really couldn't tell. Maybe if you want to look at some ads and unreadable text or if you want to play a guessing game like 'where is the navigation?,  and where would that navigation lead to?'. Not very clear that last one. Some bad, bad web design, something Indian websites often excel in.

Also, I think this site was designed by someone who is color blind. I don't have another explanation for the awful color combinations on Keralauae.com. Every page has its own ugly color and custom ugly color combinations. There is some consistency in that. Faut le faire.

9 Pacific Northwest X-ray Inc.

7.1
This web site is our catalog! No printed catalog is available.
Ugliest websites ever - pnwx.com

Pacific Northwest X-ray Inc., you have got to love that name, sells X-Ray related accessories, parts, supplies, and equipment. And, I'm taking a wild guess here, mainly in the Pacific Northwest region. They have a glorious website with a glorious name pnwx.com. It's a four letter .com name, yes, but that's about it. X-ray equals rays equals waves, et voila, we have an idea for a background image. What the neon like colors have to do with x-rays I am not so sure.

I don't understand why you would show your main navigation bar (those tiny, unreadable links you see on most pages) on almost every page, except the homepage. Granted, it's almost unusable, but still. Why not the homepage? I mean, this is deliberate so someone, somewhere must have thought about a reason for doing so. If that someone ever comes to visit this site, please leave a comment explaining why you did that. I really would like to know.

This web site is our catalog! No printed catalog is available. Really? Do you really think that's a good idea? I think a small redesign of this site could, let me guess, double the earnings. Tripple?

10 Comme des Garçons

6.8
Wear your freedom
From Japan
Bad webdesign Japan: Comme des garcons

A site submitted by Daniel. Why does he think this is a bad web site? "Pretty much speaks for itself. The actual website doesn't load, until you click the link on the main page 3 times, for some reason and trust me, you'll wish you hadn't. This is quite possibly the worst website ever made.  I'm absolutely speechless."

The first three pages of the site actually consist of three slightly different images, each 2000 pixels wide. A few of the elements of bad web design from this site. Mystery meat navigation that causes irritation because you revisit pages (empty pages at that) that you already have seen. If you're looking for a store you have to be lucky to find it (bottom left black dots). If you are really unlucky you are back at the first page and your journey can begin once again. Almost all text is embedded in images, which makes this site an SEO disaster.

The main element of bad web design for this luxury brand? A website has to provide answers for the questions visitors have. Comme-des-garcons.com only provides more questions. The site is basically a trap for visitors, a maze. Most of the images on the site are 'hip', the site itself certainly is not. Technically, it's an old fashioned site. Very simple html with clickable images, that is about it. My guess is that this was made at least five to six years ago.
