    Hey guys, new to this forum.

    Just wondered if anyone thought any of these domains are worth anything more than the reg fee?

    digitalcameraworld.co.uk
    gametube.co.uk
    gimli.co.uk
    jackpothero.co.uk
    lionbar.co.uk
    looplife.co.uk
    lowloan.co.uk
    pangu.co.uk
    tmob.co.uk
    vapetank.co.uk

    Cheers!

    digitalcameraworld.co.uk - There's already a magazine of this name, there may be a trademark. There may be some value here but trademark could be an issue.

    gametube.co.uk - This is a good domain.

    gimli.co.uk - Possible brandable. Await offers.

    jackpothero.co.uk - I don't promote gambling, but this is an OK name, but lots of alternatives possible so that limits value.

    lionbar.co.uk - Trademark likely.

    looplife.co.uk - Nice name for a beats site, not particularly valuable from domain perspective.

    lowloan.co.uk - OK, but I don't promote loans, so I'll leave it at that.

    pangu.co.uk - Weak brandable.

    tmob.co.uk - Average brandable which benefits from being 4-letters, i.e. quite short. Nothing special.

    vapetank.co.uk - Smoking/vaping is bad for you! No comment.

    lionbar.co.uk - trademark issues
    tmob.co.uk - too similar to t-mobile, trademark issues

    The rest, not worth registering imo

    There's no Trademark issues with the domain itself. For example, it could be used as an Acronym. It would only be if in using the domain you claimed some sort of association with T-Mobile that you might have issues.

    Yep, that's the point, the name would lend itself to a mobile based service, but there in would lie the problem. For anything else it should be fine, but on that basis, isn't worth anything unless the owner can find a corporate end user using those initials.

    Thanks for the replies guys!

    Yeah as a photographer myself I couldn’t resist in purchasing it, I contacted the magazine to see if they would be interested in purchasing but they never replied.

    I registered it when Nestle dropped it, was kind of expecting an email from them about it but I haven’t heard anything so far.

    With the tmob.co.uk there is no exact match registered trademarks on IPO which I though there would be.
    EDIT: There doesn't appear to be anything related to Lionbar on the IPO either!

    There aren't any potential buyers, so you're wasting your time with the names just because they *feel* valuable.
