    Hi.

    Just found a foreign city domain available in .org.uk but are they worth registering with the purpose of reselling?

    Thanks.

    If it's a tourist destination, then most definitely... Flights, hotels, attractions etc.

    Just reg'd LosAngeles.org.uk on the drop earlier in the week - pretty major destination - Hollywood,Disneyland etc.

    All depends on the city of course, whether it's a popular tourist destination etc, but imo i'd say it would be one for development rather than resale.

    I've never heard of the city before so I'm guessing it's not a popular tourist destination. Checked Wikipedia but it doesn't explicitly say whether it is or not. Based on exact UK searches for the city, which is 6600, it is worth buying to resell?

    Based on the fact that you've never heard of it, i'd say the resale potential would be quite low.
