Growing industry with local exact of 40,000+
New one to me and I've been doing this since the 90s...
I don't see the difference in this "domain" and using Biodiesel as a subdomain on any short tld to be honest.
I'd say reg fee, but I'm not sure what the reg fee is on a .uk.net, so I'm going for £0, unless you develop it & it becomes a success. If this does happen though, then I'm assuming that whoever owns uk.net can then charge you whatever they like as a renewal? Or maybe not.. I'm guessing here...
The name is a CentralNIC domain
Companies such as GAME used .uk.com before they aquired the .co.uk version.
Couple of sales I've seen include
Manchester.uk.net - $1245
Forex.uk.net - $6000
Out of interest, why didn't you go for Biodiesel.uk.com?
I don't own this domain - just enquiring about its worth however all extensions now seem to be taken including uk.com.
Pretty stiff reg fee for second level domain (subdomain). Don’t know about sales value. Seen some charities and groups on this type of domains. Keyword value should be equal to one of the subdomain though.
The problem with biodiesel is that it won't be sold over the internet, therefore you can't run a sales website on it and that limits the domain's value.
True, although from experience there is quite a growing market for biodiesel processers (to make biodiesel) which can be purchased over the internet.
Thanks, all feedback appreciated
Might be worth holding on to then ... it will certainly be a growing trend but probably still a few years away IMO. Just hope the processing kits are expensive ...
The processors are generally £1000+ and I know of affiliate schemes paying 5-10% commission if anyone wanted to develop on this name as a purchase or joint venture.
Looks like .uk.xxx names can rank well - the number 2 result for Google search for "ringtones" shows this too.
Separate names with a comma.
