    CreditCards#gb.com

    Hi guys,

    I know its just a subdomain but there were few sales of quality keywords in the past. And with such keyword I'll be happy to renew it until I'll get some decent offer. :cool:
    Any comments much appreciated

    Didnt even know there was a .gb.com when did this come about? do they rank at all in the uk?

    Im sure some daft end user would pay a few grand for it as its such a popular product.

    Card companies are all about the “brand “never heard of any corporations buying gb.com..? You could try and develop it but think you would be wasting your time

    I have no idea how they rank as this is the only one I own but there are quite a few in use, you can check it by typing "site:.gb.com" into google. I managed to find only two rather old sales, so if anyone knows of any other sales please post it here.

    I have a few of domains of this type. I believe it is only a subdomain of www.gb.com, so that kills off the market as it puts off serious domainers.

    Given the impact of the credit crunch, there is unlikely to be such a good market for this now either.

    If it was mine I would just put it up for sale somewhere now, because given the proliferation of extensions, I can't see the situation getting any more favourable.

    It is only a subdomain, yes. And it seems pretty much dead.. Have you had any offers for your gb.com's or know of any relatively recent sales?

    No, I could only find the sales you mentioned. FYI the names of this type I hold are:

    homeloan.uk.net
    carhire.uk.net

    I'm going to develop the carhire one, I'm not sure yet about the home loan one.

    All I'm saying is if you're not going to develop, I would put it up for sale quickly and not hold and hope.

    Thanks for the input.
    I don't think I will try to develop it as this sector is extremely competitive and I don't have the resources to promote the site. I've just listed it at Sedo on featured listings so we'll see how it goes :)

    Thanks namealot, I also managed to find the ones you mentioned - at dnsaleprice.com
    Well, it may not be the most popular extension ever, but it still should perform OK with a PPC campaign. I'm just not sure how it ranks but ranking sites in that sector is extremely difficult anyway..
