DebtConsolidation.co.uk is showing on sedo as sold - £14,000
Very good news Laura, thanks for sharing
There's something very odd going on with Sedo reported prices.
debtconsolidating.co.uk available from Nominet for £5
Not as good, but not 3000 times worse.
Surely that's not really the point? Why should a company able to afford the relatively minor outlay (on a commercial scale, it's minor, comparable to a magazine ad or two) for the very best name in their niche market/industry settle for a poor also-ran?
You have to put on a business hat when judging these kinds of sales. For an individual, the sale price may represent a lot of money (though I know many people for whom it would hardly elicit a flicker of interest) but from a business perspective it's a drop in the bucket for many companies.
In fact, it looks pretty cheap when looking at the Overture search and bid price stats, and considering debt consolidation is one of THE hottest industries on the web!
They might even get a few domainers trying to reign in their finances!!
yep very nice sale
it proves .co.uk names are going up
Yes the sale of DebtConsolidation.co.uk for 14000GBP does certainly reflect the growing importance of the .co.uk TLD and we predict that this situation can only improve. Although at the moment I would say that.co.uk's still represent the best bargains in market at the moment
For up to date information on Sedo's most recent .co.uk sales see the Domain Name Sales on AD.
Unfortunately the minimum fee issue surrounding .co.uk sales still remains unresolved - please rest assured that this will be one of our highest priorities in future discussions with Nominet.
I hope you all have a great weekend!
I would certainly agree with that!
What has "future discussions with Nominet" got to do with your fee structure? There's no difference in your work load if you sell either a .com or .co.uk as the buyer and seller do all the donkey work, and yet one is twice the price as the other one.
