    Hi Rich

    Seems a decent once, digital is all the future now.

    Did you buy anymore?

    Digital great, Wales not so!

    Can't see this extension going anywhere long term, but I'm no expert.

    I also got outdoors.wales and rafting.wales.

    I'm still not exactly sure on the reasons, but I think that there is potential in .wales domains/websites in certain niches.

    Research has shown over 70% of Welsh consumers would prefer to use a .wales tld over any other. I've invested a bit so far, think it may do well in years to come. Who knows, I could be wrong. But I'd stick with premiums only for now though..

    Would you class digital.wales as premium?

    Yes, absolutely.

    Edit: It's a premium keyword and domain. Only time will tell if it get's a premium resale value.

    Think its a great name if the extension takes off. Potential for a sale to website development / seo type company. May even get a sale to the public sector they often do digital type initiatives to encourage people into technology.
    The only possible downside is the lack of decent broadband in some areas of wales

    .wales clearly tells people "i am in wales" this will be very positive you wait and see.

    Edwin what are your thoughts if your out there?????

    Yes Wales will be good imo too. Some of us have picked up absolute premiums too. I'm going to dev some of mine, just you wait and see. :)

    Keep us informed!

    I guess it's too early to guesstimate a price-range on premiums at the moment.

    If Wales had a better digital TV / DAB radio signal then it may be a good domain.

    However, most of the country has those great big mountains in the way, blocking the signals unless you're down south, or near Liverpool.

    I think it's a nice name but you'll just have to see how the .wales market develops with regards to value.

    I think it was a forum member here (doesn't post that often now) who bought the .com for a considerable sum.

    Please tell me you're trolling. You do know what else the word 'Digital' is used for right? :eek:

    No, I have absolutely no idea what else it could possible mean...... :rolleyes:

    How many more people you planning on calling trolls? Seems to be all you're posting at the moment.

    I would give it a value on par with every other extension released in the last 10 years.
