Expected this one to go for a bit more, could be well suited for a ppc agancy imo
Trouble is, can you see a commercial ppc agency choosing an org.uk name as one of their main brands? I think it would work against them in a "you work on the web but can't afford the .co.uk" sense. Just an opinion though.
I agree with you Ty, I think they are great for keyword focused websites but I don't see them as mainstream URLs
True, but with the .org becoming more accepted as a "real" extension I could see the .org being used for more commercial purposed and there for I would have expected a bit more then 60
Well a lot of DomainLore auctions finish in the £50 to £100 range, apart from some top domains selling there recently.
Although it's a very active marketplace, I suspect most people there are domain traders rather than end users so prices achieved will reflect that.
It's only really being accepted as a "real" stand alone extension by domainer / developers.
I think that a real world business offering "internet focussed" services might have issues operating out of the org.uk if they didn't own the .co.uk from a credibility perspective.
At present I'm not denying that they are great for getting SERPs and generating leads, but they're still not on the wider business radar atm.
I was hoping it would fetch a little more to be honest but it is an .org.uk which can either sell quite well or fetch very little. Either way I decided to let the market decide on this one!
My thoughts were also that it could make for a good PPC name.
Don't worry, I will look after it!
I was very surprised to win it at that amount though..
I may be wrong but it might have been because it was ending on a Friday just before 5pm when most folk are just wrapping up at work and thinking about the weekend instead of checking auctions. I really must be more strategic with auction ending times in future.
I think you are spot on to be honest.. Sunday evening is the best finish time I read?
That may be true for ebay, but when you are talking about business related auctions, then I imagine weekdays would be best. I would think it would be best to have a time early in the afternoon to ensure that any time extensions occur within the 9-5 working day, with Friday afternoons avoided?
