    Or is it? I guess a lot of people saw the auction and nobody felt confident to bid higher. Friday afternoon may not have been the best time to end though.

    I dithered about bidding and decided against it; but TBH I wouldn't know what to do with it - development potential not great etc and I wouldn't have paid that for it either (tight, lol). ;)

    For an investment, I'd rather spend that kind of ££££ on a decent generic .co.uk. :)

    Still a profit for the seller ~£500.

    Better combinations of letters should yield higher values in the years to come.

    Did it sell from Nom at Auction for £1100? I thought the cheapest LL was about £2k'ish.

    Ty did a great write up on it when it happened, it gave all the prices and buyers if I recall correctly.

    I think the ones like PR, HR etc will do well but these will struggle. It is one thing if they make a profit in 10 years time, but imagine using that 2k to buy a decent generic and use it for 10 years. You'd make more doing that in my opinion.

    Unless cash flow isn't an issue and to 99% of us in this game it is, I wouldn't be holding these.

    £930.

    Not all, Ty only reported about half the sales. http://exacts.co.uk/nominet-short-domain-auctions-who-got-what/ £900 for yx_co_uk is the lowest.

    "Unlikely" combinations on any domain (LL or LLL) will always have varying degrees of saleability, hence that reflection in the purchased prices.
