    Simon,

    I'd say around $3k-$4k IF you find the right buyer.

    Good Luck buddy.

    hi simon - small world :)

    nice hack, very hard to value as it really does depend on finding the right end user.
    best case for such a name would be to sell to one of the large interflora type service providers with deep pockets. hard part is getting them to see value in the name.

    best of luck

    Nice domain. Very brandable to the right end user.

    I've just hand registered venic.eu for FREE with a domain offer from Domain Monster. Code is ILOVEEU if anyone is interested

    I see the reported sales of some of these and just think to myself what on earth is going on?

    The first time I looked at them I just thought reg fee and no idea why people would register them or use them.

    I guess the sales say otherwise though, but not for me I'm afraid.

    if you had to register an eu and wanted a hack i would suggest going for something like members of the eu or countries in the eu vs attempting to mispell a full word. those terms have exact matches, don't think anyone searches for veniceu let alone will type venic.eu in a browser.

    ...hold on i think i might just hand reg membersofthe.eu :)

    Thanks for the input everyone one.
    TheKorat, cheers for the pricing.
    DTA, It is indeed. Good to see you on here and thanks for input think I'll have to get start making a list of endusers; there is so many.
    AuthorityDomain, Appreciate the input not sure on the .eu domain but free is free :)
    Greywing: Thanks also for the input, quite a few like yourself not into hacks but the sales figures are tempting and every hack I've dropped (only 4) have been picked up my others including a fairly big time domainer with his own international registry.

    Does anyone else have any thoughts price wise or ideas.
