Any ideas on price??
Well, re price, I reckon you probably paid £5.90 + vat....
...and I think you'd have been better off keeping the money...
2 issues with .me.uk's:
More difficult to rank
can only be owned by an individual
.me.uk's always get a hard time on here....
If someone religious wants it and has a few quid.... I don't see why you couldn't get a few hundred to an end user if marketed well.
THX for answer
Not sure that God is in the business of buying domain names.
Yes I am...
Does god need a domain then? Thought he was ever present and all seeing already? Bit like google but without ad words...
If those who believe in a God had a website to go to where they could offer prayers to their saviour... then yes, he does!
... and I think over the coming years we'll see a lot more 'religious' websites and TV channels scamming money from those looking for 'hope'.
I stand by my appraisal... unless anyone knows God personally and would like to speak on his behalf... or do you think he would issue a DRS?
Why should this domain only be reserved for religious types? Anyone could use it for their personal blog. If I was the blogging type, I would use god.me.uk. It's a great domain for anyone with a massive ego and it suits the extension. I would say it was worth low £xxx to end user.
Willbon - I know God personally because he owes me £40. I sold him BigBlackStrapons.com a few weeks ago and he still hasn't paid me. I'm sure he would pay a few hundred for god.me.uk.
Sorry I disagree that either of two issues is true!
1. They should be as easy or difficult to rank as a co.uk or org.uk
2. They can be registered by anyone and they often are. According to someone at Nominet, there is "no monitoring of applications for the .me.uk domain names as manually checking each one would be restrictive. We do rely on registrants and registrars to accept the spirit of, and the rules relating to .me.uk registrations".
You have to wonder what the point of the rules are if they are not actively enforced.
Separate names with a comma.
