    Hi there, I am interested in leasing some domains, just wanted to know if you recommend leasing over selling, I can only see advantages to it but what are your thoughts?

    A hand full of domains I was thinking about leasing...

    scarymazegame.co.uk
    foreveralone.co.uk
    ragdollgames.co.uk

    etc

    Many thanks

    Andy

    imo those domains aren't anywhere close to valuable enough to warrant leasing... a straight sale would be the only way I could see you making any money from them.

    Hi just need a bit of advice really,

    I recently Purchased this dropped domain perspektivpurple.co.uk after checking it had over 50,000 backlinks and also seeing the company perspektiv.co.uk probaly didn't realise it was dropping, so I thought I could sell it back to them but so far I have not had much luck contacting them yet.... but just wondered where would be the best place to sell it? if they don't require it back and would it be sought after because of the back-links?


    All the best!

    Andy

    The calibre of domains and company that has taken the lease route - domains.co.uk

    They should probably remove that ContractHire.co.uk feature.

    Domains.co.uk have some real nice domains. But I think the leasing model is a bad one at this point in time. Google are far too eager to penalise you (whether for something you done yourself, or for something a competitor done for you).

    As an owner, I wouldn't want to lease out a high value domain and have it handed back after 4 months effectively worthless as its now penalised.

    Thanks for your reply fox I see One word dictionary terms etc no problem I can see sales will be the best route for me to take... I only started the above post as i cannot start any more threads lol, just wondered on if you thought the domain was valuable and best place to market it? what with having over 50,000 back-links


    All The Best!

    Good domains sell themselves, so if the whois output and resolving domain(s) have contact info stating "for sale", buyers will come.

    thanks again for all your help I really appreciate it regarding to what you say about the whois output and clearly being marked as for sale etc have I done all I can with for example perspektivpurple.co.uk? it will send buyers to the parking page with the option to buy, is there any other way I can mark that its for sale? like on the whois page?

    Kind Regards

    Manipulation of the address fields, "domain for sale" and your email address, although Nominet have been cracking down on that tactic. I'm still confused as to why Nominet won't publish admin email addresses in the whois output? Postal is dying out.

    Re your perspektiv domain, delete it and walk away. It's not remotely generic, just a DRS waiting to happen. Call it a cheap basic education in how not to choose domains...

    But Perspektiv is not a Trademark? so why would I not be able to sell this?

    Regards

    Do domains carry any context with respect to trademarks? For example, Acme Inc. trade in the US with a registered trademark and you then register acme.co.uk and there is no registered UK trademark; could Acme Inc. raise a domain dispute over the .co.uk domain stating it infringes their US trademark?
