    Any thoughts on how big the .uk drop catching market is in terms of the number of .uk domains that are caught through drop catching services?

    1,000 a month across everyone? Much more?

    cheers

    It will peak at the point when enough people have their redundancy money in hand and start to build new businesses.

    I'd say more than 3000 a month, given that 20,000+ a month drop.

    174 domains caught today (that I know of) which extrapolates out to 5,300 a month, assuming this is an average day.

    The question referred to "through drop catching services?". So, would guess in the hundreds.

    A majority of the drops go to entities running their own private set-up.

    Hi folks. A few months on and do people think more names are dropping now?
