Hi guys, I feel like I'm a bit of an imposter, because I'm actually an Aussie domainer (no convict jokes please), but I do a fair bit of hanging out here on AD because it's a great place to learn and there aren't really any comparable forums of any size in Australia yet. Our biggest domaining forum has a grand total of 268 registered users (compared to AD's 8000+), with maybe 20 members that actually post on a semi-regular basis. This is due to two main factors imo - the relative 'slowness' of Australians at adopting new technology (at least compared to the US and UK), and really draconian legislative restrcitions. Some of them still remain in place (currently only Aussies can own Australian domains), while others have thankfully been relaxed - up until a couple of years ago it was actually illegal to sell a domain name, so our secondary market is really still in its infancy. While it means that there's a whole lot less money to be made at the moment, this does of course have its upsides - in a sense I have access to a 'time machine' when I check out places like AcornDomains. The UK and Australia are culturally and economically (per capita) very similar, so I feel like you guys are a very good indication of where our market will be in 5 years. Anyway, my question is in twofold. The first part is really directed at the veterans on here, I'm curious about where the UK market was 5 years ago. Were things very different? How much have prices changed? What has the general growth rate been like? How much has the 'domaining' community expanded? The second part is for everyone - how much growth is left in the UK market? What will it look like in 5 years? Will there be more domainers around? Will good quality domains be worth significantly more, or have things plataeued? Cheers guys.
