Four years ago, Internet entrepreneurs Paul and Steve Walsh spent £25 on the domain name Bargains.co.uk. They could have realised a net return of £250,000 on their investment if they'd sold to a High Street retailer interested in buying the name six weeks ago. But the net savvy brothers behind a number of profit making web sites, including hotel room service www.laterooms.com and multi-quote insurance service www.easycover.com decided to forge ahead with their own plans for the valuable domain name and today, Thursday 12th October, launched their new online service at http://www.bargains.co.uk. Three years ago, the pair looked at what was happening in the states and caught on to the value of descriptive domain names such as business.com or loans.com. Working late one night in September 1996, the couple snapped up a number of the best UK descriptive names for just £25 each, including Bargain.co.uk, Bargains.co.uk, Quote.co.uk, Deals.co.uk, Offers.co.uk and Electricity.co.uk full story: http://www.prnewswire.co.uk/cgi/news/release?id=30651 full story: http://www.prnewswire.co.uk/cgi/news/release?id=30651 +++ Old news but years on, the sites don't look as good as they should IMO.
