    1nt3rn3t.co.uk is where its going :D

    Seriously though i think it can only go up - we are in the darwinian stages of Web/computing etc at the moment - but it will do very nicely for people like us for the next 50 years... ;)

    Ha, nice bump Sean! I was almost spitting out my drink looking at this thread title.

    I think in the short term domainers would be better having their domains indexed in the search engines, I'm not a domainer I would be more a developer and although I don't give a hoot about PR, having the domain at least indexed in google for a few years helps and ads value.

    Just with a mini site and a couple of sig links Belief is now indexed and ranking in Google.co.uk and that is perhaps a trick thats missing for me, I know domainers may have hundreds/thousands of domains but your best one's should have some history, no point in not making your target audience as large as it can be and developers would love a generic that's got a couple of years history in google and ranks in the top 10 for its keyword!

    You'll get a lot more money that way from the smaller guys anyway that don't have deep pockets to go out and brand a new website and over the next few years there are going to be more and more people looking for a nice doorway in and a generic domain with some history and a little traffic would appeal as one of the main expenses of a new venture.

    The interesting question is the history of the domain internet.co.uk :)

    IIRC the 'registrant' was just down as 'internet' and it was suspended and due to drop - can anyone confirm?

    Generally reserved names such as nic.co.uk have registrant of RESERVED.

    The domain internet.co.uk is owned by Nominet UK - rather than being reserved.

    Either way it is not good - if it was a legit transfer it means that the people looking after .UK registrations cocked up their own registrant information and didnt maintain their own domain name - hardly a shining example to the rest of us :) , or it means a tasty name was, erm, 'kept' which raises seperate questions.

    Or, thirdly, it ought to be placed as a RESERVED name which is what I think was meant to happen as it has not been in use and would fit the other RESERVED style names.

    I wonder if it will be auctioned off or is for sale though ? :)
