    Another one I have just purchased.

    Cannot make out why the .co.uk extension is one off the few left on these las vegas domains :eek:

    Either they have been missed or they are all no good.

    Took a gamble as always

    Regards

    Gav

    Hi DB

    Thanks for your offer but I think I will keep this one as I can see some potential in this domain especially over the next couple of years.

    Thanks again

    Gav

    Hi DB

    I must be mad turning down your offer, but if it all go pear shaped I will only have to think back and remember the offer and a chance to have doubled my money. ;)

    No being serious for some reason I like these vegas ones and will probably develop them all at some point.

    I still just cannot understand why the .co.uk were not taken on these but nearly every other extension was :confused:

    What did you mean in your last post

    Good luck m8 nice free to reg!

    Did you mean nice domain to reg ?

    Thanks Again DB

    My feeling would that it's because the .uk and Las Vegas are a bit odd together. Apartment is more American too so it's quite an American domain but with a uk extension.

    Good luck though as it still has potential :)

    Hi Fraser

    Yes I know what you are saying about the .co.uk extension but normally on any half decent domains the .co.uk is gone if the .com and .net has.

    What I was meaning to say on some of the 5 vegas domains I have bought -

    lasvegasapartments.co.uk
    lasvegasjobs.co.uk
    lasvegasclubs.co.uk
    lasvegaslive.co.uk
    vegashomes.co.uk

    Even the .eu and .me had gone on these domains as well as the big ones but the .co.uk were left for the taken.

    I would have thought that the .co.uk would have gone especially if the other extensions were already bought.

    Just does not make sense to me, I have searched hundreds of domains over the last 3 months looking for half decent .co.uk domains but normally if anything they are sold first along with the .com and .net.

    Thanks for your comments

    Gav

    ah I see your point and agree that you would expect the .co.uk to go before the .me etc

    Good Luck :)

    Hi Gav,

    Good luck with this name. It looks great.

    Perhaps the reason .co.uk was available is because there's very little search volume from the uk for 'las vegas apartments' - only 91 last month, though 22,000 worldwide. Las Vegas is undoubtedly a holiday mecca, but are many people looking to buy apartments there from the uk ?

    I've just had a quick look and LosAngelesApartments, SanFranciscoApartments, WashingtonApartments and AthensApartments are still available in the .co.uk. I'm sure there'll be many more.

    re. eu, perhaps a european fancied a punt.

    re.me's with all the over-hype, everybody is buying everything ! - perhaps americans.

    It does look a nice name though, and you've landed a great city, despite the low exact match, so all the best with it.

    You may have landed on a beauty if a property company gets involved.

    Cheers,

    Steve.

    Hi Steve

    Many Thanks for your comments as always.

    Yes I know there are lots available in certain states but not ones that I would invest to much time in.

    I originally was searching for florida and orlando apartment domains and they were both taken.

    I then looked for hollywood and also out of luck. Just out of chance I thought I would have a look at lasvegas and that is how I happen to buy it.

    I think that you may be right and if not now in a few years time there will be someone that will be willing to pay a few quid for this, property developers or big time share companys.

    Who knows but I feel it was definateley a good find :D

    Thanks again

    Gav
