    What value would you put on these types of domains and
    does anyone know of any sales?

    Thanks

    I just paid £750 for b8.co.uk which I consider a reseller price but with very few sales prices for these types of domains its hard to put an end user figure on them.

    Someone asked me for similar advice a couple of months ago to which I replied (names altered):

    It could be worth hanging on to the names until the market for short names is full developed, as currently the market is there for domainers and ‘techies’ who wish short domain names for the vanity / convenience factors (email or dns servers).

    Regarding guide prices I have spoken previously with owners of similar names NL / LN etc and ~£750 does seem to be an achievable reseller rate so would value them accordingly taking that as a low. A1 I would imagine is more desirable than X4 and thus values would have to be adjusted.

    ...snipped abit...

    One further thought would be to secure associated names eg. FourB.co.uk BFour.co.uk to add value and counter any possible phonetic problem.


    Good to see B8.co.uk went for bang on predicted sale price ;)

    Thanks for all the replies.

    So promotion are listing:
    NL.org.uk between £100 - £200
    LN.org.uk between £150 - £400
    and have sold LN.org.uk for £125 - end user sale?


    and Grant paid reseller price of:
    LN.co.uk for £750


    What would be your best pick character combinations from LN and NL?
    Do you think the market for these will ever become popular with end users.
    I own quite a few and a recent scan confirms there are non available to register in .co.uk and .org.uk

    Although they are nice I think youll find the best selling 2 letter .co.uk's and now .org.uk's will be company names.

    Hello there,

    sorry I'm confused by what you mean. Most good 1 word domains anywhere will be the names of companies.

    Well not really. Generic words are the best sellers.

    Mate, Hate, Late, Weight, Fate etc would sell well as word generics.

    When its a 2 character I would think they would sell best to companies with names such as D3 L2 etc etc

    Perfect example is o2.co.uk

    My gosh... you do talk some twaddle.

    M8.org.uk - M8 is the name of many comanies + the name of a camera by the popular Lecia.
    H8.org.uk - H8 a make of Hummer and a Hitachi Make
    L8.org.uk - L8 is also a prefix of many companies "L8 Shop"?
    W8.org.uk - W8, Make of Volkswagon and also a popular company Prefix.
    and F8.org.uk - F8 is the name of the new "Facebook Movement".

    I can't say fairer than that.

    Secondly, O2 is not a great example of anything. It is nothing but a big company name (already established) and the chemical symbol of Oxygen.

    M8, H8, L8, W8 and F8 are all slang Internet terms... great for Internet use.

    Even weight watchers advertise on google for the term "w8" and other weight loss sites EG. allaboutw8.co.uk. W8.org.uk.. a Weight loss organisation. Great!

    I noticed in the last few weeks a few LN.me.uk domains sell for 99 pounds each.

    What are the current prices for LN and NL .co.uk, .org.uk and .me.uk ?

    Thanks

    Simon
