    I was happy to get lax.org.uk.

    Could be a lacrosse site, but its also a dictionary word and a nice "two" letter acronym for a company (with the x as a throw in bc/ uk domains can't be two letters)

    Thoughts on value?

    Thanks...

    So UK .orgs are worth little then so far? I'll keep it and see what the market brings...

    Thanks for your time.

    Can't really see any value, a business (for profit) would not be interested in org's and there is zero demand in the reseller market that I am aware.

    Thanks again

    Well, I'll just hope that a giant non-profit lacrosse league is started in the UK :) :) :)

    Otherwise, I'll just hope that the value if this extension goes up.

    Thanks for the appraisal

    The average .org.uk I sell and I sell them cheap, is £150.

    but you must have great names - what do you think of lax?

    Never heard of the term lax, is it an American thing?

    definition: not strict or severe; careless or negligent

    From the BBC, for example:

    UK lax over identity theft
    By Julian Knight
    BBC News Personal Finance Reporter

    Identity theft could lead to theft from your bank account
    People are leaving themselves wide open to identity theft by not taking proper precautions with their private correspondence, according to a leading criminologist...

    The only thing worth using .org.uk's for is as an email group. Once too many of them get into the junk mail lists, simply throw the domain name away and register another one. I find that works a treat!

    lax means lazy, laxative or as in the airport, I have words and products, they fit alright. You might sell LAX as a destination, you might find someone willing to buy it, but I don't know, I have enough trouble blagging my own, we all do. We could all sell for £6 but when investing we expect £600.
