    I am newer at this and I was wondering what would be a smarter investment. I have an idea for a name to buy. The .com is gone, but I can get either the .net or the .co.uk....

    which is better?

    Depends your market, if it's the UK then the .co.uk would be better, if it's worldwide or USA then the .net could be a good option.

    how

    :D LOL spot on Aqua...

    uk DN's are gathering pace as an alternative to the ones everyone else already has! thus value increasing...

    to give you an idea on values etc try...

    www.domainprices.co.uk - for UK ccTLD

    www.dnjournal.com - for other TLD e.g .net .com etc

    also a lot of new domainers use this rough guide for help...

    www.3character.com

    plus you can search the many thousands of posts in Acorn and cut a lot of heartache our of buying / investing in the wrong .DOT!

    .co.uk is def on the up so good investments... mid-long term ;)

    If the site is UK based have the site as the .co.uk and then simply have the .net directed to the .co.uk

    Mares well take it when its reg fee...

    imo it doesent really matter that much but people do associate the internet with a dot com
