    In your honest opinion which would you invest your money in? (Obviously the .COM has gone!)

    PS, I will register both, but just wondering which one you guys would go with? :)

    i have a few .nets but got them becuase i like them, not so much of an investment.

    i would say less than 0.5% of my portfolio is made up of .nets

    I'd go with .co.uk too but your highly unlikely to get an unbiased opinion on here.

    .co.uk has more value, however it limits the aftermarket to just UK based buyers.

    .com eats .net's lunch, but at least it can be used globally.

    Depends on what you plan to do with the domain - develop or sell.

    Why do you say that it limits the aftermarket to UK based buyers ?

    Depends about your domain purpose. For a ISP or a "Network" company .net tld is ok. For a domain what is for a company from 'uk' use co.uk

    You get .net to stop people cybersquatting your .com

    But here you can have .co.uk on its own :D
