    Anyone any thoughts on value of solarlamps.co.uk? Low £XXX maybe?

    Energy supplied via solar still cannot be produced to be sold competitively (costs about twice as much) to the grid but development of the technology means in years to come it should be a viable way to generate energy on a larger scale (although wind turbines seem popular atm) so I presume domain would be worth much more should solar become a bigger topic and bigger industry, not sure how much more valuable though?

    The domain is already in G Top10 for 'solar lamps' so considering whether to develop or just offload as have other sites to get on with.

    Definitely some value here, I would probably optimise it in Google then approach potential buyers that make the things.

    ..unless someone really wants it...

    I would have to say high £xx is the best you could hope for, unless someone really wants it, then its down to your negotiating skills.

    Remember - this is only my humble opinion!

    I think you're right, having had a proper look in Google quite a few related search terms don't seem overly competitive so after optimisation it should rank fairly well.

    You've lost me there, why does it make no sense?

    A nice name to sell some of those garden solar lamps.
    Loads of people have those but they're so dim at night - as the solar cells improve your domain will probably increase in value too :)

    Alternative energy technologies are seeing big investments considering fire in crude oil prices and pollution it creates......domains are no exception.....green domains and ecology related domains soon will find favour from domainers.......this is a nice domain......hold on to it :)

    Thanks, think I definitely will now, I only paid the reg fee for it in middle of last year so should be a good % return when I do sell it!

    I would agree that - with a little selling effort - it might bring high xx.

    Regards
