    If i saw bestbest.co.uk dropping, personally i wouldn't bother registering it even for £3.49. If someone offered you 1k$ i would take the money and run.

    Sell, unless you have some reason to think they would be back with another offer.

    Are you thinking it might be a car competition site doing a bit of brand protection?

    Of course, you got a $1000 offer on a weekend for a domain you hand registered 3 days ago, on Friday. You've also totally missed BestBest.uk too.

    This is one of the lamest ways to try and get a sale I've seen on here for ages.

    Where/how was the offer made? Curious how they found your domain so quickly after registration.....

    If it's a sales ploy, then it's certainly a very strange one.

    Everyone says it's crap and not worth $1000, so you should accept the offer. Is the offer then supposed to fall through and you get others buying it? If so, then what is the value of the domain if the one potential buyer doesn't buy it?

    If the sale falls through for whatever reason make sure you put it on domainlore with a reserve of at least £500 - you'll make a mint!

    If you really have buyer ready to offer $ 1000 for bestbest.co.uk, why is bestbest.uk still up for grab then?

    Guess we'll see who and if any one will go for it then :D
