    I'm happy with my purchase. I wasn't planning on spending a grand last night, but sometimes opportunities knock just once.

    The value of anything is basically what someone's prepared to pay for it. I think that sale thread showed a strong upshift for .org.uk domains - nine or ten people voted with their dough. If someone told you 15 years ago not to waste money buying up all the generic .co.uk's, you'd be kicking yourself now if you hadn't spotted a trend/opportunity - just like me :)

    .org.uk are whats left that will rank well its a no brainer why buy .co .cc or whatever

    you need something that will rank and .org.uk `s do so its just another avenue to get in to a niche were someone is sat on a .co.uk or .com or both the org.uk will go straight through if the density is ok so if someone is asking 40,000 for DebtConolidationLoans.co.uk
    whats the .org.uk worth please tell me as i have it along with approx 2,000 of the buggers

    I have been offered £15,000 for one of mine recently, although couldn't agree the price I wanted for it in the end and we went our seperate ways.

    But .org.uk's are certainly on the rise as they get more used, bit like a snowball rolling down hill. Although still only a little way down the hill as of yet, but picking up speed.

    Don't snowballs melt away to nothing...? ;) I know you can list them well ( which I suppose is what counts )and maybe a few being worth more than a few k, Can’t think of any business that’s based around one exclusively can anyone ?Highest I remember was games.org .uk $9000 … Think you'll always be able to sell any good generic in nearly any extension just not so sure many will..?

    The one I am referring to is probably better in .org.uk than any other extention. Yes snowballs do melt away but that is the chance you take, I my instance I didn't like the buyer too much anyway and didn't want them to have it all that much.

    Rugs/co/uk is on Sedo for £60,000 and it's undeveloped...

    We purchased rugs/org/uk and others from the thread.

    I'd be interested to hear your views on this domains value if ranked on top page/number 1 on google?

    I have seen the power of ranking .co.uk generics with high exacts.

    I have also seen .info and other extensions ranking well.

    I think that .co.uk sounds much better for a business selling products, however many businesses are not clued up on extensions.

    Would a .org.uk work as an ecommerce? Are website visitors bothered?

    I think that the .org.uk extension has lots of potential for the future and feel that we will be seeing more developed .org.uk names as some end user .co.uk names are too expensive.

    I was going to say earlier that all the names he mentions are owned by others?

    Didnt know if he ment he owned them though or was just pointing out well ranking .org.uk's :confused:
