Caught this one today. Pre-reg date of 1998.
Your thoughts and opinions please?
Saw you caught that
It did catch my eye with the searches, engine listing, and age. It will be interesting to see if it has any traffic.
In the 10s I've thought about it, I can't think what I would do with it. So, what do you see it being used for?
News, tourism and marketing/marketing agencies, holidays and it's brandable. On top of that it does have nice search volume too (18,100 local exacts).
Just my opinion of course. Similar 'The' domains have sold for nice sums. TheCurrent.co.uk for example sold for £1,000. TheCube.co.uk for £22,000!
You've just got to hope that one day someone wants it as a brand, that's it really.
I am sorry but I disagree with it being just a waiting game. This is a name that can be actively sold too. Don't know you about but the phrase 'the west' is commonly used where I am from..
Common use of words is not any indicator that it would make a good brand ?

You need to weigh up the cost of your time with the likely hood of a return…and non standout types with the new ,uk very unlikely
