    Do you know where I can find some statistics on how many registered domains there under each .uk sub-domain?

    Is .co.uk the only sub-domain with some real interest from domainers and end-users? How would domainers rankt the different sub-domains?

    Thank you on beforehand for any answers.

    The .co.uk is by far the strongest in terms of resale value.

    The .org.uk has some acceptance amongst domainers and developers, but the value is a fraction of the .co.uk, although some do change hands for good money.

    The .me.uk has some acceptance amongst domainers, but the resale value is restricted by the ownership rules, which say companies can't own them. The .me.uk has a fraction of the value of the .org.uk. The market for .me.uk isn't that good at the moment (although it could be argued it's a very good market for buyers).

    For developing a site, .org.uk is supposedly rated on a par with .co.uk by the search engines, but sells for about a tenth of the price of the .co.uk .

    It might be mentioned that some .de domains go for very good prices, but you need a good knowledge of vernacular German to go into that market with confidence - or is that where you are coming from?

    Well Fabster has moved to "reputation without repute" extremely fast, so we can gain that 'Admin' have added their opinion - (once again)

    Nice to see some global players coming onboard here - still needs some (urgent) moderation on TM names on the sales section to bring it into the mainstream and I'm sure that will come.
