Keys, I find the UK domain market a bit of a lottery when it comes to selling. I think perhaps the nominet system has something to do with it and the fact that there aren’t really that many players. Comparatively the US/.com market and perhaps the German market seem to be well organised and a large number of registers. The number of names taken and offered seems to level out the market and you can kind of judge the value of your domain name more easily. Of course you will always get a name that appeals to a focused buyer but the general market is far more stable. Percentage wise the UK domain market seems to have a certain number of players who hold a large number of key domains. they all seem to be holding out for the focused buyer and so the movement in the market is very small with 'holders' all generally going for the same valued domain names. I don’t totally blame these 'holders', I would tell anyone that if you want a domain name and the one you want to 'gone' offer them what you think its worth and if not register something else like 'google' etc. I think in order to make UK market more accessible the whole population needs to catch up and get involved. with more players buyers have the option to go else where for similar names. With the breakthrough in broadband perhaps this will happen - people don’t what to be email@example.com when the could be firstname.lastname@example.org. Currently i don’t think there are enough buyers and the 'sitters' (no offence anyone) are waiting for the population to become educated.
