    OK, gents!! I am new to Acorn Domains. I own over 700 domains covering the whole world. They are all .com ; .co.uk or .net.
    The bulk are "visit" domains, followed by the place-name.
    Here are a few :-
    visitbratislava.com ;
    visit-greatbritain.com ;
    visitunitedkingdom.co.uk ;
    visitsheffield.com ;

    I own a web-site called visit-the-world.co.uk with dozens of linking tourism sites.
    My biggest individual site is visit-dubai.co.uk . If you put "visit dubai" into Google UK , I am TOP . Into Google.com and I am second.
    Many of my domains and some of my web-sites are for sale.....at the right price!!
    I would appreciate your opinions of these domains.

    The comma will kill the value of this domain, plus you have the problem that visitBritain is trademarked by the UK government which could lead to problems ... sorry.

    What "comma"? There is no comma in visit-greatbritain.com . That is a HYPHEN for goodness sake.

    I happened to have 75 per cent in O Level English in the Sixties when the marking was TOUGH!!

    Now I am arguing with people who do not know the difference between a comma and a hyphen!! Lord save us!!
    As for VisitBritain.......do you THINK they OWN THIS ISLAND KNOWN AS GREAT BRITAIN??

    Geographical place-names are generic .....NOT BRANDS!!

    No-one has challenged my ownership of visit-greatbritain.com in FOUR YEARS.
