    Phones.co.uk £20,000 .

    Auto valuations are worth the price you pay.

    I'm amazed that anyone would take these auto valuation sites seriously. Way to many variables for them to be remotely accurate.

    maps.co.uk $290,000

    Too cheap, but at least it's "order of magnitude correct" :)

    As before, I find that it can only handle single generic words. I reckon I could do that myself. :)

    What value would you put on maps .co.uk as the owner?

    About 300,000 pounds. Based partly on traffic and revenue, and mainly on the size of the potential market (maps are one of the top 10 reasons people go online) and the quality of the name itself.

    Yes I know , auto-evaluation sites are rubbish. Domains can be great but a computer can say they are rubbish :)

    I did - Phones.co.uk it thinks is worth £20,000 :)

    Domain name alone sold for £50k and £175k inside last 9 months.

    If the name was listed on here for £20,000 it would be sold before the seller even hit the 'post' button :)

    I am not saying the makers of Estibot are fools, but I think anyone who bases buying and selling names on it are.
