    Would you be willing to give some indication of the reserve price?

    Thank you

    What I meant is that is it the same owner ie option to purchase...eg say 50 percent of final auction price

    Removed from auction. Don't try and sell a .co.uk domain on Godaddy o_O

    You removed the auction because you didn't like the price, or because the reserve wasn't met?

    Neither. There was literally no bidding activity so was pointless it being up.

    Think it was a mixture of Godaddy just purely being a bad place to try a auction .co.uk domains (DL or Flip only in the future!) and the domain value being out of reach of most peoples budget, so they didn't bother even trying to bid.

    Did you cancel the auction due to lack of bids? You are aware most bids come in the last 10 minutes?

    No.. he didn't cancel the auction 'the auction ran its course', however, the reserve was not met and the highest bid was not being challenged.. meaning the auction came to a stalemate and simply ended!

    So it was just that the reserve was too high as I presume the highest bidders bid would have been acknowledged if it had met the reserve?

    I'm aware of that. When I say there was no bidding activity, I mean there was literally no bidding activity.

    The wasn't even 'lowball' bidding activity, as I would call it. Ghost town over at Godaddy for .co.uk auctions. No-one around to bid.

    Had direct offers on here, other forums and direct to my email for low to mid 5 figures. Nowt on the auction o_O

    You're not understanding. The reserve isn't even in the equation. :D

    There wasn't even bidding taking place.

    It was like seeing London.co.uk being bid at for £50 maximum. The marketplace was literally dead.
