    Dividends.co.uk v dividends.uk; I see the .co.uk went for roughly 4.5 times more than the .uk on DL.

    Is this a fair reflection of the short and long term market value of .co.uk v.uk?

    It's pretty much impossible to value .uk domains at present, as it seems it's mainly domain resellers buying them.

    I think you need a number of comparative sales before drawing any conclusions. As the seller of the .uk I do think buyer got himself a nice name for a bargain price. I think I've had disappointing results on Friday afternoons in the past so that might be a factor - sun shining, and england starting to play well - at least we had a decent days cricket :)

    Nice sales, but I was struggling to see any real use for them in the real world?

    I guess you could create a website that lists all UK stocks that provide dividends and how much historically they've given etc.

    Could see a new "uk personal investing" type of blogger (like monevator etc) using it to create a blog.

    Unfortunately that market is well and truly saturated. When you see the other sites out there you'll realise just how much cash etc you'd need to throw at it to even get a look in against established sites.

    Not sure what this one could be used for

    What it can be used for and how difficult it would be to rank are two different things.

    Of course you 'could' do something with them, but come on, we all know they'll be on the scrapheap in a year - surely no one in their right mind would invest all that is required (lots of time+money) to make them some kind of success in this sector without owning the pair.

    I'm confused. I'm guessing you know the buyer and that they didn't buy both? Plus, it's not mega money that was paid for these, only a couple of hundred pounds.

    Or do you refer to the .com/.co.uk pair or something?

    People buy all sorts of weird stuff. I thought this was a nice one. Perhaps an accountant etc. might want it. Who knows.
