    I was bidding on a .com domain for a proper city in a major economy - it went for £5k and I stopped bidding, should I have?

    Feels like missed opportunity now...

    I think Edinburgh or Glasgow went for £100k

    Sounds like you did, but others come along.

    Glasgow was bought for 100k back in 2001. The owner has been trying to sell it for 4+ years, for 500k+ rather unsuccessfully.

    I would say he massively overpaid for the domain; in hindsight.

    What was the domain?

    If it's sold, you're not missing out by stating the city name. Can quickly tell you if missed an opportunity.

    Don't beat yourself up about it - there will always be more potential opportunities in this business than time. If you've still got the itch about this particular opportunity in a few years time you might still be able to jump on board.

    Only cry when the domain is sold on for millions ;)
