    While I understand UKBO is a private backorder service and not a public auction site, it's still a shame to loose access to that data @sigh

    This wasn't intentional. Just saw the post now.

    Just for clarity, I had message Rob yesterday asking if this change was intentional.
    I never expect anything from anyone, including their time, so I did say that if he didn't respond I will assume it was intentional, and thank you for the sales data up until this point.

    Rob has been super kind and fixed the feed almost instantly, of which I am really appreciative. Thank you, @sigh.

    UKBO sales data reinstated!

    Latest Update: Search Term Wildcards

    For those that don't know, this means that you can now search for domains that start or end with specific keyword terms (ignoring extension).

    For example:
    1. Starts with: casino%
    2. Ends with: %casino
    The current default behaviour is "%casino%" (known as contains), so the above examples provide quite a bit more control on search queries.
    If you want an exact match, you would include the domain extension as part of your search term.

    Top 10 UK domain sales ending with casino


    Coming Up:
    I am currently working on some functionality to display live Domainlore and Flip auctions, whether they have been sold before and the ability to view more details or related domain name sales.

    Latest Update: Live UK Domain Auctions with prior sales history

    I've added a new panel to the home page that displays current live domain auctions that have previous sales history.

    Currently it only supports Domainlore, but I have requested some kind of feed access on Flip.

    Data displayed is pretty much raw from the RSS feed right now. I will probably tidy it up and make it more user friendly in the coming days, but it's quite nice to have quick visibility of this kind of info.

    Latest Update: Redirecting seemly.co.uk sales history

    With the launch of domainsaleshistory.uk back in November 2020, I decided now is the time to redirect all domain sales related traffic to the new app.

    Anything that previously pointed at domain sales related pages should be redirected, and maintain search related queries seamlessly.
    If you are aware of any redirects not working correctly please let me know.

    I still have future plans and improvements, but I feel the new app is in a better position and provides greater benefits to users than seemly.co.uk did.

    Bulk Whois
    The bulk whois functionality found on seemly.co.uk has been removed, and the URL redirects to the new app.
    Bulk whois facility does exist on the new app but requires user account signup/login to prevent abuse.

    Domain Sale Trends
    You may be aware of the trends feature on seemly.co.uk, which basically showed a bunch of sales data in graphs. This feature has not yet been replaced as I don't know how useful/interesting people found it, so it's not deemed a priority.
