I bet the UK owner is dancing around the house this evening. Congratulations to buyer and seller.
Nevermind.. sale still pending of course.
Was watching this quite eagerly.
Absolute cracking domain
Fingers crossed it goes smoothly
It will go smoothly, have a great weekend everyone.
Can't see any end use for this domain other than one for the trophy cabinet, incredible price considering, seller should be happy.
Oh behave. You can't see an end-use for holiday.co.uk?
You could use it for that but for me it just doesn't work. I personally feel there is distinct difference between whether a domain has any decent monetary "value" and whether it could "work" as a real world business. I'm gunna sound like a I'm trolling here because I feel the same with names like car.co.uk or leisure.co.uk etc. It's a good name, the market sets the value.
Sub domain heaven
The potential is huge, and in the right hands it could become a household name. As ever, it all depends on content and development. There are vast markets out there that could well be attracted to a portal like this. Good names are valuable. But content is King.
’DAY’ rhymes with ‘K’ - little touch but takes it to another level
That certainly works for gay.uk
There are all sorts of subliminal quirks like that with domains. For example, I don't like two-word domains, where the first word ends in a vowel and the second word starts with a vowel. Something about it seems blurry somehow.
And I avoid hyphens like the plague.
In the end, if the content's there, and what people are looking for, you're away.
I would rather own this domain than its niches like cruise, benidor etc.
This is the all encompassing king daddy.
Offers its new owner unlimited development potential.
You could concievably sell Virgin flights to upper atmosphere or weekend in Scunthorpe on this platform and everything inbetween.
To either be the buyer or the seller would be an amazing day. Id be so excited as either party.
What works better as a brand in this niche - sunshine.co.uk or holiday.co.uk
Holiday works a lot better. How do I sell ski holiday, cruises or Bognor Regis weekend break with Sunshine
Holiday is a whole lot more, flights, hotels, cruises, breaks, holiday packages, road trips and much more.
Sunshine is good but not quite Holiday.
Brands are only relevant after the fact, when you know the outcome, so the above is a stupid question to ask.
If holiday.co.uk becomes one of the top 3 online holiday websites, you wouldn't be able to argue it doesn't better as a brand. "Brands" are only brands when they've become successful, really.
A successful 'brand' is only defined because of its success, not because of how good the name is.
Let's be honest. If Google wasn't a thing and someone here posted they were starting a search engine and going to brand it 'Google' - They would get laughed at. Google is only considered a good brand name due to its success.
Your question wasn't a genuine question either. You were trying to push your opinion that the brandable was better. Personally, I prefer Holiday.co.uk.
"Darling - was it holiday.co.uk or holidays.co.uk?"
I'm not sure why you're hating on the domain so much. You're trying every sort of way to hate it.
"Darling - Was it sunshine.co.uk or sunshine.com"?
Your brand suggestion failed right there also. If they go to the .com they're going to think they've been scammed.
Brands works extremely well when they've become established and successful, yes. Brands are not easy to make a success though. Again, you're looking at outcomes after the fact and saying it's the better option.
Selling your house and buying 100,000 lottery tickets is the best thing you can ever do.... if you win the jackpot.
So I think you are saying brands are only successful once they are successful, right?
I think. Maybe. Yes.
