I see BlackSwan.uk sold for £401
Is there any value in .uk pub/hotel names?
No exclusively a pub name, sounds quite elegant to me, I would have bought it for £150 but as ever I'm priced out
And yeah you can sell pub/hotel names but generally I wouldn't expect for more than lower xxx, all depends on the type of name and establishment that might use it
I registered RedCow uk if someone offered me low xxx id take it
I also have TheDrawingRoom couk + uk id ask for x,xxx for that
I'll have a look through namebio for past sales of pub names.
I also registered a few pub/hotel names
See how the go over the next few years.
Not sure if there is any money in them, but I like the sound and look of some of them, like RedLion.uk , WhiteHorse.uk etc, I have WhiteBear.uk , aside from being a pub , I quite like colour/animal names.
Good luck with yours.
There are a number of companies using the name BlackSwan! One in particular > https://www.director.co.uk/black-swan-data-the-uks-fastest-growing-start-up-22178-2/
In my experience, pub names are generally a shockingly difficult sale. YMMV.
I sold this back in 2015 https://domainlore.uk/royaloak.co.uk
Thanks for that
Heady days. Great sale.
It depends. I won't generally buy them from a reseller unless the price is too good to miss, but I offer services to pubs as part of my core business, so I tend to keep an eye out for any that I can catch as potential client sites.
Let's face it, most UK ye' olde pub owners aren't exactly cutting edge when it comes to their IT setup, so if they've survived for decades with owning "TheKingsHead.co.uk" or the "TheWhiteHorse.co.uk" etc they can make it until they peg-out or give up running a pub (by the way many UK pub landlords don't even own the pub so they can't even make a decision if they wanted too). You might flip the odd one sure, but it's just a worse form of trying to flog the old "northamptoncarpenters.co.uk" type of domain.
Separate names with a comma.
