Hi everyone, I've not posted regularly for a while but lurk every now and again. After seeing a few old timers post I thought I would too. I might not be a regular poster in future but I'm interested to read where the UK domain market is and what will happen next year (I believe) when the 5 year grace period/right of .uk registration for .co.uk owners expires! In the past I probably had 500+ UK domains, now down to <50, although I'm still a Nominet member/TAG holder - not really as worthwhile as it once used to be, but hard to break a habit of easily managing my domains - even if I have a few handfuls! My main splurge right now is .NYC domains which I see significant parallels to .co.uk in terms of reasons for buy in over .com etc. I think that there'll be a day when .nyc is the goto domain for many NYC businesses and residents over .com in the same way that .com was second choice after .co.uk. If any one is interested, in the market Developed.nyc is where I write about the namespace, sales and news. Anyways I probably didn't show it enough back then but Acorn was a great place when I was getting into domains years ago. I made enough money to avoid a proper job and was able to travel. It's sad because I never showed that I appreciated the community as much as I should have - I learned so much from many of you and completed so many great deals both as a buyer and a seller here. If I can help anyone with anything - please shoot me a message - would love to give back a little more where I can this time. Best, Matt p.s. I still have a few .co.uk sites that bring in a little income but I'm trying to cut back a little. If anyone is interested in a UK geo, I have the following that I'm thinking about selling again: morecambe.co.uk morecambe.uk @morecambe twitter handle Website content Also some nearby geos, garstang.co.uk and garstang.uk I turned down a £5k offer on these from an acorn member a few years ago for the Morecambe domains without the Twitter account so would be expecting more if I'm to sell. When I bought the domain and website it cost me about £3,000 (10 years ago) and the revenue, although dwindling, did pay that back the £3k a few times over (adsense and link sales). Anyways get in touch if interested.
