Got some ln.uk domains - any thoughts on value?
Depends on the letter & number eg l8.uk - valuable. n2 not so
I don't agree - why is n2.uk less valuable? Their all speculative punts at the end of the day.
If a band emerged called n2 who became global superstars or a new TV channel.
You could argue that z9.uk is way worse and I would say it probably is, that said it is still pretty memorable.
Now 0l.uk thats what I would describe as dodgy, but it can be yours for just 50k https://perfectdomain.com/domain/ol.uk
l8= late which is meaningful.
z9, n2 mean nothing which is speculative
Yes, clearly some will have greater potential demand e.g. A1.uk, U2.uk, O2.uk etc because the phrase is in common usage and/ or more businesses will exist using that phrase. Also quite a lot of them will be postcodes and the ones ending in 1 will probably be synonymous with the city centre area, which again provides some potential to be used as a geo.
It really depends on the letter/number combo.
I bought an LN.uk last year for just shy of £1k
Some other interesting LNs that have sold recently: f1.uk, h6.uk, i3.uk, t5.uk, f6.uk, r2.uk, v4.uk, x2.uk, s9.uk, j7.uk, i5.uk, n8.uk, a0.uk, x5.uk, h8.uk, d5.uk, h7.uk, p2.uk, l6.uk, n6.uk, w4.uk, t9.uk, u3.uk, x3.uk, n9.uk, x4.uk, z4.uk, i6.uk
Each to their own. I'd rather have n2 all day than l8. Just because l8 could be interpreted as meaning "late "in 2010 text speak, which really is a negative word and I see as a market limiting factor, other than that "l" is a confusing letter in print (or is it a uppercase I?) and 8 is a pretty bad number which only works in this one instance. Now "m8" I think is better as thats positive. I wouldn't say n8 is good though. I think the key numbers for LN domains are 1,2,3 as they seem to work with any letter but the rest require the right letter.
Late need not have a negative connotation. Sometimes it is turned to advantage e.g. laterooms.com and the similar lastminute.com
I think its just hopeless speculation and wishful thinking, that ship has long sailed. Sorry I sound negative.
Ive got a few speculatives, including the text speak one mentioned lol if anyone wants to make offers
Seems like i might be the best suitor for l8.uk - guessing you dont have the .co.uk too?
I don't unfortunately
The difference between .co.uk/.uk and .com
p6.com - currently in auction at $71k
Indeed ! If you are genuinely interested in l8 or any of the others i'd let you have for considerably less than that ha ha !
l8 is a better domain ;-)
