I think Paullas has hit the nail on the head with this. The reason for the domains being priced as they are is due to the fact that it is a "domainers event". Whilst I appreciate many of you would have liked to have seen numerous domains priced over 50k GBP, from experience these domains are unlikely to sell. Rather than have an inventory of "pretty" names that wont sell. The aim here is to have reasonably priced domains that WILL indeed sell. How many end users do you know, before you call them, that are clued up on domains? Now compare that to the US market....... @ Barry, yes gold.co.uk is a nice domain, however there are plenty of other domains for sale of equal quality. I cant just favour 1 persons names and drop the commission to suit yourself, I have to be fair with everyone. If other people are paying the 15%, then why should you be different? If you would prefer Gold.co.uk to be "in room" ONLY we can negotiate the commission, however if you are looking for me to contact end users before hand and also stream this auction live and include it, then there are costs both for my time and comission costs we are having to pay ourselves to make this live. Hence the extra 5%. Good luck! Thanks Graeme. I guess I cannot please anyone, its impossible. It is also true what you say that many people are holding the more premium generics and dont want to sell them. 90% of these people I know, they too are paying bargain basement prices. Whilst there is nothing wrong with this it is the same people that are looking to put similar domains in the auction for "End user" prices. @ TY . Meetdomainers is a European domain event. Many attendees that are due to attend are NOT from the UK. There are also a high proportion coming from the states. .co.uk doesnt rule the internet, it would benefit many to take a look at this auction list again and see past the TLD and look at the investment opportunities. I also strongly disagree the reserves are unrealistic or poor. Of course not everything will sell, I dont expect it too. However I am sure a large percentage will. Hence the pricing, so that everyone in the room can afford to take at least 1 domain home. Whilst I too favour the .uk extension many do not, due to the importance to a business to also own the .com if trading internationally. Germans just use .de, Dutch just .nl, South Africans, .co.za. The .com is not so important in other countries.
