Portfolio for sale (>200 domains)
Thanks for all the PMs so far. I've replied with guide prices but if anyone else wants to make offers you know where I am. Surprised at the lack of interest in the Islamic names to be honest, what a market that will be in the coming years.
I can only see 2 Islamic domains on there, and they are for credit cards.
And there are no Islamic credit cards.
Thus, no interest
I'd buy them as a gamble, but the price would have to be pretty damned low.
Well... all the Halal names are Islamic names.
You can get what is known as Islamic credit cards in some countries and they are on the way to the UK. Have a read of http://www.islamicmortgages.co.uk/index.php?id=76 and http://www.zawya.com/story.cfm/sidZAWYA20071108073001/SecMain/pagHomepage
The lack of interest is more to do with ignorance of the market than value, imho.
They certainly aren't going for a low price.
Is there not something in Islamic law about not charging interest that would make an Islamic Credit Card impossible?
Quite literally no interest!!
Looks like I was too slow and lacking in knowledge when making my post!
Exactly. Islam forbids such behaviour.
/bangs head on wall
yes, of course, but they are still known as Islamic Credit Cards...
In the same way people talk about pre-pay credit cards...
It does, however there are ways and means of getting around it. ie. 'fees' rather than interest etc etc
Trust me guys, I know a fair bit about Islam and keep up-to-date with the Islamic press and business press. The City of London and the government are very keen to become a major force in Islamic finance.
btw - I have dropped you an email - not sure if you have got it?
I haven't Rob, no? Cant you resend please.
Rob, have you got my last two emails? I've had no reply. I'll PM you too.
And now I have a spare moment (Christmas sales are crazy...) - going back to the Islamic credit card "debate"...
Pakistan is getting one - http://www.thenews.com.pk/daily_detail.asp?id=83983
the Dubai Islamic Bank is launching one - http://www.ameinfo.com/140813.html
and Malaysia is getting one - http://biz.thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2007/11/22/business/19542842&sec=business
Anyone want to place a bet on there being one in the UK soon?
Hi - yes - got a reply in drafts will sort something
There are some nice domains in that list so good luck with the sale.
Hi, I'm interested in just one of these names. Are you still selling individually?
hi, always taking offers - pm me if you'd like?
Separate names with a comma.
