    Hi,

    Sold public (co.uk/uk pair) recently in a private sale (low six figure sum).

    Goes to show there are buyers out there willing to pay for good uk domains.

    After currency conversion, the price was approx £110k for both the .uk and .co.uk

    Congrats a great sale.

    It would be really interesting to know how you ended up arriving at 110k, was there a lot of negotiation? Did they make you an initial low ball offer and you just went back with £110k firm take it or leave style, or maybe they just asked/offered a price outright and you accepted it?

    https://public.io I guess it might have been this lot..they realised .io is gunna be trash in the UK. I wonder if they knew about the .UK or you just gave it to them.

    There was a bit of negotiation, offer and counter offer. I got very close to the price I wanted. Interestingly, they were only interested in the .uk, but in the end we agreed a deal for both extensions.

    That's really interesting thank you for sharing that info.

    Reinforces good reasons not to let "premium" domains go for a pony (or a monkey) on auction sites especially the .UK

    One of the international buyers in one of our names was the same, didn't really care about .co.uk - just the .uk. My boss is only launching sites on .uk's now, beginning to rank really well.
