    For some that I've bought or watched others buy, you're looking at multiplying your money by 10 - 20 if it goes ahead under v2. That looks like an acceptable bet to me, given the stakes are £500 - £2000 and the time invested is next to nothing.


    You don't have to carry the bet all the way through though. If you think it will launch and under v2 but then fail to take off, you can sell out at a profit in the launch month.

    what is the latest situation with this , will priority be granted to the .co.uk
    say for example was your domain headphones . co .uk or earphones . co . uk would you be given first opportunity on the .uk ?

    I saw your appraisal post on namepros.

    Do you own both the domains? I wouldn't have guessed you did looking at the whois and recognising the hardyment tag..

    They both have the oldest reg date so the co.uks would get the .uk under current proposals if it goes ahead.

    Nobody knows. Currently "oldest continuous registration" wins, but Nominet will announce their decision in November and that could change everything again. Until then we can waste a lot of time speculating, but in actual fact... nobody knows.
