What's the best timing for Domainlore sales of .co.uk and .uk domains (separately)?

Which domain name sale would you have end FIRST on DomainLore?

  1. The .co.uk form of the domain

    Do you have any thoughts on what's the best timing to sell matching .co.uk and .uk domains separately on DomainLore?

    (Please assume we're talking about really top-notch domains, if that helps.)

    Would you have the .uk end first? The .co.uk? Or end them both at the same time. All feedback welcome, especially if based on experience. Thanks!

    My feeling is I don't want to be stranded with the .uk, bought at maybe a high price, if someone else then goes on to get the matching.co.uk... whereas I think being stranded with the .co.uk and losing out on the .uk would be a lesser hit, even if still very frustrating.

    I guess it depends on if the buyer is wanting both or not.

    If I was bidding and wanting both, I would feel like the seller isn't considering me as a buyer by not selling them as a pair combined directly. I want to control bidding on both as a combined pair, not potentially have someone out-bid me on one and not the other. Someone may value the .UK a lot more than it's worth or what I would ever pay for a .UK for example, but then I've lost domain extension dominance if that's what I was after, so why would I then bid on the .co.uk.

    If I was bidding and not wanting both, I wouldn't care about the ending differences. But it would be in my benefit that I'm not having to pay for the extension I didn't want.

    Exactly that plus the OPTION of bidding for .uk if the co.uk went for too high a price.

    One option auction sites might consider is to allow you to list the .co.uk with a message saying winning bidder will be given first option to buy .uk at same price or X% discount of sales price.

    I wouldn't auction them at the same time as to compete with each other for bids

    I would list one, sell it, then sell the other one whenever

    If you're selling a .CO.UK domain on DomainLore and you have the .UK, DomainLore assumes you're selling the .UK with it, does it not?

    Either way, I would sell them at the same time. A buyer may be more interested in purchasing if they see they are both available
