    I'm a newbie in buying/selling domains, I have seen a lot of .co.uk domain, but not .uk domains.
    I have eyes on a few 1 and 2 word .uk domains, are they worth it?
    How easy would a 1 word .uk domain be to sell?

    I think they are under rated right now but all cc domains will mean more eventually dot co.uk is dominant but I really wanted to invest a while back but do not qualify.

    I see quite a few .UK names as I travel up and down the country.

    However as lock mentioned .co.uk is the dominant force.

    Some people will tell you that .UK are on the scrap heap but I honestly don't believe that. There are plenty of decent sales of them on domainlore and I've sold a few privately since picking them up in June last year.

    .UK domains are good if you have the right domain we own thousands best for long term holds

    I guess this answer depends on whether there has been an uptake in visible branding ad campaigns across the country (billboards/magazines) etc

    I own quite a few .uk's and recently the co.uk's have been dropped so i've been able to get them too. I've seen quite a few .uk in ads etc

    I am Italian but stuck in London for the last 3 months because of love and the lockdown... Anyway I can tell you that I have never seen one .uk domain. Not one! I have seen a lot of keyword1-keyword2.co.uk when probably the .uk was available without the hyphen. They just don't use the .uk, I have seen more .com respect the past. I will stay far away from two words .uk domains, maybe one word strong keyword .uk, but is not easy to get them and still I am not sure. Here don't like changes! You can still find the phone boxes around the city, just to make an example. Disclaimer: I love London and I've been spending part of the year here for the last 20 years, only in central London, I can't speak for the rest of the UK...

    The market is not big, forgive my frankness.
