    Rubbish? Hahaha are you British? But you're right. Their software is total trash. Crazy even though they're the biggest registry. You would think they would have the best of the best. Good marketing and bad outdated tech.
    I didnt have much to lose. At the least, I get a full refund. I pre-registered over 250 names. I doubt I would get anymore but it was still exciting. I am mainly into .COM anyway but I know there will be a market for these.
    Many who aren't in the UK likely wouldn't.
    Coin.uk is a great domain. I wonder what it will end at.
    Hahaha yeah I realized it and was like, 'it doesn't matter anyway.' I mainly wanted to share the notification, hahaha.

    You have a couple of legal domains there as I buy legal domains at reg fee lol

    Your

    London solicitor. uk

    Is worth a few quid As is your

    Private coach

    I have

    Crypto solicitor

    And

    Crypto solicitors

    And

    Crypto lawyer

    And

    Crypto lawyers

    In

    .uk

    And a few more

    Tire is spelt wrong for the. uk as in the uk it's spelt tyre

    Just like color is the states version and colour is the uk version etc

    UK wouldn't use tire version

    Even though the 2 languages are very similar there are slight differences in how some words are spelt

    Block chain as a concept is quite new

    Eg I am from the uk and didn't really hear about block chain until about 3 years ago etc Eg 2016 ish etc so if a person does a who is check for block chain. Co.uk It must have been registered after the the date in 2014 meaning if it was registered in say 2015 it would not have had the. Uk reserved for it and or it did but. Uk Is only starting to become the preferred choice but the uk public would automatically assume it was. Co.uk

    Well don't use the first word of your domain etc as it's a term used in the states

    And as for the second domain lol

    I could think of one or two websites to redirect it to lol

    OK here goes lol

    I am from the uk etc

    To understand the

    .uk

    Market

    You have to forget domain names

    And go way back in the uk to about 40 years ago to the era of the yuppie in the 80's awash with dough Eg money buying porsche etc in the uk you done OK if you bought a porsche or rolls Royce etc but in the uk back then there was a little white booklet that used to list personalised number plates by a company called

    Elite registrations where a person could buy a personalised licence plate or as we say in the uk number plates etc so that people who had a few quid could pose and buy a number plate with their initials on it and a couple of numbers on it etc but a person even if they had quite a few quid could only buy a personalised number plate for their car within a certain format which had to consist of numbers and letters and they would pay a pretty penny for these personalised number plates etc but then a company called

    registration transfers

    Entered the personalised number plate market and the prices of these personalised number plates started to soar in value

    Check out

    Elite registrations

    And

    Reg transfers. Co.uk

    And you'll see the prices these personalised number plates sell to the wealthy in the uk etc

    Bear with me lol

    Before the Internet people used to have to speed scan pages and pages of these personalised number plates trying to make words from letters and numbers using zeros for the letter o etc and 1's as the letter I etc etc

    Which I thoroughly enjoyed finding these very desirable personalised number plates etc

    But there was a problem lop

    I could save money for toffee and couldn't afford to buy these personalised number plates in order to be able to profit from them etc and still can't today lol

    But but one of these personalised number plate companies has also gone in to the domain name market

    Eg

    Elite registrations

    The number plate company

    Owns?

    Intervention. Co.uk

    A domain name reseller / registrar

    But it appears to only sell

    .Co.uk

    And

    .uk

    Website addresses

    But it's main number plate business has over 40 years of premium top dollar end users as does

    reg transfers who also have some of the best potential buyers for. Uk website addresses

    Isn't that right wizard lol

    Wizard knows most of them and understands the market too

    But when reg transfers eventually enter the domain name market

    The prices of. Uk Website addresses will soar in value like the uk has never seen and achieve millions for some. Uk Website addresses purely down to the fact that these two companies have significant amount of wealthy end users as customers who trust these two companies and they have the dough to buy pretty much anything suggested to them. By these two companies

    And when you understand both these markets and the potential uk end users for the. Uk Website address extension you'll understand just how important buying the most premium Website addresses in the. Uk Website address extension could prove very lucrative

    And when the prices of very good
    .uk Website addresses start to soar in value it will attract the big. Com dough investors from the states

    It's just that the uk market currently is still digitally asleep but only until

    Reg transfers

    Enters the domain name market as a reseller and or registrar

    But although I never made money on number plates in the uk

    I learned my domain name skills from the big. Com investors in the states but have a very good understanding of the uk domain name market and have managed to build up a little portfolio of domain names for reg fee using 40 years database experience scamming pages of number plates manually extremely quickly and now the Internet is hee my experience at playing the fruit machines back in the day lol works well with domain names etc lol

    But suffice to say

    The domain name market in the uk is still digitally snoring at the moment but this week investors in the states are buying up the uk domain names because domain name investing in the states is understood but these. Uk domain names became available whilst the uk domain name market was still asleep but it won't be for long and when the uk domain name market wakes up and realises that the domain names they need are already bought the wealthy end users will start paying proper dollars for these premium. Uk domain names

    But the best domain name auction for
    .uk

    And. Co.uk

    Domain names

    Is

    Currently

    Domainlore. Uk

    Up until now I got:
    PersonalCare
    ReptileShop
    GamingStore
    HappyEnding (which I hope to happen today lol)
    ForMen
    ForGirls
    EmergencyVet
    CyclingShop

    Out of about 1.5k domains that I was interested in (and were available after ROR expired), that was everything I managed to catch up until now.

    However, I've improved my catching strategy masively for the last day and I'm confident that I can become a real pokemon master...oops I meant, I think I'll be able to catch some nice stuff.

    Your not catching you just getting whats left over which means no one else wanted them everything decent is getting taken by the nominet members inc myself only 2%

    a few examples gamingstore not a term used in the UK would be gameshop ie
    bicycleshop are better names you have to look a old sales and if you don't see them happening on the co.uk then you won't see any action on the .UK

    I think it depends on the keywords being targeted. I was able to buy/register .Uk domains from June 30th I believe. I'm taking about buying them straight up not pre-registering.

    It should own both the. Co.uk And uk as it operates them both I think

    But yes

    It explains a bit about the uk market etc and different extensions

    But the

    .uk

    Is the best well I think so each investor may have different options etc

    I wouldn't bother buying anything other than

    .uk

    For uk market

    But

    .Co.uk

    Would still sell and is the most popular at the moment

    Although

    .uk

    Could quite easily overtake it

    Some endusers would want both the. Co.uk And. uk tho
