    Domain Sales

    I have the following domains for sale;

    www.broken-computer.co.uk
    www.broken-laptop.co.uk
    www.broken-laptop.com
    www.broken-pc.co.uk
    www.pc-emergency.co.uk

    What sort of money do you think each one will fetch?

    Thanks

    Domain names are ten a penny these days. www.broken-computer.co.uk is the best of the list but it has no web rep..

    What you need to do is get traffic to it, build the google rank and then think of selling it...

    As above a domain name in itself is worth very little. However if you can get it up in the top page of a search engine and get decent traffic going to it you may be able to sell it on.

    imo www.pc-emergency.co.uk is the best out of them.

    Trouble is as you are not using those domains , I could just request that nominet release the tag and then I would get it for the normal domain registration fee

    They take a dim view of cybersquatting now.

    sadly that's true and has happened to a friend of mine who had hoped to make a quick buck by selling them off - several got taken away from him and no compensation given.
