    Two Letter Market Insight

    Not sure where to put this so its in here!

    A LL.co.uk is up on domainlore, which could be interesting to see where the reseller market places it.

    Not great letters, would imagine has some rarity value so guess 750-1000?

    To me there is not much difference to yzx.co.uk to zx.co.uk

    For balance, I have heard of some good sales / flips but I get the feeling some have been left holding the tulips so to speak.

    Totally agree on the tulip statement, plenty of pretty useless mutton sold off Nominet's lamb rack I would say!

    An interesting auction that will show the state of the LL.co.uk market.

    I think Graeme has said on many occasions that this market has been declining, and I think he's likely correct about this.

    Auction closed at 1,600 - what do people think about this result?

    I think he was lucky mate..... still wouldn't have a clue how on earth someone is going to make that name pay. I wouldn't give 400 for it, it would just sit there until someone came to buy it.

    You could use it for Jaguar XJ, but then get DRS'd? But even at 1600, it must show now that random non meaning LL's were over priced in general.

    I'm not surprised that it made 1600 but it has very limited uses aside from the obvious Jaguar connection, which could of course cause a problem.

    How much did the domain sell for when it was released by Nominet ?

    Someone on Acorn said that the seller made 500 if that helps?

    Here's Ty's list:
    http://exacts.co.uk/nominet-short-do...-who-got-what/

    The price for xj.co.uk is not on there.

    yx.co.uk seems to have sold for 900 - looks like the lowest priced LL.co.uk on the list.

    I was very tempted to bid based on the fact I could trade under the brand aleXJordan.co.uk (or XJ), but then thought there are better things to do and actually what benefit would I really have? I think the price is fair, not much potential for resale and I have no idea how the buyer will monetise the site, but I think 1500-2000 is a fair price for a LL.co.uk for vanity purposes, but like the LLL.co.uk market I wouldn't be surprised if the average price falls over the coming months. Good luck the the buyer.

    I'm not sure that comment quite covers it, the people who bought the LL.co.uk's during the auctions were only speculating a price on what they thought the market for LL.co.uk's would be, as until after the auctions there wasn't a market for LL.co.uk's , is there even a proper market?...I've seen maybe three or four on public sale, and know of several decent private LL.co.uk sales but that's about it, it's not like there is 18,000+ of them like LLL's.

    I don't think the market can be judged on two or three sales, It's like selling car.co.uk and spa.co.uk and then just from them sale prices saying that's the price of all LLL.co.uk's.

    (The above isn't aimed at you atlas, just an observation)
