Sedo’s .UK Auction Results

On the heels of its auction last month that resulted in the sale of 240 .UK domain names, Sedo held another .UK domain auction that closed today. This auction saw 68 domain names sell for 28,621 GBP, which is just shy of $35,000 USD.

The auction just ended this afternoon, so the sales are not yet closed. Once the buyers pay and the domain names are successfully transferred, Sedo will publicly report these sales. This should be considered tentative until Sedo reports them officially.

The full list of sold domain names is below: GBP 4350 GBP 3200 GBP 2550 GBP 2150 GBP 2000 GBP 1550 GBP 855 GBP 750 GBP 700 GBP 666 GBP 625 GBP 510 GBP 487 GBP 485 GBP 435 GBP 385 GBP 385 GBP 310 GBP 309 GBP 285 GBP 285 GBP 235 GBP 232 GBP 185 GBP 185 GBP 145 GBP 132 GBP 125 GBP 125 GBP 121 GBP 121 GBP 119 GBP 119 GBP 109 GBP 109 GBP 109 GBP 109 GBP 99 GBP 99 GBP 99 GBP 99 GBP 99 GBP 99 GBP 99 GBP 99 GBP 99 GBP 99 GBP 99 GBP 99 GBP 99 GBP 99 GBP 99 GBP 99 GBP 99 GBP 99 GBP 99 GBP 99 GBP 99 GBP 99 GBP 99 GBP 99 GBP 99 GBP 99 GBP 99 GBP 99 GBP 99 GBP 99 GBP 99

    • It’s always good to be farsighted. You need to realized that .com’s will be used up one day. One-word .com’s are nearly used up; two-word .com’s will be, too, sooner or later.

      If is available, why would British people use or

      • “If is available, why would British people use or”

        Because they want to appeal to an audience outside of the UK.

        I can only imagine that is why a UK company called Lowell acquired from my company in 2018. I guess they felt they really needed the brand match .com domain name.

        • The purpose of acquiring brand match .com is understandable.

          Maybe my example wasn’t clear. I should have phrased it as: “For British people who want to start a company called “Big” and find unavailable, would they use or over the brand match I don’t think so.”

        • If their goal is to have clients in the US, Europe, and elsewhere outside of the UK, they would want a .com (if they are smart). If they only want to service UK customers, sure, would be fine. I can not think of a single company I do business with online that uses a ccTLD. Actually, I just thought of one – Carrd, which uses Carrd.CO. It’s a ccTLD but not really used in that manner.

        • Well… maybe different people have different thoughts. If I were a British and were to start an international tech company called “Big”, I would rather choosing or or over brand-mismatching or

      • “If is available, why would British people use or”

        Because British people are very familiar with .com and not familiar with .uk. The correct address would be not

  1. If you don’t like domains or only like one out of 1,500 of the extensions, why not take up a different hobby instead of spreading disdain on everyone’s domain blog. The negativity from you is enough already. Give it a rest. And quit squatting on Snoopy’s image while you’re at it..

    • Aside from these recent auctions (July/August) there was 1 prior reported .uk in the last 12 months. If you want to buy into that market good luck to you. Close to zero enduser interest in this extension.

  2. >here was 1 prior reported .uk in the last 12 months

    They were not “generally available” until July 2019 – so not likely to have had many reported 2nd-user sales prior to the end of the 5 year reserved rights period which triggered the recent “action” – they will have generally been “bundled in” with the righs holding corresponding prior to a few weeks ago

    • They’ve been available for 5 years. Some rights didn’t get taken up and they’ve dropped. The extension failed long ago. Mostly domainers who are not familiar with the UK domain space buying now.

      • Rob is absolutely correct about them not being generally available – and how this would affect limited public sales. Not sure what you meant about bundling. Many rights holders didn’t know that they had an option to register the .uk. Snoopy it’s disingenuous to make misleading comments.

        That being said. I’m from the UK. Started out investing in’s and end users have more interest in .co.uks than .coms. When .uk became a reality I sold almost all of my holdings, including a 2L / .uk pair (for $12,000) – Still confident I did the right thing in getting out.

        However, there are many in the industry, old timers (not necessarily “domainers who are not familiar with the UK domain space buying now” – seriously Snoopy, what is the basis for this comment?).

        These old timers, have Nominet membership (effectively are Nominet registrars and have TAGs), they have drop catching scripts themselves (some were very successful at getting names during the big release of all unclaimed .uk domains), there are many successful investors who have been picking up the .uks – so not all newbies as Snoopy believes.

        Although I picked up a few .uks for a few pounds each, I was also in an auction for one that I won at £750. To be honest, I regretted it buying it shortly after, but luckily someone made me an offer (through an Efty page I put up immediately after getting the domain into my account). They offered £500 and I negotiated it up to £1,500. Boom, I doubled my money in 4 days and I’m out.

        I’m sharing this because like with most things, they aren’t black and white. Life is full of gray (and more colorful) areas.

        I still think that UK businesses prefer over any other TLD, but just like 5 years ago, the start of .uk blew things up for UK domain investors. So much uncertainty.

  3. very cheap .Result auction.
    I have parking sedo,,,, all with Sedo Brokerage

  4. The UK auction in July, which lasted a week, and you could bid on just about all the registries, including GoDaddy, had much higher sales. for about 7 K if I recall.
    I see UK as competition to, not .com.
    And some country extensions have had higher sales than the same key word in .com, but this is mostly .de – see and
    I picked up 5 .UK domains in that auction. No expectations. If they were .com, they would be 7 figure domains. If I get offers, great. If not, c’est la UK.
