Comedy timing it seems, after chasing a domain for 3 years I finally managed to secure and purchase SJ.co.uk
They don’t get any shorter or rarer than that in the UK domain space (at present) only 25 LL.co.uk domains (letter letter) are in existence as they were registered before Nominet started operation, one’s like BT.co.uk VW.co.uk & HP.co.uk date back to pre Aug 1996.
This week Nominet announced they are looking into releasing 2 letter and single letter domains – so interesting times ahead for sure which should create quite a bizz and lot’s of interest at some point.
I had been chasing SJ.co.uk since 2007, the domain was not in use as the company had changed name some time ago, in 2007 I offered £1000 and every year I went back and asked again, and again, and again. Finally this year I saw the old Ltd company the name was registered under was dissolved so informed them, they updated the domain and told me they were open to serious offers. There were a few other interested parties with one of them swearing profusely when told the company was asking around £10k for it, I managed to buy it for high £x,xxx. A very short, memorable and valuable domain which is perhaps too vanity driven being my initials so one I probably won’t sell.
