budgetfootwear.co.uk and ethnicmusic.co.uk are just two of the gems I've picked up. The rest are all listed at my future uk catalog site Great British Domains (Love that name.) I have the .com & .co.uk registered as well, I just don't want it indexed under those names till I've done something more readable.
Of course I'm inexperienced, I registered flatting.co.uk before I realised that they call it flatshare, but you live and learn.
And equally, a lot of work went into it over the last few days, but not very much to say about it for the moment. Never mind, as I learn I'll report back.

The traditional appraisal scam works by scammers approaching a domain owner and offering a very good price for it. Negotiations continue for a while, and then the buyer "Needs" an appraisal to convince their boss, or for the bank manager, or some suitable excuse.

Many years ago, that's all parking was. Then somebody worked out that there were a lot of page views on these essentially empty sites. Commerce abhors wasted resources and pretty soon many of the registrars that used to provide a boring standard page started to provide a page with adverts on it. This provided a nice revenue stream to the registrar.
It's early days yet and he's only got a handful of posters but it definitely seems to have potential.
Given how wrapped up in .com & .us the overseas domaineering fora are, having a New Zealand centric site is likely to be very useful.
I'll be watching, and contributing. Why not join me?
I have fairly strong opinions on domain investing, so I thought that before I start giving my opinions on I should introduce that part of myself so readers know who I am & why I have these opinions.
When I came to writing a brief domaining bio for myself I started to feel it was a bit like AA sessions, as they are portrayed on TV anyway, my apologies if I've got it totally wrong.
