How did I get NY.co.uk?
The domain was aquired in Nominet’s short domain auction last year and it’s without doubt the most appealing domain name I got that’s less than 3 letters.
Most of my other one and two letter domains are under less attractive gTLD’s, such as .me.uk and .org.uk.
It’s also the most expensive domain name I’ve ever bought. However, I’m sure it will be a good long term investment. Because short domains like this are just that; investments. If developed properly, I estimate the value will increase over 25 times the initial cost. Hopefully, NY.co.uk will even be worth way more than that. Otherwise I’d at least never sell it.
I’m going to report continiously how it’s going with this premium domain and you can follow the journey here at Affiliate Specialist, my domain realated website.
