I watched the latest DomainSherpa review episode yesterday. Shane mentioned that we sometimes check .co.uk to see if a name is registered. I want to expand on that a little bit as it’s beneficial to understand the reasoning behind any technique so you can refine it to your own needs.
First, I usually only use this if I need to quickly find names with value amidst a multitude of crap. The reason I use .co.uk, is because it’s the most used English extension besides the old GTLD’s, it might even be more used than some of them. I don’t mean registered but used with actual sites on the domain.
This is valuable information because the usage trims down SLD’s, (well third level in the case of .co.uk.) giving you more value for your time than say .net. Dot net, while worth looking at has more junk registered as well as defensive and non English registrations. You can use this concept with any English CC Tld like .Ca or com.au and if you’re looking for .com’s in other languages you can compare the lists to whichever language/cctld you’re looking for.
Sometimes it’s just a bonus metric to use as a sort of confirmation that a name you’re looking at might be worth picking up. If you’re looking at a name and think, hmmm I like that one but I’m not sure, see if one of the English cctld’s is being used.
This is by no means some definitive answer, for or against your ability to sell the name in the future. It’s simply a tool, a piece of the puzzle, to consider as you’re searching for value.
