    As many of you know (or are about to learn) a bunch of .UK domain names just flooded the market. Companies that had the matching .co.uk domains got first crack at their .UK, and if they didn’t take it – onto the open market it went.

    Now over 40,000 .UK domains have been registered and while it’s a relatively small number when it comes to domain names, it’s not meaningless.

    Right now it’s hard to know what the split is between people who registered the domains to put to use vs. people who bought them as an investment…but I’ll use my crystal ball and say more than half are now owned by investors hoping to resell them later down the road.
