Blog: Leonie BarrieThe name of the game

Leonie Barrie | 4 April 2005

A good website name or URL like fashion.co.uk, denim.co.uk, bikini.co.uk, swimwear.co.uk or bridalgown.co.uk has the potential to rack up thousands of website visitors a day without any online or offline promotion - simply by virtue of the name alone. If you thought the best had all been taken, then here’s the good news: more than 2000 names like these are up for grabs for the first time since registration. They’re being made available to the UK fashion industry by Internet entrepreneur Steve Jackson who sees them being shared by established online businesses from the fashion industry who want a second bite of the cherry when attracting potential new business. I suspect it's too much for companies to join together to reap the benefits - but for any business that has bags.co.uk, costume.co.uk or even whitewedding.co.uk on its wish-list then now's the time to stake your claim.
