According to Nominet, since the price drop of 5 fee to cover two names
registation, they registered 250,000 names in September.

Alas, there will be speculators coming on board to snap up these brand names
and then try to sell them.

You can look up those .uk names via www.nic.uk and for the .com via

thankfully of course i have bunder.com as well as bunder.co.uk and
bunder.net and bunder.org!!!!
