hmm....I am confused here.
Both your sites are using free scripts which anyone can download and install. Whatever features you have specified for them are available to everyone using those scripts.
Now we come to domain names, they are the free .be which obviously no longer are free since Jan31,2006.
For anyone interested, scripts can be downloaded from
http://www.tufat.com/script39.htm = osDate <<-- dating script
http://www.bie.no/products/phpodp = phpODP <<-- directory link script
Why I mention this is because reading your advertisement, I was impressed about maybe some nice unique script you developed as you elaborated upo all features, and I must consider it for purchase but moment I checked them, it just explains all.
May be I have been invovled with people who deal in unique scripts and good sites, these are all free scripts installed on account and trying to sell .be domains for some value, though were obtained free.
Not to flame but may be developing them further and getting high traffic can be a motivation for anyone to really purchase it. With .be story known to all, only unique or well constructed database worth hardwork and $, may interest people like myself.

I never intended to pass them off as unique scripts, I am sorry you took it that way.
Yes, they are free scripts that anyone can get. The only advantage to this is that they are already installed and ready to go. This could be a very attractive detail to a potential buyer who does not have much knowledge in setting up or designing a website, it's a website and domain ready to go! And as you can see from visiting the pages, I did not remove the copyright on either. I am in no way trying to hide what script it is.
As for the domain, yes it too was a free domain. As of today, they are no longer free and range in price depending on where you register them. Yes they might be frowned upon by some people for awhile, but again we run into the convenience aspect again.
I never stated a price and if I didnt mention in the opening post " I will sell these CHEAP!". Make an offer and I will take it most likely.

But yes you are right, there may be many who do not know how to install even small scripts when instructions provided, so it may come in handy for them.
