.CO was originally the ccTLD for Colombia but has since been adopted as a specialty domain available to anyone. First launched to general availability in July 2010, this TLD has great success so far with over 600,000 registrations. Only ten accredited registrars are able to offer .CO.
.CO domains have been positioned as a great alternative to .COM, as they can be used to represent “commerce”, “community”, “company”, “corporation”, “connect” and others. In addition, .CO is a popular choice for URL shortener services because it is one letter shorter than .COM.
Why register .CO?
.CO is a truly global, recognizable and credible web address that gives you exciting new options in branding your online presence. Because it is still fairly new, there are still lots of great .CO domain names still available to be registered, making it an excellent choice for customers whose desired domains are already registered in the .COM namespace.
.CO is the fastest growing global domain in recent history. In less than one year, over one million .CO domains were registered. Despite that impressive stat, there are still millions and millions of excellent .CO domains available for you.
