NEW .CO Domains, Pregistration Available

Pre-registration is now open for .co domain names. I registered a one keyword domain, two minutes after receiving the email. For some reason, I thought I should check to make sure it was not saying it was still available. It was!

There will be an auction at a certain time with all those who paid $299 to pregister the domain. So just because you pre-register the domain, does not mean that is the actual price you are going to pay for it. Apparently, this is the way the process usually works. Somehow I missed that on the promotional page, oops. Thought others like me might not know the ins and outs of the process in case you miss the fine print, which can happen when you are trying to register the domain before anyone else does. Best of luck in getting your domain!

I don't think anyone who is in favor of this has the internet's best interest in mind. This is going to confuse users a lot.

Im out on this one!

At least the .CM was similar to both COM and CN. Not sure how good the .CO will be. But I would be interested to see how much people pay during the auction!

Let the fun begin!

There will be 3 core stages for this .co to become fully available and only 10 official registrars for the first year. The buzz is out, let the money flow and websites rise! :)

The only people who will benefit from this are the people running the registry and auction and naturally the lawyers. It isn't 1999 anymore.

So no one is registering their primary domains on the .co ccTLD? no preemptive strikes?

I shall wait until open season and then apply for my company name and my two favourite widget trade keywords...maybe!

I have to admit that mykeyword.co does look good:-)

.CO could stand for Company, Corporation, Commerce, Corp, Community, Co-op, Convention...... so a name like:

"YourBusinessName".co could be worth the $205 non-refundable trademark application fee, no?

that being said, im short on money and most likely wont register more ccTLD's.
