.CO Now Available for Public Registration

The Internet just got a little bigger today with .CO opening for general registration. Beginning at 11:00 AM Pacific Time, .CO registrations began rolling in fast and furious at Webnames.ca.

A new domain launch is always exciting. For registrants it provides a rare opportunity to get truly premium domains – names that are memorable, dictionary words, combinations of words, popular phrases, trending terms and topics, first names, last names and place names.  Really good stuff is available at this early date!

Around the office, it’s exciting to see the variety of names being registered and share in our customers excitement when they get the exact domain name they want, or in some cases, have wanted for years.

With most of the quality .COM’s taken in the primary market, it’s getting harder to secure a good, global domain name unless you are willing to pay the going rate in the aftermarket. When searching for a new domain to represent a business, product or brand, most people have to go through dozens of variations before settling on a second rate domain.

.CO presents a rare opportunity for people to get all their names – brands, business and product – and also register relevant generic domains they can use to drive traffic, expand their brand or hold onto for future use.

Online shopping giant Overstock.com announced today that they acquired the domain “O.CO” specifically to target new audiences and expand its global brand.

“We think the O is a really important part of our brand,” said Jonathan Johnson, Overstock.com president. “We think many people think of us as the O. And single-letter domain names are rare so we’re glad to have this one.”

Overstock paid $350k for their new .CO domain, however you don’t need deep pockets to follow their lead. .CO domains are only $29.50 at Webnames.ca and this is the best opportunity you will every have to register great brand building and marketing domains.

Register soon, an opportunity like this only comes around once every couple years.  This is your chance to get the domain that got away from you in both .COM and .CA!
