.CO Domains

Dear forum,

I don't know if this have been discussed already but i want to hear your opinions regarding .co domains.

I have seen a lot of promotion regarding these domains, sometimes making them more than just another ccTLD.

The landrush is coming to a close on Tuesday.

Regards

Re: .CO Domains

Landrush is over. General registration starts this week.

I like 'em, because for one thing, I expect typo type-in levels to be substantial, and should get some nice bleedover traffic from .com

and for another thing I expect Columbia to be a more stable host country from a policy standpoint, more like Tuvalu with .TV than China with .CN

Re: .CO Domains

If we go back in time 25 years or so, when 'they' were deciding which domain ending to go with first, then I would say that '.co' probably would have been the most obvious choice (in comparison to '.com').

But, and it is a very big 'but'.. :-) ..'.com' was the one they went with, and the fact is that the internet was built upon it. I say this because I read a curious article recently from the promoters of '.co'. They were trying to suggest that '.co' is somehow better than '.com'.

Of course, fair play to them.. and, yes, it may well have been the better choice at the outset of the web, but now '.co' has no chance and will simply slide in to ignominy, like so many of the other TLD's that tried to start a fight with '.com'.

That said, however, I think the '.co' offering will do well and I wish them the best of luck with it.

Cheers,

Re: .CO Domains

didn't a .mobi sell for 200k?

dud

I'm not saying .co is worthless. I would love .co.... I'm just saying that the big players don't play fair and use unfair practices to score their names.
