.CO Domain Name

Today (or yesterday – depends on time zone), the much awaited .CO Domains have been made public. This means that anyone now can purchase a domain name that ends with the TLD (top level domain) of dot CO. If you want to increase your options for branding your online presence, interested in grabbing that favorite “keyword”, a domainer, or simply just to have your own custom domain name, now is the time to jump the band wagon and register, because the speculation and the stampede of people registering .CO domains are growing exponentially. Right now, the .CO domain registration is somewhere between $25 to $30 per registration, depending on the registrar you are using.

Making Money With .CO Domains

You all know that .com domains have been widely used by domainers. Domaining is nothing more than buying a domain name to later sell it for a profit. The one good thing about speculation is that it normally drives the value of just about anything upwards. The earlier you jump in and secure that “golden” domain name the better. You never know what a .CO domain will represent in the near future. Although I am not totally convinced that it will be as valuable as a .COM domain, I am convinced that depending on the domain name that you manage to register, it can be worth plenty 🙂 Then, again I have been wrong for several times, so don’t take my word for it. It just seems to be a good investment right now if you are in to these type of things.

Anyway, I have successfully registered some “pretty good” .CO domains just a while ago and it took me about a couple of hours to find what I was looking for. HINT: All are keyword rich and no longer than two words. As an example, think of something that ends with a “co”, like, dites.co and you might just get a good one 😉 Hopefully they will have some value in the near future. Here is a small video about..

What’s your opinion? Do you think that .CO domains will be worth something of value in the near to mid-term? Have you registered any yet? What are you waiting for?

How cool is it that you got dites.co, dude they played right in to your hands!
Call me lazy but I checked out about 30 .co domain names and all the good ones are gone already. Heck there are only about 70 some words in the english language that end in co so you got to be a bit creative from this point forward. Watch your brand is all I can say Nabis.co!

Hi Dick. Agreed with you on that one. Actually I even performed a search for words that end with “co” and I only came up with 52 words. Most were Latin based and pretty much useless for any type of hype (I think). The dites.co was right there on the platter so I had to get it. Call it vanity but at least on one else will get it, haha. Nabis.co, Pepsi.co, Cis.co … some of these brands where available but no point of registering them, unless you are ready for a legal battle, lol. Finally, I won’t obviously call you lazy, because I won’t never agree with that, just be creative and I am sure you will find something that is both interesting and compelling. Keep it up dude, don’t give up

No, I haven’t yet tried any such .co domain name and no such plan to do it. But maybe in future..if I feel then I will be going for the same. Yes, I think it really looks useful and professional too. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Aswani. I’m sure that in time if you feel it is worthwhile going for a .CO, you will. I particularly went for it for two reasons. One was to speculate about the trends these names will have in the future and the other was just pure vanity, I had to have the dites.co, haha. Thanks for dropping by bro, always good to see you here

dites.co is SWEET. I having been racking my brain for the past week trying to come up with some domain hacks. Nothing yet, that has not already been registered.

7 DiTesco July 23, 2010 at 1:39 am

Yeah! I’ve been since yesterday still trying to register for more :). Most that I have thought about are already taken, but I’m not giving up, hehe. Anyway, I had to secure that dites.co. It just seemed right doing it

Congrats on dites.co

I have http://dool.in/

I pre-payed for 10 years!

Gonna put URL redirect on there at some point, but I need to make sure I have a very high uptime host and database backup plan that can put me back in business if something gets post toasted.

Hi Dave. So to show you that I am not invented imagination (haha). dool.in is absolutely sweet. Now, I have to look into that redirect thing. That was not my initial plan (did not have one) and maybe I can do something to put it to good use.

Hi DiTes.co 🙂

I bet you didn’t forget about Francis.co did you? 😉 Yep, I jumped on the bandwagon and reserved 4 dot CO domains. Not sure if I’ll ever use them but I did it more an investment for the future. I’m still working on obtaining a few more but as you mentioned, most of the good ones are taken.

12 DiTesco July 25, 2010 at 4:30 pm

Hi Robert. lol, I am really starting to have some fun with that dites.co domain. Still not sure what to do with it though 🙂

francis.co was the one I looked for right after the dites.co. Sadly, it was taken, so I missed that one. Anyway, got myself some good .CO domains and are now all for sale (except dites.co) on Flippa. We’ll see how it goes.

Hi DiTesco,
I’m sure .CO domain is really worth for its cost. If you register early, you can get many short domains and later if you don’t like it, you can sell them to someone for more money.
