The Ascendancy of .co

November 14th, 2010 11:11 admin Leave a comment Go to comments

An anonymous reader tipped the fact that, with the .com namespace getting pretty well mined out, GoDaddy.com’s front page for domain registrations now defaults to .co instead of .com. The article claims that GoDaddy registers about half of new domain names. Neither the article nor GoDaddy makes it explicit that .co is a ccTLD belonging to Colombia, or that registering one costs about three times as much as a .com, at $29.99 per year. And if you select a .co domain name from GoDaddy’s front page, a number of TLD variants are presented alongside .co — but .com is not among them.
