There are few people in the domain name industry that I have more respect for than Paul Goldstone, Ken Hansen and Gregg McNair. In short, this is the dream team and .CO.COM is their horse in the new gTLD race. (You can read more about Paul, Ken, and Gregg here)
.CO.COM expects to see strong demand in the 69 countries that use .CO.SOMETHING as their go-to TLD. Countries like India (.co.in) and England (.co.uk) have long been used to .CO.SOMETHING. Of course it has to be easy for people all over the world to register .CO.COM domains and with 200 registrar deals now closed that’s a done deal.
The .CO.COM landrush starts today and runs through Tuesday July 8th when it goes into general availability. To see the full list of registrars carrying .CO.COM click here. Congrats to the whole .CO.COM team, this is the beginning of a great adventure and I look forward to watching them do what they all do best; building a great company and a brand that people know and trust.
