I’ll Bet You Didn’t Know About These .CO Sales! TravelRes.CO – $8,725, EnergyWatch.co – $20,000

I received an email this morning with a list of .CO sales, and it was longer than a few sales – it was a whole list! Until this morning I had only heard of three .CO sales – O.CO, E.CO, and Flying.CO – had I missed something?

Well I didn’t miss anything and neither did you…but we all may have forgotten about something. This is a re-launch of a TLD, .CO did exist in Colombia before this launch. So .CO domains have sold in the past before the re-launch and global availability. If the sales below are any indication of what’s to come then .CO could have more sales potential than I originally thought. So take a look at the list below and think – now that .CO is available to anyone, and can geo-target Google US just like .COM – aren’t .CO domains worth even more now than they were in the past?

Please be aware this list has NOT been verified by me in any way – the person that emailed me originally saw this on a DNForum post:

    Interesting, the question is, where were they sold?

    Great List… If this list is true, “Flying.co” is a great deal for the buyer…

    Good find @Ron – some very high sale prices for .CO names in the past!

    Morgan,

    Do you have any idea when this extension first launched?

    looks like .co is quite a promising catch

    Morgan,

    In this spirit of this thread and in regards to the development of .Co domain names, out of this list, which one would you develop and what ideas come quickly to your mind when you read these domain names? Additionally, did you purchase any that you will be developing?

    1). AutoFinance.Co
    2). DietPill.Co

    Thanks Morgan. I highly value your opinion and intuition.

    Arrgghhh…Sorry, just saw your posts about Bimmer.Co. You are in the market and you support .Co! Yay!

    Out of the two now, which would you develop and how (if I may ask)?

    Reply
    • Morgan July 31, 2010, 4:21 pm

      @Vjizzle – either one of those have good lead gen potential. Depends which market interests you more. As for the site that you should build on it, that would take a few pages to write 🙂 Feel free to reach-out to me via email and we can setup a time for a quick call.

    Lets just all hope dot CO isn’t killed off by Google from being an internationally recognizable website to Google USA. Otherwise all out dot CO’s will be worthless like our dot CM’s.

    Great sales but all those sale were for .CO.UK domains and NOT .co

    Look them up on dnjournal, all .co.uk

    most of them have now been taken in .co since that list was posted on the forums, ie: they have 2010 reg dates.
