Registrars Add .CO Domains to Their Offering in Preparation for Big Launch

By on July 7, 2010

MY.CO is opening up a world of opportunity for domain name registrars during the highly anticipated .CO launch. Their service offers registrars direct access to the .CO registry.

25 years after the creation of .COM domains, the .CO domain extension is being opened up to the world as a fresh opportunity in a crowded space. The anticipation is building like no other TLD launch before.

This new service from MY.CO allows ICANN accredited registrars such as EuroDNS to offer landrush registrations for .CO domains until July 16th and public registrations during the launch. It all happens behind the scenes, through a robust EPP gateway.

Additional features include:

  • WHOIS resource showing a registrar as the entity of record
  • Customer data kept private within a registrar
  • High performance EPP protocols, Tier 4 datacenter
  • Supported and authorized by official .CO registry (CoInternet)

Dedicated resources will be allocated during the landrush for each registrar partner, ensuring a smooth experience during peek volume. I imagine MY.CO partners’ and their customers’ pre-registrations will be successful during the landrush period with this advantage.

The .CO domain extension is proving to be very popular even before it’s launch and there is expected to be an explosion of registrations in the coming years.

Interested registrars can sign up here or learn more at MY.CO.
