One Million .CO Domains in Eleven Months

The one millionth .CO domain name was registered on 2 June, less than one year after its global launch .CO Internet S.A.S., the registry operator announced yesterday. Making the one million mark in eleven months makes .CO the fastest growing new global domain name in modern history.Since relaunching the ccTLD as a global option for domain name registrants, individuals, organisations and businesses in more than 200 countries have registered .CO domain names.”Entrepreneurs and innovative businesses around the globe are adopting .CO web addresses at an unprecedented pace, way beyond my initial expectations,” said Juan Diego Calle, CEO of .CO Internet.”To hit this milestone in less than a year is a great testament to the hard work and dedication of our team – and especially to the foresight of all of those who believed in .CO from the very beginning. From our retail and business partners; to the trademark and domain communities; to all the people, businesses and brands who are building their futures on .CO – we owe you a million thanks!”As a way of promotion and celebration, .CO Internet has commissioned a series of short films called “Under the Bulb” that will premier live at a private event to be held on 9 June during Internet Week in New York City.Under the Bulb tells the stories of the people behind the growth of .CO. Each inspiring two-minute film captures life from the time the big “light-bulb moment” first strikes – through the time their ideas are brought to life.”From startup to Super Bowl in seven months flat, we are a company of entrepreneurs,” said Lori Anne Wardi, Director of Global Communications of the .CO Registry. “Under the Bulb is our way of honouring the fact that behind each of these one million domain registrations, are one million singular ideas with the potential to change the world.” You can get an early preview of Under the Bulb right now at www.UnderTheBulb.CO.With registrations spread across every continent, customer penetration is currently greatest in North America (which accounts for approximately 50% of .CO domain registrations), and throughout Europe, (which accounts for approximately 25% of registrations). With over two billion internet users around the world, and an increasing demand for short, memorable, globally credible, domain names – the .CO Registry expects the rapid growth curve for .CO to continue over the next three to five years, with the greatest opportunities for expansion being found in the key developing regions of Asia and Latin America.To register your .CO domain name, check out America Registry here.
