.CO Domains

.CO was originally the ccTLD assigned to Colombia but has since been adopted as an alternative commercial domain available to anyone. They are a great alternative to .com, as they can be used to represent any online ecommerce site, company or corporation.

.CO is a globally recognised web address that gives businesses and other organisations new options in branding their web site. Because it’s still fairly new, there are still a lot of great .CO domain names still available for registration, making it an ideal choice for businesses or companies whose desired domains are already taken within the .COM name space.
