As 2013 closes and we prepare for an awesome, crazy and trend setting 2014, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on 2013 with a rundown of .CO‘s highpoints. From launch, our team set out with the lofty goal of changing the fabric of the Internet. As we head into 2014, all indicators point to a path that continues to build a great community of entrepreneurs, businesses and brands that will be doing just that in the 2014.
For any that have met our team, you may have heard us describe our strategy as having three pillars – Awareness, Growth and Use. I’m excited to share highlights from each pillar and we’re looking forward to expanding efforts this year.
.CO is excited to have achieved over 1.5 million registrations in its short three years since the global launch. Year over year, the growth is an exciting 15% since September of 2012. Read More >
The .CO Registry is delighted to reveal the global launch of the European Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs) for the .CO namespace. This is the newest batch of languages launched this year and we are simply thrilled. Since January, .CO has launched 15 IDN language tables because we realize IDNs can be an important building block towards creating a multilingual Internet. The accessibility of additional global languages in the .CO namespace is intended to increase local interest and use. Now in our third year and with over 1.5 million domain names under management, .CO has truly become the domain of choice for startups and entrepreneurs around the world.
