2015 was an amazing year for .CO and our .COmmunity—and fresh on the heels of our 5th birthday in July, we have even more reason to celebrate!
We’re thrilled to announce that .CO has surpassed the milestone of 2 million total domain names under management. Even more exciting, new domain registration growth has surged from 10 percent in 2014 to 18 percent in 2015!
Since we launched five years ago, .CO has become the domain name of choice for innovators, entrepreneurs and businesses in more than 200 countries around the world.
Innovative big brands like Twitter (t.co and Vine.co), Google (g.co and campus.co) and Taco Bell (ta.co) have all helped to bring mainstream awareness and adoption to .CO. Additionally, up and coming, buzz-worthy brands such as Meerkat (MeerkatApp.co)—the breakthrough social platform of 2015— and CommonBond (CommonBond.co)—the breakthrough student loan company—have helped draw attention to .CO.
We love to brag about the hundreds of thousands of innovators, entrepreneurs and startups that continue to make .CO their digital home. Check out some of our favorites here.
With over 3 billion Internet users around the world, and increasing demand for short, memorable, domain names, we are excited to watch .CO continue to grow—one big idea at a time!
