.CO Founders Program Announced

Today, CO Internet S.A.S. (www.COinternet.co), announced the launch plan for the .CO Founders Program, an initiative designed to help “first movers” proactively develop domains with the .CO extension prior to the public launch in July.

The .CO Founders Program is open to all interested applicants from individuals to businesses and big brands.

Applicants submit an application via www.COinternet.co/cofounders explaining the .CO domain they’d like to develop.. .CO Internet will then review the applications and will award domains, at their discretion.

What .co all about?
The suffix .co is universally recognized as an abbreviation for company. In fact, over twenty countries use .co as a second level domain name to depict just that, such as co.uk and co.jp. In a recent .co registry survey, 75 percent of respondents equated .co with “company”, “corporation,” or “commerce.”

As a new domain, there are millions of great domains available. By participating in the Sunrise or Landrush period, you’ll have first dibs on your preferred name to help develop or secure your brand online.  Remember, .co is not a restricted domain – it is open to all.

Get in before the rush and reserve your name today with EnCirca. The Sunrise period for global trademark holders is from April 26th through June 10th and is followed by Landrush for anyone interested in .co from June 21st through July 13th.
