The dot-CO registry has continued its Superbowl special for one more week. Register dot-CO domains for just $11.99 until February 19 at encirca.com (http://www.encirca.com) .
The explosive rise of dot-co as a popular domain is in large part because many businesses have brands and trademarks that they would like to register but have been taken in .com. But, even big businesses like Twitter and Overstock.com have gotten in on the deal and have become early dot-co adopters.
“There have been over 600,000 dot-co registrations in less than a year,” says Tom Barrett, President of EnCirca. “Names are going fast and businesses should protect their brands and trademarks.”
The suffix dot-co is universally recognized as an abbreviation for company. In a dot-co registry survey, 75 percent of respondents equated dot-co with “company”, “corporation,” or “commerce.” In fact, nearly 50 countries use dot-co as a second level domain name to depict just that, such as co.uk and co.jp.
