    I prefer the

    Bulby Award is heavily sponsored by the CO registries.

    From now, we are going to hear tons of CO “good”news to drive up sales but in actually we are seeing many dropping.

    Your website is okay (you paid for articles, theme etc) but they are doing it on purpose as your blog is well-known among domainers. They simply want to encourage other domainers to build something on .co.

    My answer to them: 🙂

    HED - High End Domains

    Great for your site but to be honest, your domain deserve a better site. Your website is just some content like we see on article sites hundreds all over the web. Build something more interesting, check and get in touch with members and try to make (outsource) site like,…. then you will win!!!
    Wish you all the best but need more to WOW

    P.S.: Not hiding behind anonymous because it’s a honest comment and want you to do favor so you will do a better site then you will come back to me and say thank you.

    @ HED
    “Your website is just some content like we see on article sites hundreds all over the web. Build something more interesting, check and get in touch with members and try to make (outsource) site like,…. then you will win!!!”

    Agree with you.

    Saw your site. Good site with full of information from business to tourism in Chicago etc. I think has been more than 7 years history and has developed to full potential.

    Whereas Bahamas.CO is only 1 year old. More work to be added as time comes and updated with more information to full capacity. Bahamas.CO has a clean and neat design, and can be improved gradually.

    Check out and

    I like the design of these sites especially Lizard Island, clean, modern, clear, uncluttered yet simple…with all information provided for visitors…

    Well done.

    Eventually all .com will migrate over to .Co company corporation commercial

    like many companies are beginning to do.

    and will eventually be a requirement.

    Look at it this way.

    Upgrades are a commonality

    we see this in HDTV

    in DVD to Blue-Ray

    operating systems, software

    so it should not come as a surprise that shorter is better and meaningful

    so an upgrade from .com to .Co is only natural

    and should not be a surprise to any of us

    to have to do this.

    June 4th, 2011 at 3:57 pm

    “…so an upgrade from .com to .Co is only natural…”

    Sound like upgrade from iPad to iPad2…

    3G smartphones to 4G smartphones…

    local computing to Cloud computing…

    hdtv to 3dtv…

    June 4th, 2011 at 8:41 pm

    Remember all upgrades cost money…

    Upgrade from .com to .CO also cost money as well…may be tax deductible…lol

    Wondering where shows in google/bing search. 1st page, can’t seem to find the .co at all. Hopefully this isn’t an indication with all .co seo. You’d probably have better search results with a .com even with something like or something, though not as lucrative as simply bahamas.

    But, the .co is a much better website, much more pleasant to view, congrats on the award.

    Went to that Bull S website, quite ironic that it’s a BS website itself so closed it up quickly.

    .CO is shaping up to be a solid investment for the people that snapped up the good names (10% or less).

    I look forward to see where it is at in 5 years. Such a small investment for the potential of a massive return.

    Shame so many missed out / snoozed. Those are the trolls that repeat the same old “.com is king”.

    Thnaks the lord that that .mobi fool is not in this forum. What’s his name. Lord of the Idiots? Someone needs to let him know .mobi is redundant. Just put an m. on your domain name like this…
    Much cheaper than buying a .mobi, don’t you think?

    What I don’t like about .CO.

    The Pro’s outweigh the con’s so I’m not jumping ship yet, but I can’t deny a few obvious problems with .CO.

    Visual: .CO and all two character domains appear to be missing something. It looks off. Take Compared to The three character .com balances the www at the front. If Apple suddenly switched to using .co, imagine the reaction it would create. Solution(?).CO might look better without using the www, but I’ve always thought the www was better in the url than not.

    It’s balanced with .com, take away the m and it looks off somehow. Put in your url and then take away the m. Am I right?
