.CO Registration Deals for 10th Birthday

4

10 years ago in June, the late and great Lonnie Borck kicked off the launch of the .CO extension by purchasing e.CO at a charity auction for $81,000. Lonnie didn’t know about the auction until the morning of the event, but he drove to New York City to get together for dinner and ended up winning the domain name and supporting one of his favorite organizations. I remember that day like it was yesterday. Lonnie eventually sold e.CO for an undisclosed amount.

The .CO extension officially launched a month after the auction of e.CO, and the registry is celebrating its ten year birthday this month. Over the years, many startups have used and embraced .CO domain names, and the extension has taken off.

I saw on Twitter that a number of domain registrars are offering deals on .CO domain registrations. I thought I would share some of the tweets from various domain registrars so you can see the deals that are on offer.

There may be other domain registrars that are offering deals that I did not catch, and other registrars may offer deals at other times this month:

  1. On 10th anniversary, it was good to offer something really special like discounts on renewals and transfers.
