It’s been a while since I posted here. I have been busy promoting/working on my other .CO site – SDCC.CO which is all about comics, comic con, etc.

While I have been gone, there have been MANY great things happening with .co domains. There have been some decent sales along with the news that .co was making an appearance in the 2012 SXSW as a HUGE sponsor – throwing parties and ultimately giving even more exposure to .co domains. One great item to bring up is that 4 of the 8 finalists used a .co domain. Here is some more info on the SXSW coverage: LINK

Love or hate .co – you still need to appreciate the amount of time and effort that is going into this extension. I have liked it since Day 1 – do I have 1,000 .CO domains? No – Just because you favor something does not mean you need to go balls out emptying your bank account.

The next big story is CNET’s coverage of .CO domain – There are over 1.3 million registered domains AND every single LLL .CO is owned by someone – The first is more impressive than the other. I feel that triple premium’s can fetch about $x,xxx but some of the shit ones should NOT even sell for reg fee. Most people consider LLL.CO to be worth about as much as

There have also many many $x,xxx sales followed by a surprising $xx,xxx sale. I plan on updating my latest .co sales with these figures – but here is what I have missed so far: $10,300 $10,300 $2,905 $1,000
BizX.CO $1,000 1000 Euros $5,500 $22,000 $1,700 $1,000 $1,000 $800

As you can see, there have been some OK sales. Paying $30 for a domain that sells for $1k is a pretty nice quick flip. Hell even paying 1 year to renew is still good.

If you have triple premium LLL co domains or dictionary words keep them! If you are new to .co domains, then don’t waste your time hand registering domains – you might get lucky with one, but the chances are slim to none.
