Here is a press release from the CO Registry:
.CO Registry Soon to (Re)Auction 100 High Value Domain Names Held Over from Landrush Launch Phase
The .CO Registry will soon make a number of premium .CO domain names available to interested buyers by holding a (Re)Auction of domain names that have been held over from the company’s original Landrush launch phase, which took place in the Summer of 2010.
The Landrush (Re)Auctions will commence on Monday, October 31st at 12:00 noon and run through Monday, November 7th at 12:00 noon EST. The (Re)Auctions will be managed by Pool.com (the same company that managed the original Landrush auctions).
Some of the names that will be made available include: (The full list of names may be found here)
OMG.CO, ASSETS.CO, UNIQUE.CO, ETC.CO, RAD.CO, ACCIDENTLAWYERS.CO, BIGIDEAS.CO, COMICBOOKS.CO, COSMETICDENTIST.CO, DOGFOOD.CO, ENGAGE.CO, FORMS.CO, FUNERALS.CO, HIVE.CO, HUB.CO, INTERACTIVE.CO, INJURYLAWYERS.CO, LAWN.CO, OFFROAD.CO, and NAMASTE.CO
While the original Landrush auctions were “closed” (meaning that you could only participate in the bidding if you had previously applied for the domain name during the Landrush phase); the re-auctions will be “open” to all (meaning that you can participate even if you didn’t apply for the particular domain name during the Landrush).
Interested bidders can find out more information by clicking here. Bidders are advised to register in advance for the auction and to use the next week to prepare their auction strategy – including making the appropriate business case to business partners and colleagues and ensuring the necessary funds will be available to secure key domain names.
According to Sedo.com, the world’s largest and most well-known domain market, .CO has “become the rising star in the Online Domain Marketplace,” with a robust market of buyers and sellers continuing to evolve.
“With notable recent secondary market sales such as OnlineCasino.CO for $100,000, Business.CO for $80,000, and Music.CO for $30,000, we expect the Landrush (Re)Auctions to create a lot of excitement for individuals and businesses looking to build and extend their brands online,” says Nicolai Bezsonoff, Chief Operating Officer of .CO Internet S.A.S.
