“”The mean average sales prices for .co domains show a very solid start in the secondary market. From its launch in July through the end of 2010, .co names had an average price of 1,819 USD.
“2011 showed a stable market, and 2012 to date has the best mean average yet for .co sales. For a new TLD, this is a strong and stable showing on the market.
“Median sales prices also help to assess the true value of a TLD, as they exclude particularly high or low value sales that could otherwise impact the mean average for the extension. The median sales price for .co domains has also remained steady, showing that demand for the TLD has not waned.”
“The numbers say it all,” said Juan Diego Calle, the CEO of .CO Internet, “Sedo’s report confirms that in just two short years, the .CO domain has become a major force to be reckoned with on the global domain market. It’s exciting to imagine how these numbers will grow in the next five to ten years as the .CO TLD becomes even more widely adopted, developed, monetized and marketed by end users worldwide.”
